Peace Pipe Description
You love being out of bounds, charging big open slopes in deep snow. Sometimes this means you climb but you love that too. Your ski needs to be strong and solid on windblown hard sections and even groomers when you’re skiing runouts. You want the most versatile wide ski you can get. Most of all you want the ultimate tool for going fast on the steeps and in the deep. Speed Range: 7-10
Features- The 115mm waist and 14.43M turn radius provide the best planing and turn shape for actually carving turns in powder and soft spring velvet. The Pow Camber has the most early rise and reverse sidecut in the tip for effortless, catch-free skiing in all snow conditions, even heavy crud. The Razor Cut sidecut gives this wide ski incredible edge grip on the hardest snow.
- Put the Sexy Back in Skiing by Brooke Edwards
- I have the 179 Peace Pipes mounted with 22 Designs telemark touring binding, The AXL. We have had a rough season in Alaska with many difficult conditions from wind hammered sastrugi, to rock hard groomers, to feet of heavy cement like slop. None of these are easy to telemark gracefully in, but the Peace Pipes have given me an incredible advantage with their state of the art design. The dramatic sidecut has allowed for me to ski this as my every day all mountain ski, allowing me to lay down sweet carves and respond nimbly to jump turns through crud. These have been my teaching ski as well since they have managed gracefully to rise to the occasion of every technique and perform with ease. For telemark skiing in the wet heavy mucky moo, the early rise tip allows me to get up on step and rise above the schlop. It is key for preventing the famous "tele-dart" where the back ski dives and one goes over the handle bars for a closer look at the snowpack. For the couple of days that we've been graced with powder, this ski is a no brainer, practically floating from turn to turn like it was set to its own rockstar soundtrack. The Peace Pipes are my go-to, every day, feeling sexy on my teles, type of ski. I suggest you buy some and see how much sexier you become.

- Great Tele ski! by Brooke Edwards
- They are sweet, responsive, snappy, fun, sexy and alluring. They always catch peoples eye on the chairlift, so I am constantly sshchpeeling on them: blah, blah, blah...you should buy them, blah, blah blah. Today I tele skiied in a super narrow steep long chute called Xmas chute about 3 runs....they snap into quick little jump turns, which is crucial to have that response under foot when tele skiing the steep and narrows. Thanks for all you guys do at RAMP! Love the bag, love that it comes with candy and love my job as Rep!!! (Posted on 3/18/11)
- New brand, great product by Adam Battersby
- My name is Adam Battersby and I am a freeskier based out of Salt Lake City, Ut. The first thing I must say about these Skis is that don't be afraid of to try them because they are a new brand. I know most people think because a new ski company starts off small they have little room to make good quality skis. For Ramp this is in fact the complete opposite. For me I was a bit skeptical at first but the second I slapped the peace pips on my feet it totally changed my outlook on new brands. These skis are build to last and they handle better then the competition. Before I got some Ramps I was a dedicated Volkl rider for 7 years. I need to explain how I more then loved the switch. The peace pipes are a great all mountain ski with a reversed camper tip that allows the rider much comfort and stability in the deep snow. They are also very light and great for all Back-county enthusiasts because it makes touring far distances seem minuscule. As far as durability they also top the charts. I have taking these off cliffs as well as the big terrain park jumps and nothing will stop them. So no matter if your going from the Back- country to the Ski resorts you will always find yourself in total delight when riding on Ramps. Cheers

- Light and responsive powder ski by Cullen McCutcheon
- The first thing I noticed about the peacepipe is how ridiculously light they were, it was really nice to have a light pow ski for once. the peacepipe is like a regular ski except fatter and at the end they beef up a little more and rise early. As a free rider I first looked at them and I was a little disappointed at them not being twins, which isn't a thought in your mind first run on them. I love how the fatter tips hold the backs down for me so I don't have to lean back, to discourage my noses from catching, for me that was my biggest problem skiing in deep pow. Skiing them the first time was like being detached from the ground, it enhanced my pow shredding experience like no other ski has. In conclusion the peacepipe is a ski for other companies to think about when designing they're powder ski's.
