Ski Review 2021/2022: Ladies Allround

Pleasure skiers who don't want to strain their energy reserves unnecessarily will make the right choice with the Ladies Allround models. These are easy to turn and are fun all day long. With the comfort models, the focus is not on speed and sportiness, but on the joy of skiing.

>> To the Ski Review of the 2022/2023 season

Comfort and driving pleasure all day long

They are easy to turn, easy to ski and offer a great combination of performance, style and price. The all-round skis for women are therefore ideal for improving your own performance or simply enjoying a day of skiing. And with them, the day can last longer.

Sporting ambition tends to take a back seat with these models, but that doesn't mean that downhill runs at speed aren't possible with the all-rounders. Female skiers who find the high-performance skis too aggressive will find reliable partners in this category for a relaxed, stress-free day on the slopes.

At the 2021 WorldSkitest on the Mölltal Glacier we were also able to test the new women's models under top conditions. The ratings are correspondingly good. Two models can boast the test grade "excellent", and the rest also achieve "very good" and "good" ratings across the board.

Target group: Female beginners and pleasure-seekers

Test winner: Nordica Belle DC 72

Just behind first place is The Curv DTI WS from Fischer. The dynamic all-rounder outperforms its competitors above all in edge grip and short radii. However, it is also great fun for long carving turns. The testers were impressed by its look, too, which is why it also won the Silver Medal in the Ladies Allround category of the SnowStyle Award.

The third place on the podium goes to the S/Max W 8 from Salomon. The great strength of this comfort model is its smooth running. In addition, it is gentle on the energy reserves of its skiers and also forgives the odd mistake. This makes the S/Max W 8 ideal for any skiing day, no matter how long.
