Atomic Bent 100 Skis · 2023
Super popular, beloved ski designed by the artist and skier Chris Bent Chetler with Atomic. Super surfy freestyle rockered ski that you can take in the park and all over the mountain. This ski is softer but super playful and a fantastic all-mountain park option.
Super versatile all-mountain ski! 100mm underfoot with rocker/camber/rocker. You can take these things anywhere and have fun doing it. Stability at speed but "surfy" in crud and POW. A true do-it-all ski!
Head Kore 105 Skis · 2022
Coming in around 1850g per ski at this length, the Cochise and Mantra are around 2300g, but due to Head's unique build construction, these perform more like those heavier skis. They obviously will deflect and chatter more than heavier skis, but these are very impressive for their weight. Easy on the legs too!
This is an ideal one ski quiver for powder, resort chop, or side country and backcountry laps! It's light, maneuverable, playful and fun! A real top favorite for doing it all!!
Fischer Ranger 102 FR Skis · 2022
Fischer uses carbon in the tip to reduce weight and provide strength. They have a long tip rocker and a shorter tail rocker. They feature a twin tip shape, making them a blast as a freeride style ski. They love to make smeary, surfy turns in soft snow, but they carve well on hard snow when up on a high edge angle due to Fischer's Aeroshape.
A great all-mountain ski that performs well in all conditions, offers plentiful flotation in light powder, and can be looked at as a "long-term ski".
DPS Foundation 100 RP Skis · 2023
The camber profile of this ski really allows it to surf in deeper snow, even though it's not as wide as some pure "powder" skis, since 45% of the length of the ski is tip or tail rocker. But, with camber underfoot, it's not going to be impossible to hold an edge on ice/hardback. That being said, while all these skis have a similar width underfoot, the Foundation 100rp is the most powder focused of them all.
DPS's legendary reputation for powder skis is on full display here. Carbon stringers for stability, a light bamboo/poplar core, and an all mountain rocker make this a true all mountain powder ski. Stable at high speeds but nimble through trees and of course, a fun floater on fresh powder.
K2 Reckoner 102 Skis · 2023
The Reckoner 102 is awesome on jumps, while also holding its own in soft snow. With a versatile mid-fat waist and all-terrain twin rocker profile, these skis have what it takes to hang in the steep and deep, but have zero hesitation when it comes to hucking a big cliff. This is a true all-mountain ski with plenty of versatility!
Whether you're finding good air in side hit city, carving up the ice coast, or dropping cork threes with your eyes closed, this all-terrain twin rocker will be your go to one ski quiver to handle it all - guaranteed to always keep things interesting.
A intermediate+ skier who wants to have great time no matter what conditions the mountain throws at them.
DPS Foundation Koala 103 Skis · 2023
This ski is quick edge to edge and stable off-piste. A 22m turn radius offers quick control and powerful carving. It has a bamboo core and combined with camber underfoot, the ski is poppy and fun, yet durable and damp with a quick response.
All of the good stuff that is included in the 112 RP above is found here too! The cream of the crop construction marries multi-variable versatility for a ski that you will enjoy longer than any you've purchased before.
DPS Pagoda 100 RP Skis · 2023
Incredibly well rounded ski for someone who wants/needs a one ski quiver. 15mm turning radius makes weaving through the trees a breeze. Strong enough to rail medium length turns on groomers, and providing stability and dampness to blow through chop.
DPS Pagoda Tour 100 RP Skis · 2022
A ski that is meant for touring and getting uphill quickly, and lightly. A large mix of materials come together in this ski to create something that people keep coming back to get more of. The aerospace foam used in this ski will help keep you comfortable and confident with any BC conditions that you run into! The combo of Paulownia and Ash for the core works well with the carbon in the ski to provide a great and dialed-in feel in every turn that you make.
DPS did something pretty special with their Pagoda Tours. With its 15m radius and rocker profile (short effective edge), these are some quick skis that love trees, powder, and jumping into that coulier. At only 1500 grams per ski, you'd think these would be noodly but not so: the carbon laminate of the ski combined with the quality construction keep the skis torsionally rigid and responsive even on harder snow conditions.
These skis are going to have a shorter turn radius than the other two skis I've recommended, so you're going to be able to handle tight trees more easily -- and who doesn't love that? It's great if you're getting into backcountry touring at all (or even just uphill at the resort) but it's still going to feel like a traditional downhill ski on the descent.
Völkl Secret 102 Skis · Women's · 2022
These are the widest model in Völkl's All-Mountain Freeride women's collection. The Völkl Secret 102 are built with the same materials and construction as the more firm-snow-focused Kenja 88. Metal runs along the edges of the ski in both the tip and tail, however, the metal does not connect underfoot in order to provide a strong, stable feel on edge- it lightens the ski as well! They have implemented a 3D Radius sidecut which uses a longer radius in the tips and tails, and a tighter radius underfoot to allow for different turn shapes dependent on how you're shifting weight.
Volkl Mantra 102 Skis · 2023
102mm underfoot and a bit of tip and tail rocker will keep these afloat on the deep days, but a nimble sidecut and plenty of titanal ensures you'll keep your edges locked in at high speed on any type of snow. The titanal prevents chatter and increases torsional rigidity while blasting though chunks and refrozen mank. A perfectly blended sidecut profile helps your edges bite in firm conditions while maintaining stability at higher speeds.
Black Diamond Impulse 104 Skis · 2023
Advanced skiers who want a ski with a lot under the hood to match their talents! Simply put, the Black Diamond brand constructs them with quality in mind and careful attention to balancing the right blend of materials and laminates to result in one killer final product. You have a high-strength pre-pregnated E-fiberglass lined up along multi-directional axes and toughened up with epoxy resin for what's likely the best build in this entire list. Inside you also have internal dampening materials and elastomeric laminates that allows this ski to absorb vibrations and really smooth out the ride down like few can in this category. This thing handles very crisp with a nice responsive return in short arcing turns in tight spaces, it's like handing yourself the keys to a new Porsche!! The famed BD durability shines right thru with their enduring PTEX 4000 bases (unbeatable when waxed) and full perimeter sidewalls to ensure this is a setup that will perform more lots of seasons to come!
Faction Mana 2 Skis · 2023
Mana Progressive Twin Shape which is versatile for freeride skiing. A slightly skinnier tail width than tip width means this ski is faster and performs better on the downhill than a completely symmetrical ski. The Mana has identical twin tip height for easy switch skiing and landings. Medium turn radius keeps these agile and snappy, but stable. 102mm underfoot this ski is ready for groomers or powder.
Icelantic Maiden 101 Skis · Women's · 2023
The Maiden 101 is their signature ladies freeride ski - What does this mean? It means they're ready to slash powder, navigate tree runs, plow through chopped up snow, and rail down fresh groomers... All while remaining playful and composed in tough terrain. Approachable for intermediate skiers, but the Maiden's can also be pushed hard as you progress!
This ski combines the features from Icelandic's Nomad and their signature "Fly-Weight" core, making it the ultimate women's-specific freeride ski. This ski has a rockered tip and tail with 2mm of camber underfoot, which allows the ski to excel skiing some sick powder, charging through some crud, and having fun all over the mountain.
A daily driver for women who want a ski that can ski the soft snow and edge and pivot with ease.
Decathlon Skis Slash FR500 Skis · Women's · 2023
A great and easy to rip freestyle-focused ski from Decathlon. The Slash has a 100mm waist and is versatile in many conditions but can really stick up to choppy groomers and some fresh snow, especially with a solid tip and tail rocker profile. Stable and progressive, this ski can handle bumps, trees, groomers, and everything in between!
Head Kore 103 W Skis · Women's · 2022
The width and rocker give you the floatation for the deepest powder days, but great edge control and a sidecut reminiscent of their narrower all-mountain relatives provide great edge control and versatility on the days when there isn't 12 inches of pow to slay. This ski is easy going and playful, but burly enough for experts to get a kick out of as well.
Moment Sierra Tour Skis · 2022
Moment makes some of the best performing skis on the market and their women's sierra line is no different. They're playful, strong, and light and can handle any day in bounds and any day in the backcountry too. I tour on a pair of moment skis and think they are the bee's knees. Carbon fiber stringers, cool graphics, and strong wood cores make these things a weapon on snow!
DPS Pagoda Tour 100 RP Midnight Rider Special Edition Skis · 2021
Power, energy, and dampness; DPS achieves this through a mix of ash and paulownia woods, a proprietary carbon laminate, and aerospace grade foam that keep this ski very light; about 1370g! 100mm underfoot will provide ample float to keep you on top of that cold smoke while also maintaining a comfortable width when the snow conditions aren't perfectly cold and blower. The unique rocker profile of the RP series of this ski gives your a total of 45% rocker in the ski, enough to keep you on top on those 30+ inch days we all dream about. A manageable length for touring and a 15m turn radius means this ski can turn even the most mundane days into surfy and playful fun or provide confidence in steep couloirs.
Voile V6 BC Skis · 2020
The Voile V6 is the ultimate backcountry machine. Extremely light for the way up with plenty of stability and carving ability of the way down. A very special fish scale pattern underfoot keeps you moving in variable terrains and cuts out the tedium of putting on and taking off your skins too often!
DPS Pagoda Tour 100 RP Skis · 2023
DPS commands a cult following of rabid fans for a reason: their skis are incredibly lightweight, super fun in powder, and very intuitive to ski. The Pagoda is the opposite of a hard-charging ski, preferring instead to cut easy turns through deep powder and navigate effortlessly through trees and glades. The Pagoda boasts a 15 meter turning radius, which is absurd for such a wide ski, and of course, DPS prides itself on its construction, marrying a paulownia and ash core with a carbon laminate and DPS's amazingly light aerospace foam to provide stiffness and shed weight. The Pagoda can easily be driven by an intermediate skier looking for powder stashes, all the way to an expert skier looking to dive into a steep couloir.
Voile Manti Skis · Women's · 2022
With a 100mm underfoot, this is a ski that can handle it all. Its early rise tip and gradual tail rocker makes it playful when the snow is soft and deep. It can also lay down carves on the groomer. Will help with quick and controlled turns in firm conditions.
Voile Manti Skis · 2022
If you find yourself on the skin track for an extended period of time or want a weight savvy ski, the Manti is calling your name. Light weight aspen wood keep weight down but give good pop. Triaxial fiberglass and carbon fiber keep with light but give the ski backbone. At 104mm underfoot this ski is wide enough for decent powder days but will be able to hold its own in the chunder. Rockered tip and tail let the skis get over obstacles and turn on a dime. At 7lbs 11oz this ski is a stable, hard charging ride that will get to the bottom and want to lap it again.
DPS Pagoda Tour 100 RP Dreamtime Skis · 2021
The skier who wants to float, be able to pivot quickly thanks to a short turn radius, and charge hard with dampness in the ski to absorb all the bumps. Most likely the top touring ski in this list in terms of weight and downhill performance.
