Women's All-mountain front ski reviews 2020
They're designed for good to excellent riders looking for a highly efficient ski for the groomers that will also take them off-piste when the conditions are right.
When it comes to all-mountain skis, the Stöckli Stormrider series is a legendary range that just keeps racking up more points. In the women’s line, the Stormrider 85 Motion won the "Accessibility/Performance" award last season, and this year won the “Best Ski” medal.
The ski is comfortable in all types of terrain and in all conditions. Frontside performance in particular is... Read on
We already tested the Völkl Yumi last year, and it does not seem to have changed much. It demonstrates the same qualities, in particular on groomers.
