Having a skiing adventure that takes you both to the powder wonderland and the pistes of dreams? Then all mountain skis are perfect for you! Here we have listed the best all-round skis for your 2021 season.
All mountain skis are highly versatile and can be used on basically any terrain, stretching all the way from powder skiing to cruising on pistes or having fun in the park. They are ideal for anyone buying skis for the first time and anyone who wants to get the most out of a single pair of skis. If you are unsure of what skis to choose or want a pair of skis that are suitable for any terrain, these are definitely your best choice.
When it comes to all mountain skis, there are a lot of great options, however some stand out from the rest. Here we have listed the ones that we believe stand out and are the best all mountain skis for the 2020/2021 winter season.
Men's Best Overall - Salomon Stance 96
In terms of dimensions, stiffness and turn versatility, the Stance 96 hits all the sweet spots. While it's soft enough to be fun and playful, it can still charge through chop as well. The skis are narrow enough to be responsive, but also wide enough for powder days. In short, these skis have been able to hit the absolute sweet spot and are in our opinion the absolute best pair of all mountain skis for men at the moment.

Men's Best Overall Budget - Atomic Bent Chetler 100
The Atomic Bent Chetler 100 is an all mountain ski with 100mm under the foot. The width of the ski provides you with a good opportunity to be flexible, since it can ride on hard and soft snow as well as in the park. The lightweight wood core reduces weight, and the side wall structure ensures power transmission and edge grip. It also has a large tolerance for different mounts. If you choose to mount in the recommended position, you will get a ski that feels more traditional, and if you install it more forwards, you will get a ski that feels more like a park ski. No matter what you choose though, the Bent Chetler 100 will be a fun playmate.

Women's Best Overall - Salomon Stance W 94
The new Stance W 94 are a breeze of fresh air this year with their modern white design. Whilst being incredibly stable, these white beauties are also very playful and fun to ride with. What we love the most with these skis though is the blend of dependability and responsiveness, a result of the ski’s Metal Twinframe technology and Titanal construction paired with a poppy caruba/poplar core. This special blend makes the Stance W 94 an inspiring all-mountain charger that takes the strong intermediate to a new level while also soothing the hard-charging chicks of the mountain.

Women's Best Overall Budget - Völkl Yumi 84
While Völkl have been in the game for a long time, their recently updated Völkl Yumi is arguably one of their top tier skis, featuring an updated 3D side cut with a waist width of 84mm. This design helps the skis float easier in powder without sacrificing its carving potential. What is also incredible with these skis is that they are super stable and have fast edge-to-edge performance. For the intermediate skier this is a perfect ski where you can progress and gain confidence skiing all-mountain. The price is definitely also a winner!
