Go Skiing Every Day

The best all mountain skis of 2016 for everyday ripping. As in, 100 millimeters underfoot or wider

Ski resorts are getting tracked out faster than ever, thanks to high-speed chairlifts, droughts, and all the half-committed skiers who only show up when it snows six inches or more. But that’s not you. You ski every day. You know the best days can be found lapping chalky wind-buff and hitting kickers in the trees. The good news is that ski companies are making more skis than ever just for you. The pendulum swung from way too skinny to way too fat, and has now settled on the sweet spot of 108 millimeters underfoot. Of the 33 skis in this category, nine share a 108 waist. But no two are the same. Each company used that benchmark to fine-tune a ski to fit a unique persona. For hard-core directional, look to the Armada Invictus. For those who see the resort as their playground, channel the Faction Candide 3.0. For skiers heading beyond the boundary, Dynafit entered the all-mountain department with the new Chugach. One-oh-eight, it’s a mystical number in astrology and religion. It’s also the perfect number for skiers. —Julie Brown
