Difference in Mens and Womans skies?

Is there a difference between men and womans skies? just wondering

Well, I'm guessing women probably like blue skies, and men are amenable to cloudy skies.

I like skies that are obscured by heavy snow, but I don't think that is necessarily a male thing....

The principal differences are in construction and content that affect stiffness and in the binding mounting point recommended by the manufacturer. Oh, yeah, there's also the cosmetic differences.

One of our local shop owners tries out women's skis to see how they are. I don't know if he uses any of them on a regular basis though.

I used my wife's B3Ws once. Heh, that was amusing. Being 6'0" and 200 lbs on 150cm skis was different. They actually worked fine as long as I was actually skiing. When tried to slow down a lot or stop on the edges, I found it was a LOT more work, but that's likely because I'm use to a lot longer edge.

If you want a softer version of a unisex ski, try a women's ski. You might have to deal with flowers and such though.

Better than paint. Make your own custom graphics

I like snow clouds in the Skies, while my husband prefers Sunshine in the Skies!

As for Skis, we tend to share, and yes, my husband has skied on some of my WS skis and likes them.
For instance, he has the Blizzard Titan Cronos, and I have the Blizzard Titan Eos, which are the same dimensions, but.........
The Eos has one less layer of metal, and a forward mount.
The Cronos, a tad stiffer with a couple different mounting positions for the system binding.

Does this help?

lol, i was not planning on it, just a guy at our local shop rented out some womans skies to a guy, cause they were the only fat skies they had for people as short as him, so I was just wondering

Some women's skis are the exact same ski as the men's version except for graphics. For example the Salomon Scarlet is the same as the Gun, the Head Mojo90 is the same as the Sweet Fat Thang. So it really depends upon the manufacturer & model.

Generally speaking they usually design women's skis for a lighter & shorter skier. So lighter guy may do just fine with a women's ski. My wife prefers the men's version in most cases. It's really boils down to individual preference.
