Most Recommended Skis of 2020
The QST 99 is one of the easiest skis to recommend for a wide range of skiers. It performs well in all conditions and has a great blend of stability and forgiveness. You can ski it hard or take a more laid back approach and still have a ton of fun on this ski!
Daily driver to blast through the crud and handle varied conditions with authority.
This is an all-mountain ski that is heavier than other skis for more power. The weight can come at the cost of some maneuverability, but the Enforcer is a ski that still performs really well, despite its mass. The benefit of this heavier ski is that it can soak up vibrations a bit more effectively. When you're pointing it downhill and the snow surface is a little rough, these will crush it.
This is an incredibly fun all mountain ski that will be light and playful but still stable and smooth turning on crud! This ski will hold an edge well on groomers but is still wide enough to float in the powder!
The tapered shape from tip to tail gives these quick edge-to-edge performance, making those groomers and turns a lot of fun! This ski has a powerframe titanal plate mid-ski, giving these bad boys a good amount of rigidity to help you transfer that energy from edge to edge, and it also contributed to dampening and crud you may blast through. To boost the dampening and vibration absorption abilities of these skies even further, Salomon used Carbon Powered C/FX and Cork in the construction. These are going to give you a fun and smooth ride all over the mountain, especially on groomers. This is what can be considered a one-ski quiver, seeing as it can do a little bit of everything and excel!
These are the perfect waist width ski at just under 100mm. Ideal for carving edge to edge on the hard pack as well as floating through fresh powder on the snow days. The award winning honeycomb design has been improved and the ski have won just about every award since they were first introduced about a decade ago. Super light weight tip and tail while remaining stiff and stable at speeds under foot.
A classic for a reason! Really versatile all mountain ski that loves skiing groomers but is also capable in softer conditions.
These are super flexy, and are a great cruiser park ski for buttery conditions and tricks.
Handmade in Denver, these skis are tested by the toughest and developed by the best. High tip and tail rocker that provides a lot of float, mix that with it's soft core made out of wood and fiberglass and you have yourself an award-winning ski (it really did take home some awards though).
The Black Pearl is known for its stability and power, while still being quite accessible and not overly demanding. This is a ski that will handle anything you throw at it.
