5 Best All-Mountain Skis for Women in 2020

Best All-Mountain Ski Options for WomenIf you’re not sure what you want, you probably want an all mountain ski. Designed to meet the needs of most riders in most conditions, the modern all mountain ski gives you a level of versatility that would be unthinkable even just a few years ago. Which is great news, because it means you can get a ski that rides great at your home mountain, but still perfectly capable if you plan on heading on a trip to some place new.

Unfortunately, though, that’s not the only decision you need to make. All mountain skis are adaptable and versatile, but that doesn’t mean there’s not still specialization. Some are going to be faster, some are going to be better on soft snow and powder, and some are more agile if you like taking a lap through the moguls. For example, here’s some of our staff favorite women’s all mountain skis-

Icelantic Oracle 88 Skis

Built in Colorado, the Icelantic Oracle 88 Skis give you proven resort performance no matter where you usually ski. They use a Tip Rocker Profile that combines rocker and camber elements to give you tuned response and agility, letting you have all the traction you need while still staying forgiving and fun. The textured Carbonium Topsheet is a structural part of the ski, giving you impressive performance while keeping weight surprisingly low.

Head Absolute Joy Skis for Women

Head Absolute Joy Skis

Versatility doesn’t mean anything if you can’t control it, so the Head Absolute Joy Ski System with Joy 9 GW Bindings are built to put you in the driver’s seat. They combine Head’s innovative Era 3 technology with Graphene laminates to give you exceptional stability and control, even while you get quick turn-in and agile response.

Fischer My Aspire Skis

The ski to choose when you’re sick of the rental shop, the Fischer My Aspire Ski System with RS 9 GW Bindings are a great platform to build your skills on, and they’re also a great way to enjoy the mountain if your skills are already built. They use a hybrid profile, making them more agile and easier to control, but the real treat is under your feet. With just 71mm underfoot these skis are very responsive, making them perfect for smaller riders or anyone looking for a more mellow experience on the mountain.

Völkl Kenja 88 Skis

If your idea of “all mountain” includes scouring weather reports looking for the next snow, these Völkl Kenja 88 Skis might be for you. They’ve got the spirit of a freeride ski, giving you ample float from the hybrid profile and generous 88mm waist. But they’re still ready to rip while you wait for the next dump, because the 3D Radius Sidecut gives you multiple options for whatever conditions you’re facing.

Blizzard Black Pearl 82 Skis for Women

Blizzard Black Pearl 82 Skis

It’s a little skinnier than the competition, but that doesn’t mean these are beginner skis. Instead, these Black Pearl 82 Skis from Blizzard are designed specifically for performance where you ski the most- on groomed trails. The narrower waist gives you greater agility, as does the Rocker-Camber-Rocker Profile which moves the contact points closer to your feet. That means you get the stability and traction of the ski’s full length, even while you enjoy the agility of a much smaller ski.
