Rocky Mountain Daily Driver
Our 104 is only a wee six millimeters fatter than the 98, but it’s an entirely different animal with more emphasis on a surfy feel. Back East, it’s a pure powder ski. Out West it's a surprisingly powered up all mountain ski. It slashes in trees, but you can take it all the way to Trenchtown, too. Back off the gas and scrub speed at will when it's time to get mellow.

No Buyer’s Remorse—Ever.
"We test Peak Skis, so you don't have to."
That's a guiding principle here at Peak. From phase one prototyping to final production and beyond, we test our skis to make sure they offer the huge performance window we envisioned. The customer is not our guinea pig.
But we also know that every skier is looking for a specific "feel" in a ski, and we support that. If you aren't happy with the ski you selected (maybe you bought the wrong length or model) you can return it for another model/length—or a full refund.
We're tempted to call that a "no questions asked" exchange, but in fact we like to ask questions, so we get better at what we do.
Here's the deal: If you receive your new Peak skis in the summer or fall, you have until December 31st of that year to return them for another set of skis or a full refund. (That way you have time to ski on them in December.) If you buy and receive your skis after December 31st, you have 30 days to ski them and decide.
To make this easier, just hold onto that nice box the skis come in and then send us an email at email@example.com and we'll respond with a return label and notify the carrier to come get them. That's when we'll ask some questions so we can get you on the right skis. Of course, you'll need to have a shop remove the bindings first. But that's about five-minute job for a tech.
It's a pretty easy return—for a product with the dimensions of lumber.
Returns on Non-Ski Products
Unused apparel and non-ski gear (anything that is not a ski) that is in new condition with tags and in the original box, may be returned or exchanged within 30 days of purchase.
Returns on Promotions
The return policy on promotions varies based on the offer and is communicated in the advertisement, offer email or the page related to the promotion. Typically, all items in the promotion must be returned in order to receive a full refund and non-ski products (bindings, goggles, etc . . . ) must be in new, unused condition, with tags in the original box. Keep this in mind if you plan to mount bindings that were part of a promotion. Buy-one-get-one free offers require the return of all items to receive a refund as partial refunds are not permitted.
Shipping on purchases over $50, in North America, is free (for returns too). Elsewhere in the world, the customer pays shipping, duties and fees, but that’s all easily calculated with our FedEx app at checkout.
While unlikely, it’s possible that you will receive a pair of skis with a minor flaw. It’s also possible, while out enjoying your skis, something goes wrong with them that is unrelated to the ski conditions or environment. Should a circumstance arise where you discover a flaw after putting your skis on snow, and you are the original owner, we will happily replace them for up to three years from the date of purchase. Enjoying your skis is paramount; if enjoying your skis results in damage to the skis from any number of hazards that exist in the mountain environment, we trust that you’ll understand if we have a tough time replacing them due to conditions or circumstances outside of Peak’s realm of influence.

Whats Under the Hood
Although our Peak 104 has a wider footprint than our 98 for float, and a bit more rocker in the tip and tail for that surfy feel, its still got the 98's powered-up core—ash and poplar—and the full metal jacket of titanal in both the upper and lower laminates to soak up vibration and add edging power. Out West, it’s such a versatile ski that we don’t think twice about throwing it on the rack.
I've had 2 days on the skis so far. Fitted with Salomon Warden 13s.
First day, Alta, primary surface powder 8". These skis maneuvered through fresh and chopped snow easily. The float wasn't crazy but I was looking for drive which these did. Easy to manipulate in tight areas I often found them trying to roll to the edge on the traverse but that is the newness of the ski. They seemed to keep my legs in better shape in terms of fatigue over the period than other skis.
Day 2 Snowbird, primary surface packed powder, secondary surface, powder. Snowbird is not known for grooming and these skis handled the uneven surfaces with aplomb. They are easy to railroad and drive down the pitch while maintaining control. As the day went on and the snow fell these turned into excellent slash skis to enjoy some straight UT blower pow.
The only problem with the skis is the skier himself. For those worried about Bode sticking his name on the ski, these are everything you would expect from the tip to the tail for performance.
Now I just need 1 all day session with Bode to be able to find my weight distribution and off we go.
I am 5’3 and weight 165. I got this ski in the 168. Over the last five years my go to ski was the Stormrider 95 from Stockli. I was able to get up on my new Peak Skis today, and I was shocked at how easy it is to ski these. What I mean is with the Stormrider you really need to drive the ski, and you do feel more in control at high speeds. I felt like a billy goat and could go anywhere on the mountain with them, but they are heavy ski that does require you to drive them with your legs which can wear you out. These Peak skis do not need to be driven like that. I had to pause a few times because they are so responsive and intuitive to what you want to do it was effortless. I was taken a back at first because of how light they were, but they do not get pushed around. They drive when needed to be driven, and they are so nimble when you need them to be. I took them in a variety of terrain and the more I was on them the more confidence I was able to build up, and before I new it the day was gone. Normally I don’t ski all day because me legs get tired, but on these I was able to ski without thinking if my legs would be tired or sore. When you print them up at higher speeds on a groomed run they set they edge easily with the slightest adjustment from your ankles and they absorb that energy into the turn and bounce you right out into the next turn. It was so fun. I was able to find some powder stashes ad this ski floats as well. On my old pair I would have an issue with one ski wanting to dive deeper and the other floating higher and I would throw me off. This ski I just kept my center of gravity right on top of the ski and was able to surf through that power. I need to spend more days in those conditions on that. The one area where it really impressed me was in tracked out clunky snow. I normally feel pushed around if the I am not aggressive with the ski in that type of snow, but on these I was able to take a more nimble approach and with the lightest touch was able to ski down terrain that normally intimidates me with quick light turns. it made today one of the best days I have had in years on the mountain. Now all I want to do is sell all my old skis when I get home and just stick to Peak and buy more of them.
Peak 104’s are now my favorite ski. Super stable at high speeds and stable in the piste . Amazing skis!!!
…but …THAT. WAS. AWESOME!”
I’ve been riding some 104s everywhere. They bomb it all. Quick to initiate turns. Stable as all get out at full speed. Any snow, they go. Totally unreal.
I love my Peak 104's. Stellar ski -- well done!
