Versatility Has a Name
Only want to own one pair of skis? You should reconsider that. But if forced, reach for the Peak 98. It leaves trenches on hardpack and blows up powder.
If you ask us, the Peak 98 is the ski that 80 percent of skiers should be piloting 80 percent of the time. It’s that versatile. Looking at nothing but groomers today? You can cruise at family speeds or blast super-G turns. Off-trail in powder, crud, chalk, or corn, it’s nimble and floaty enough for all but the deepest of resort days. The 98 defines the all-mountain category. Want the same silhouette in a more playful build? Bounce over to the Peak 98SC page.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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
The 98s were made to rip on packed snow at least 50 percent of the time, but you can still smear ‘em off trail, too—it's a shapeshifter. Here, a paulownia and ash core gets sandwiched by two sheets of metal. But to detune the ski just enough for bowls and big lines, we didn’t run the bottom alloy wall-to-wall. A vertical cut in the upper metal makes for buttery turn initiation.
Dropped my Deposit last April, received in Oct and first chance to get on them @ Tahoe in Jan. First turns always tell the tale and these were awesome straight away. Great on groomed, in the bumps and in the trees. So easy to turn and they carve like crazy when you roll them over on the groomed with little to no effort
Did not have an opportunity to try them in powder but I am sure they will be great !
Push the buy button on a pair you will be stoked that you did the first time you get on them
Wow! What an incredible ski! Doesn’t matter if you are in the steeps of Mammoth, deep dry powder of Sun Valley, or the Sierra cement of Tahoe these skis will not disappoint.
Thank you for the entire Peak Team for the innovation…
I was holding out for a demo day but decided to go for it. I am an advanced skier who primarily ski’s Wolf Creek ski area. We have fabulous snow on POW days and groomers.
The peaks are perfect for my daily driver for this mountain. They carve up the groomers, slice through the crude and float through the fluff in the tree’s. To me these ski’s are very user friendly.
I have been on the Peak 98/178 for four days now at Killington ,Vermont! I am so happy that I took a chance and tried this ski. It is even better than advertised! I like it so much, I would love to eventually try a few others in Peak's line. I hope skiers will give it a whirl. You will not be disappointed. This ski edges like crazy on firm snow, never hooks if you jump on the edges too hard, and does every turn radius flawlessly. It is easy to ski, well balanced, and has a huge sweet spot. The quality of the product is apparent right down to the packaging. It is also a crud buster. I would ski this either as an East or West everyday ski and I would guess it would float through most powder except the really deep stuff( 18 "or more depending on your weight) and then, I would probably go for the Peak 104. I am a lifelong skier and this is one of the best one quiver skis I have ever been on. It will make an intermediate quickly better and advanced to expert skiers will have a tough time finding it's limit! It makes you want to charge down the slope!
Haven’t had a chance to use them yet
