5 Best All-Mountain 2021 Skis for Men

All Mountain Skis for Men 2021

Having a big collection is nice, and on paper, it would be great to have a dedicated powder ski, and a dedicated resort ski, and a touring setup, and … okay we’re getting ahead of ourselves. We love skis, and we love gear, but the reality is that our ski bags are only so big so when we travel to the mountains, we’re really only able to bring a single pair.

Which is where these all mountain skis come in. Designed for versatility and adaptability, you’ll be happy to have them under your feet no matter whether you’re warming up on an early-season groomer, or chasing the fresh after a mid-season storm.

Fischer Ranger 85 Ski

Focus on the fun and the Fischer Ranger 85 Ski System with RSW 11 GW Bindings will take care of the rest. They’ve got the heart of a freeride ski, with Freeski ROCKER improving soft-snow performance and a hollowed-out core that uses Milled Air Tec to cut weight so the ski can be more responsive and easier to control. But it’s scaled in such a way that you’ll be able to enjoy it on regular terrain as well. That’s why the core is reinforced with Fiber Tech laminates, to give the ski improved vibration reduction and help the Sandwich Sidewall Construction deliver tuned flex and confidence-boosting edge hold.

Nordica Enforcer 94

Are you ready to rip? Because the Nordica Enforcer 94 Ski is. That’s why it’s become a go-to pick for resort riders craving stability at speed, traction that refuses to quit, and a response time that will make your local fire department jealous. How does it do it? Partially it’s the All Mountain Rocker Profile, but the real secret might be the True Tip Technology, which eliminates some of the sidewall and extends the wooden core all the way to the very end of the ski. This gives you a smoother ride and quicker response times by giving your power a more direct path down to the snow.

Head Kore 93

Head Kore 93 Ski

Okay we picked the Head Kore 93 Ski for a good reason, but the reality is any ski from the Kore line could be here. The Kore 87 offers enhanced agility with a narrower waist that allows for quick edge-to-edge transfers, while the bigger, beefier Kore 99 is the one you want if you’re looking for something that shines on powder days. But the Kore 93 splits the difference to give you a ski that is equally at home carving groomers or chasing pow in the trees. Whichever width you pick, the TNT Rocker profile will help you make the most out of every turn, locking in grip on hardpack and enhancing overall agility.

Salomon XDR 80 Ti

While other definitions of “all mountain” include sidecountry and powder missions, the Salomon XDR 80 Ti Ski System with Z12 Bindings defines it as making the most out of every inch of the resort. That’s why this ski is narrower, because it would rather have you screaming down the steeps with confidence that you’ll be ready to switch edges at a moment’s notice. And as you lean into your next carve, the carbon and flax fibers surrounding the full-length Poplar Core will give you lively response while providing a surprisingly damp ride that cuts through any chatter on less than ideal surfaces.

Rossignol Experience 88 Ti

Rossignol Experience 88 Ti Ski

The Experience line is a great collection of beginner-friendly skis, but don’t hold that against the Rossignol Experience 88 Ti Ski System with SPX 12 GW Bindings. It’s still a fine pick for beginners, but more experienced skiers get something from this setup as well, thanks to a Titanal Reinforcement laminate. Not only does this specially blended alloy smooth vibrations and increase durability, but it also makes the ski livelier and more responsive when paired with a Composite HD Core that uses Air Tip VAS inserts to cut weight and enhance handling.

Of course, this is just a slice of what’s out there. There’s a ski to suit every style, and every budget, so if you’re not seeing what you’re looking for in this list let the gear experts at Peter Glenn help you choose the one ski that can be your complete quiver this winter.
