In both the Women’s and Men’s Cruisers categories, we choose skis that have one main quality - consistency. We do not look for the best performing models, nor the most accessible ones, but those that provide a balanced combination of performance, comfort, ease of use, and versatility.

The Nova 14 Ti, the flagship model of Rossignol’s Nova line, perfectly fulfills the criteria of this category.... Read on

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.

The first quality the testers mentioned was the incredible accessibility of the ski. The Yumi is an easy intuitive ski that doesn’t require special instructions or excessive effort. It is very forgiving, inspires confidence, and allows skiers to improve... Read on

The Mindbender series is K2’s new freeride and all-mountain line. The 88 Ti Alliance is a women-specific ski and is a stiffer version. It is reinforced by a Y-shaped Titanal plate, called Titanal Y-Beam by K2, which gives it an extra dose of power that the testers really liked.

"Fairly stiff," "Lively but not overly so,” K2 strikes a balance between performance and accessibility.... Read on

Winner of the "Best Ski" award last year, the Dynastar Speed Elite has been dethroned this year by a more versatile and reliable ski.

However, it is still a top-level ski and provides excellent performance thanks to its slalom DNA. Turn initiation, edge grip, and turn quality are all beyond reproach. The Speed Elite lives up to its name. It is a sporty, lively, and “responsive” ski.... Read on

The Head Super Joy is well known and appreciated by Proskilab testers for its lively character. It does not seem to have changed much since last year.

The comments poured out to describe the fun they had on this ski: "Excellent ski," "good ski," and "enjoyable to ski." They also said it has “technical potential.”

On the performance side, this ski will be a... Read on

Völkl describes the Flair SC (Slalom Carver) Carbon as “a stiff but light frontside ski, made for short turns.”

Overall performance is good, although not the best in this category. The testers appreciated the ski’s balance between performance and comfort. They said the ski is “not too stiff” but provides “good rebound.”

The ski is “easy and playful,”... Read on

The Kästle DX73 W in the Vogue series is a women’s version of the men’s DX73. The testers found the ski too short (156 cm) and would have liked to have a few extra centimeters of edge length.

Without a doubt, accessibility is the best quality of this ski. It is really amazing. The testers called it “easy to handle.” The DX73 W doesn’t need any special operating instructions.... Read on

The amazing Head Kore 93, winner of the "Best Ski" award last year in the men’s category, is quickly becoming one of the benchmarks in the all-mountain ski market. This year, Head has brought out a women’s version: The Kore 93 W.

Its construction is the same as the men’s model. It is interesting to note that Head’s approach is fairly different from other brands. The competitors... Read on

The Anthem series is K2’s new all-mountain frontside women’s series. The Anthem 80 is the second widest ski in the range.

Evidently, it is a soft ski, with all the advantages and disadvantages that come with that.

It is easy to flex making it a very accessible ski, very easy to turn, forgiving, and comfortable in skidded turns. Its lightness is an added bonus.

However, you feel... Read on

While the Rossignol Experience 94 Ti won a "Best Ski" award in the men’s category, our female testers found the Experience 88 Ti W pretty demanding.

Overall performance is good. The ski is stable, grips well, and is particularly comfortable in short turns where it provides great rebound.

The Experience 88 Ti W is pretty stiff for a women’s ski and seems similar to the men’s... Read on

The comments we made about this ski are similar to those we made for the Rossignol Experience 88 Ti W. Like the Rossignol Experience 88 Ti W, the Dynastar Intense 4x4 82 Pro seemed very similar to the men’s version, the Speed Zone 4x4 Pro. Once again, the sidecut is the same and the weight is similar.

While the male testers found their model fairly soft, our female testers found the women’s version... Read on
