5 Best All-Mountain 2021 Skis for Women

All Mountain Skis for Women 2021

The way all mountain skis have improved in the last few years is, quite simply put, spectacular. Modern skis ride smoother, are easier to control, and perform better in all conditions. And all mountain skis, like the ones shown here, represent some of the most balanced and capable performers on the mountain today.

The problem is that there are a LOT of good skis out there now. In fact, it’s safe to say it’s less a question of good vs. bad skis and more about good vs. a different good. And that can make things surprisingly hard when you realize any one of the options you’re looking at could work very, very well for you.

So, we assembled this list of some of the Peter Glenn staff’s favorite women's all mountain skis of 2021, to help you get an idea of what to look for and what you want your next set of skis to be.

Armada Victa 83

Armada Women's Skis - Action Shot

Built to take you from beginner to accomplished skier, the Armada Victa 83 Skis work with the skills you already have and help you cultivate new skills too. And it does all that using Armada’s AR50 Sidewall Construction, which combines the durability and predictability of sidewalls at the middle of the ski, with cap construction around either end for reduced weight and easier control.

Völkl Yumi 84

Volkl Yumi 84 Alpine Ski

If you crave agility, the Völkl Yumi 84 Alpine Ski can deliver that with ease. The just-in-between 84mm waist gives it balanced stability and response, and once you get it on edge things really start to happen. See not only do you get Tip & Tail Rocker brining the contact points closer to you, but you also get a 3D Radius Sidecut. By changing the shape of the ski as it gets further along, that 3D Radius Sidecut is able to give you quick edge to edge response while still remaining extremely stable and predictable even on varied surfaces.

Elan Ripstick 88

While most skis are content with a profile that starts rocker before transitioning to camber then back again, the Elan Ripstick 88 Ski does things a little differently by shifting things left-to-right instead. By putting traditional camber on your inside edges, your downhill ski always has plenty of grip even on icy sections. And the outside edges are end-to-end rocker, allowing your uphill ski to act as a powerful pivot, enhancing agility and providing more predictable performance on varied conditions.

Blizzard Black Pearl 82

If you ask a lot of your skis, the answer might be the Blizzard Black Pearl 82 Ski. It’s built using a Sandwich Compound Sidewall construction method, which uses a full-length sidewall to improve the flex and the durability of your ski. But lots of skis do that. What makes the Black Pearl different is the way it uses carbon fiber laminates integrated into those sidewalls to help bind the whole package together. The result is a ski that performs as a single unified body, more capable and more confident with performance that’s sure to please. A similar construction is available in the larger Black Pearl 88 for skiers looking for a more powerful, powder-friendly ride.

Icelantic Oracle 88

Icelantic Oracle 88 Ski

In a segment defined by versatility, the Icelantic Oracle 88 Skis stand out by being able to really deliver exceptional performance in any conditions on any terrain. The Tip Rocker profile pulls the nose contact points in closer to you, giving this ski exceptional agility despite the wider waist. So not only do you get to enjoy enhanced agility on groomed slopes, but you also get more float when you’re on untracked powder. Pair all of that with Icelantic’s legendarily powerful construction and you get a ski that’s capable of showing you a good time no matter where no matter when.
