It’s not every day that a new ski brand hits the market with as much power as Peak Skis. Developed by professional skier Bode Miller, the Montana-based company is shaking up the industry with design technology that placed Miller on one podium after another during his racing career. With a range of all-mountain skis based on an innovative design, Peak Skis aims to revolutionize the way skiers perform on the slopes. Learn the story behind the brand and trademark designs that make Peak Ski a special experience.

Origin of Peak Ski

Bode Miller is the winningest male skier in North American history. He won big because he knew more about skis and ski design than most of his competitors. Miller knew that reversing his ski design could give him an edge. As a ski designer, he contributed to the invention of the modern sidecut and many other innovations that still benefit skiers today. Peak Skis brings Miller’s lessons to life through innovation and thoughtful product development.

Introducing Keyhole Technology™

Miller had no intention of developing new skiing techniques. In fact, he accidentally discovered the benefits of keyhole technology during his World Cup days when a ski builder on his equipment team used a piece of laminated metal to attach a pair of damping plates to a pair of GS skis. cut through. That cutaway created a bend point in the flex that allowed forgiving corner entry and powerful cornering from the Zero. Bode immediately recognized the advantage: he won the GS Crystal Globe on those skis.

Today, every pair of skis in the Peak Ski range of all-mountain skis features a refined version of the same cutaway concept called KeyHole Technology™. The flex of the keyhole ski has an easy pivot point. Peak’s production team uses a laser cutter to cut an oval into the ski’s giant front body. This cutout eases torque in the shovel for a loose feel, while increasing torque for a firmer grip on the edge. What you get is a smooth and playful entry with confidence-inspiring grip underfoot and through turns.

Peak 88

Designed for those who spend 70 percent of their time on groomed snow or with snow-packed skiers, the Peak 88 turns head-to-tail with ease and dares to hold on to hardpack.

Peak 98SC

Looking for a ski that’s a few hundred grams lighter for inbound hike-to-terrain or short backcountry tours? This is the incredibly versatile Peak 98SC. This model still features Peak’s Keyhole Technology™, but with less weight for off-trail skiing or on-piste skiers looking for a lighter setup.

peak 104

Powder skiing is a 24/7 dream. But sometimes hardpack is reality. With Peak 104 you don’t have to compromise. It is suitable for the darkest powder days at the resort, but you can also increase it when the forecast gets low. That’s the beauty of KeyHole Technology™.
