Ditch the herd
The 98SC is our ski of choice for inbounds hike-to terrain, chalky alpine snow, spring ski tours, summer couloirs, and anytime you want a bit more maneuverability in a mid-fat width. It’s got range. The SC stands for “side country,” meaning you can pair it with pretty much any boot/binding combination. But its match made in heaven? Resort-to-AT hybrid bindings and freeride boots with walk/tour modes. Skiing is a big sport. Push yourself.
We offer free shipping on any purchases over $50 in U.S. That applies to returns too.
Elsewhere else in the world, the customer pays shipping, duties and fees, which is all easily calculated with our FedEx app at checkout.
Don't love your skis? Exchange or return for a full refund. 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.
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
It comes out of the same mold as our powered up Peak 98, but we’ll tell you right now that the 98SC is no clone. Less metal (still two layers, though) saves weight for shouldering or skin tracks, and makes for easier piloting with today’s walk-mode boots and rubber soles. Meanwhile, our Storm Rocker footprint offers more splay in the tip and tail for a ski that’s easier to break free in trees and crust. The build makes for a surfier feel off-trail, without sacrificing edging on firmer stuff.
Late season acquisition so can only report on old snow performance. They are a joy. Thought relatively wide ski plus rocker might be work or sloppy on hard snow, but no. Can drive ‘em easy or hard. And no doubt the width, softer forebody, and early rise will make them just as fun when the new snow arrives.
I skied the 98SC at Alpine Meadows May 31 , they skied so well I didn’t want to stop skiing , quick and playful. Incredible all mountain ski from ski hikes to hard pack a very versatile all mountain ski.
These skis are lively and lightweight. They are stiff when you need it and playful when you need that. Perfect for small women like me!!!
With my new 98SC’s I’m able to ski terrain I didn’t feel comfortable with before. The new skis give me a more positive feel, better feedback and the confidence to do more. Such a great all around ski that performs well on both powder and groomed runs. Highly recommend.
A bom!!!...INCREDIBLE skiis. The first day it was amazing feeling, easy to ski...I tried them in different snow conditions , very responsive and when you point them DOWN, THEY GOOOO...I think they are making me a better skier...jajaaa!!!
