Ski Review 2022/2023: All Mountain Skis

All-mountain models are the perfect companions for skiers who are mainly on the slopes, but also want to take a detour into deep snow every now and then. Changing snow conditions are no problem for the technically high-quality skis. They can handle hard slopes as well as soft powder snow. Here you can find out which all-mountain skis scored best in the 2022/2023 WorldSkitest.

Skiing fun in all conditions

With all-mountain skis you are equipped for any snow conditions. With their slightly wider waists, they offer plenty of flexibility for varied skiing days. The center widths of the tested models range from 80 to 85 millimeters. This makes them precise enough for groomed slopes, but also allows for excursions into off-piste terrain. The versatile models are also fun on firn snow in the spring or on packed slopes in the afternoon.

At this year's WorldSkitest, the all-mountain models were tested in Silvretta Montafon - by both male and female skiers. So the skis are just as suitable for women as they are for men. The test runs took place on-piste.
