The multitasking marvels of the gear world, all-mountain skis are designed to tackle all conditions for all skiers. With waist widths that typically range from 85 to just under 100 mm under foot, rocker technology and deep sidecuts, skis in this versatile category can carve, blast crud and float through pow with ease.
After lapping Snowbird for three days on dozens of pairs of new-for-2014 skis, these five pairs of women's All-Mountain skis stood out to testers, earning them a spot on our OnTheSnow Editors' Choice list.

Scott the Ski
This rendition of "The Ski" is a nod to a model from the early 70s, and Scott has revived it, calling it their "all in one." OnTheSnow testers gave it high marks for three categories: versatility, carving and playfulness.
K2 SuperBright 90
K2 designed the SuperBright 90 for versatility and hard-charging performance. According to our testers, they hit the mark, with many of them praising its stability and liveliness.
Rossignol Saffron 7
The new Saffron 7 in Rossignol’s new 7 Series was designed for surfy playfulness, but testers gave it high marks across the board. Lively and easy to turn thanks to the tip profile, testers deemed the ski suitable for resort or backcountry.
