The Art of the Turn
Skiing is addictive because the terrain and snowpack are always changing. You’ve gotta adapt. That’s where the Peak 88 comes in. It’s the go-to tool for workaday groomer skiers, but catch the corn cycle or drop into a chute in the alpine and it arcs fall line turns off-trail, too. Smear-turn them at will, or absolutely rail. Once they’re under your feet, it’s up to you to decide.

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
If not for the KeyHole™—and our dedication to delivering a smooth flex in each length—the 88 might come off as burly. Two full sheets of metal sandwich a paulownia and ash core and the bottom alloy runs “over the keys” in ski engineer speak. What the hell does that mean? The ski’s edges offer more bite.
But don’t get scared off. Because the 88 is built around our concept of “accessible power,” it only skis as hard as you do.
Skied my new Peak 88’s last weekend. Already, this may be my favorite ski ever. The 88’s excelled in every condition. Incredibly easy to ski at any speed or any terrain. Awesome job Bode and Peak!
I got a pair of the 88s (176) from the BOGO sale and tested them on Big Mountain here in Whitefish. I was impressed initially at how well they held an edge, their smooth flex, and variable radius turns both on and off piste. With 2 days usage I packed them up and headed off to Lake Louise. The snow was thin and hard. The skis were great and instilled confidence due to their edge hold. A day at Panorama on the way home gave the skis a chance to perform on shaved "snow cone" manmade snow. The skis were great again drifting, carving and slarving for a supper fun afternoon. I'd definitely recommend the skis as a daily driver all mountain ski for either coast.
I sold my Volkl RTM 84 UVOs along with my old GS race skis, deciding to take a chance without the security of demoing the Peak 88s first...To say the least, I am very happy. They absolutely rip! Skied pretty well in the powder I was in too which made me enjoy them even more.
Just waiting for some snow. I have no idea whether the skis are what I'm hoping for...
