We all know what a difference an aspect can make, especially on those days that can change from blower fluff to wind-scoured stuff in a few turns. If you want the one ski to rule them all SCOTT has upgraded and revamped their Superguide line and the finished product is a top-notch shredder for all conditions! An updated core construction for 2020/21 is made up of Paulownia and Beech wood combined with carbon and aramid reinforcements. This gives the Superguide 95 extra stability and noticeably more dampness without sacrificing weight...a major upgrade over previous Superguide skis...which forced us to team up with SCOTT. The changes have made a serious impact on how the ski performs, allowing it to hold an edge and plow through variable snow conditions far better than it’s predecessor. A subtle Pro-Tip rocker keeps the ski tip up on top of the snow without compromising performance. SCOTT's 3Dimension sidecut shape has three different radii that make the ski easy to steer in a variety of turn-shapes. The carbon/aramid fibers add torsional stability for a strong edge hold on and off the skin track. With the updates the Super Guide 95 is a lightweight ski that has the perfect amount of dampness, stability, and power to perform in any and all snow conditions!

  • Pro-Tip rocker keeps those tips floating in deeper snow.
  • 3Dimension sidecut adds stability and facilitates a precise edge hold.
  • The full-length dual light-wood core produces a more consistent flex and feel.
  • Carbon/aramid fibers add stability without adding weight.
  • SCOTT Precut skins are the perfect fit for your new skis.

Questions & Reviews

I absolutely love everything about these skis: 10/10.

The Scott Superguide 95 is the most powerful variable snow skis I've had the pleasure of skiing within this weight class. I weighed these at 1492g and 1478g in a 178cm. I assume its insane power at this weight is due to the beech and/or aramid along with an actual full length sidewall and longer effective edge. The tip has the best, most abrupt rise I've seen to stay well above chunky snow while maintaining large amount of surface contact: it's a traditional camber ski not an early rise rocker situation aka "the banana" profile (something like a Dynafit Free 97 also a fantastic ski but that's besides the point.)

If you live in the PNW (see "cascade concrete") the Scott Superguide 95 is as light a ski as you should ever go with combined with about the best materials build at said weight that you can possibly have. If you go with a 100% paulownia core/full carbon/1250g toothpick it's because you're simply pursuing an objective & survival skiing (which is great, I have one of these,) but turn your brain off for a second and just try a ~1500g ski (that's also not just built with paulownia & carbon) and you'll realize this ski still gets you to the top of St. Helens and you'll have to think hard about whether there was actually any increased effort, but with a MUCH more enjoyable downhill experience.

Skiers: keep in mind that these are powerful, precision (read: more edge contact, longer turn radius, stable on variable snow) skis so they won't be very forgiving for skiers still dialing in their pivoty, slarvy turns on steeps (which is easier with "banana" ski profiles of tail rocker/camber/early rise rocker.) That being said with its intentionally longer turn radius it's easier to disengage from your *current* turn making the *next* turn easier to enter and with good technique you can just slarve down mogul fields with this dude for this reason (yes, this is a great 50/50 resort/touring ski it's wild a ski this light can be stable in heinous resort conditions which is great because people pretend the backcountry isn't absurdly heinous... it is... often.)

Repetition because it's a counterintuitive, underdiscussed fact: longer turn radii (21m in this case) give the skier more freedom to define their turn shape whereas a shorter radius (15m/16m) makes the release into the next turn more difficult.

Anyways, epic ski wish more backcountry skis were like it.

Question from Simon S
Can't praise enough your valuable experience through self testing, so one more question....
Torn between those bad boys and dynastar m-tour 99. Looking to complement my arsenal with an all-arounder since I own a sub 90s and 100olus.
Most reviews give an advantage over the dynas for more of a smooth operator and Scotts for better hold . I do need both actually, as everyone does!
Walk on either maestrales or Scorpius depending on distance.
I m medium build 5'10" with good physical condition venturing all over the place from East to West and all between.
Answer from Emmett I
Simon, The M Tour 99 does great in powder and can hold an edge on firm. A very sweet ski. For your quiver spot, and if you are looking for something that can handle variable and difficult snow, the Scott will probably be the better choice.

Question from Giannis
Hi there,
how do you compare these with the Blizzard Zero G 95? Are they stiffer? thank you!
Answer from Jeff
Giannis. I just put my hands on both, and they are Stiff skis. The Scott seems to be slightly stiffer. Both are Hybrid sidewall/cap designs, but the Scott has more tip to tail sidewall. So they would probably have the edge of icy and nasty snow. Despite that, I have been told they do well in powder.

Question from Bill
Looking for a starting point for my wife looking for a touring ski. She is 5'2" and a strong intermediate/advanced skier. The ski will be used as a 50/50 resort, uphill travel ski/backcountry ski; likely 80/20 with uphill travel being the most frequent use. We live in the Pacific Northwest, avoid bumps like the plaque, love ripping groomers when there isn't new snow or "chopped" up new snow. She'd error on the side of downhill performance over perseverating on weight. Thoughts on what ski to look at?
Answer from Brett S
Thanks for your question, Bill. For what you've described, the Atomic Backland 98 sounds like the perfect ski. The Superguide 95 is an exceptionally powerful (e.g. stiff) ski that is also very light and requires perfect ski form at all times. The Backland 98 can still cruise groomers and off-piste conditions with confidence without being too overbearing. It will also be more damp, better handle deeper snow conditions, and have a more playful feel. Please feel free to reach out if you have any other questions!

As a former NCAA racer and a bigger guy (6', 220 lbs.) it can be hard to find a ski that's stiff enough to make the downhill enjoyable without adding a ton of weight ont he uphill. Scott has broken though for me with the Superguides. These skis have plenty of downhill juice without a lot of extra weight. I live in Vermont and have skied these in conditions ranging from deep powder to groomers to firm crusty snow. I'm continually amazed by their performance. If you want a long turn shape, these probably aren't the perfect ski, although they certainly could wear that hat as well. But if you want a stiff, technical ski without a ton of weight for all sorts of conditions, the Superguides are worth a hard look.

For what it's worth, I normally spend a few weeks a year skiing in Chamonix and these are the perfect ski high mountain terrain where you need serious trust in your gear.

I paired with the Atomic Backland Pure bindings for a very tour-able setup. Great combination for uphill and downhill performance.
Reply from Chris L
What size ski did you go with?
Reply from Patrick W
I ended up going with 178cm. I was on the fence, but given the terrain variations across locations I ski, it made the most sense.
Reply from Raymond H
Like Patrick W wrote, a great, technical ski.
I have these same Superguide 95s in a 178 length. Salomon Pure binding.
Bought these for Euro trips for a mix of resort skiing and touring, thought since Covid haven't been back to France. Light setup for airline travel too, with one pair of skis.
These are great carving skis, more stable, and damp than my stiff, earlier Superguide 105s.
While I haven't skied mine in Eastern backcountry, glade powder (I have the 175 length SG 105s for that), for cruising the resort, untracked 4-5 inches of snow, they are great. Skin up with this setup at resort, for quick transitions. Just bang the heels to pins forward, rip skins, and you are ready to go. I ski these with my Maestrale RS boots. May try my Scarpa F-1s next.
My skis, with binding and leashes weigh 1825 gms/ ski.
