Methodical & Tenacious

“The Nocturne is not only a tool light enough to move through vast terrain efficiently, it also provides the stability, playfulness and progressive mount point I expect from a WNDR Alpine ski. No longer will I need to sacrifice downhill performance, as this ski finds the balance of up and down, opening up the canvas of the alpine for endless possibilities!” - Paul Greenwood

Breathing life and joy into the alpine sufferfest, The Nocturne’s minimal weight allows you to go the distance, but features more freeride oriented geometry.  The slightly rockered tails, progressive mount point and medium turn radius enables a freeride-inspired approach to technical terrain. The aluminum tail block shape is designed to easily penetrate stubborn snowpack on a techy skin track or when you’re setting up a ski anchor. Aided by our stability-enhancing Algal Core and Algal Wall, these attributes facilitate balanced hop turns and swift descents from distant places.

    Great skis for Shasta

    Used my Nocturne 88’s to climb and ski Mt. Shasta. They absolutely ripped! My new favorite ski of all time. I was concerned on the shorter length I chose but ended up thankful in some tight areas we decided to ski on the west face. I am amazed in the stability of these skis, I find full carbon skis to be too whippy. The 88 is perfectly damp and comfortable in hard variable conditions.

    So epic to hear! Congrats on the summit and amazing day out, that's what those skis were made for! Here's to many more spring summits and ripping descents. Glad to have the Peak Sports crew along for the ride! Thanks for the review.

    Apprehensive? I was, too.

    After a winter on big, reverse camber skis (usually ranging from 120-132mm underfoot) and in deep powder, I was very skeptical about these Nocturne 88’s. I mean, I haven’t skied something this skinny since…2005?! Anyway, now that spring has rolled around, the snowpack has gone diurnal, and I’m spending lots of time walking uphill, it turns out that the Nocturne is absolutely the way to go. Obviously a skinnier, lighter weight ski is optimal for long tours and for carrying on the back (hello scrappy ski mountaineering adventure), but what I didn’t expected was how well these would perform on the downhill. Wow, they’re so stable, hold an edge, and ride through corn and variable snow like no other! Don’t be apprehensive like I was, these are amazing skis from an amazing company.

    Thanks for the love and support, Emilie! That's the kind of experience we made those skis for. Hope you have a WNDRful spring on them. See you back on the wider planks again soon enough!

    I've spent years avoiding skis like this as I have tried lots of bigger lightweight skis to find that they are unpredictable in chunder and didn't have predictable releases when you wanted it, so were never worth cutting weight to have that experience.

    One lap around the spearhead on these bad boys and I was sold. Stable, predictable and confidence inspiring - they ski like a scaled down big ski vs a lightweight nightmare! (Also, surprisingly surfy in deeper snow too)

    Great ski 🫡

    So psyched on this ski

    Two turns in and I knew this ski was going to be high on my list of favorite skis. These things rip and their capabilities extend far beyond corn snow or pool table smooth wind board. In the first couple days of owning this ski I put on a little over 25 miles and around 10k in vert. They’re light weight and make touring seem effortless. During this time I encountered all flavors of snow from blue ice to head-high pockets of low density pow to hot slop and they shined every step and turn of the way. The progressive flex creates a sense of stability and encourage you to trust that edge when things get steep and spicy while the tip shape and early rise keeps you from diving a tip when managing your way across breakable crusts or farming some pow turns.
    The Nocturne 88 hasn’t let me down yet. Much recommended for all seasons and adventures on snow.
