SKI TYPE

ALL MOUNTAIN SKIS
Often called one-quiver skis, all-mountain models are for skiers who consider the entire mountain their playground. They’re typically designed to be capable on and off the trail—on groomers, in powder, and helping you adapt in variable conditions—but they’re not experts in any one terrain. The name is a catch-all, though, and can be misleading, because there isn’t just one type of all-mountain ski. Some all-mountain skis are more carve-oriented models, while others are friendlier versions of big-mountain freeride skis, and they may feature traditional camber or rocker profiles or a blend of the two. The key is determining what type of skiing you do most and then you’ll be in the best position to choose your ideal daily driver.

All-mountain models typically feature waist widths between 90mm and 105mm (with narrower waists performing better in hard snow) and medium sidecut with a turn radii somewhere between 16m and 20m (with shorter radii making quicker turns easier).
TOURING SKIS
Reducing weight is a primary concern when it comes to backcountry touring skis (also known as alpine touring, ski mountaineering, or randonee skis). Touring skis feature attachment points at the tip and tail for your climbing skins and, while these skis may range from ultralight models to ones similar to all-mountain or freeride skis, most models share the same focus on lightweight materials to make them more manageable during ascents. But the weight-savings comes at a cost—touring skis may not be as chatter-resistant at speed or in hard snow, and some models are more susceptible to damage than traditional resort skis are.

Touring skis range from skinny and ultralight (to make the ascent easier) to all-mountain-inspired models able to handle the variable terrain you might encounter on the descent. Determine what style of backcountry touring you do most and you’ll be better suited to finding the right width and style of ski.
