Ranonee racing is tough not only do you have to get up and down, but you have to get up and down faster than everyone else. Dynastar's Pierra Menta Race Carbon Ski was developed to crush the climbs and descents of its famous namesake race in record time, with a full carbon construction that keeps the weight of a pair that's two skis to a hardly believable three pounds, making it one of the absolute lightest skis in the world. It has a rocker in the tip to prevent catching on the uphill and to smooth out the descent, and traditional camber in the 65mm waist to give you enough stability to navigate choppy, icy downhills. The sandwich construction helps to deliver powder and stability to the edges, and the super light wood core won't hold you back on the climbs or feel too toothpicky on the descents. It's made in Chamonix, too, by folks who understand what rando racing and ski mountaineering are all about, so it's got uphill speed in its DNA.
