Best All Mountain Skis for Women 2022-2023

best all mountain skis for women

Below we have carefully selected what we consider to be the 5 best all-mountain skis for women for the 2022-2023 season.

These one-quiver, do-it-all skis are suited to tackling a variety of terrain and styles of skiing. Some are a little more freeride or piste focused, some are a little more freestyle focused, but all have the ability to be that one ski you need for everything you do, depending on your style of skiing. 

Here are SKI Profiles' selections as the top 5 for 2023.

WOMEN'S ALL-MOUNTAIN SKI #4

Nordica Santa Ana 93 2022-2023

SKI: NORDICA SANTA ANA 93

PRICE: VIEW CURRENT PRICES AND AVAILABILITY

ALL-MOUNTAIN SKI RATING: 87.4/100

FLEX: Stiff (8/10)

WIDTH DIMENSIONS (tip/waist/tail): 125.5/93/112.5 (@165cm)

CAMBER: Tip and Tail Rocker

SHAPE: Partial Twin Tip

TURN RADIUS:  15.5m (@165cm length)

The Santa Ana 93 could be considered wide waisted Piste/Carving skis - or even narrow waisted Freeride skis, such is their personality - being speed, carving, crud crunching machines. 

Sure, you probably won't want to ski them backwards too often, but skiing forwards, they can take you anywhere and do anything.

WOMEN'S ALL-MOUNTAIN SKI #3

Armada Reliance 92 Ti 2022-2023

SKI: ARMADA RELIANCE 92 TI

PRICE: VIEW CURRENT PRICES AND AVAILABILITY

ALL-MOUNTAIN SKI RATING: 89.7/100

FLEX: Medium-Stiff (7.5/10)

WIDTH DIMENSIONS (tip/waist/tail): 130/92/116 (@164cm)

CAMBER: Tip and Tail Rocker

SHAPE: Flat Tail

TURN RADIUS: 16.5m (@164cm length)

Like the Santa Ana above, the Reliance 92 Ti are skis that are best suited to Piste and Freeride endeavors (as opposed to freestyle ones) - and they do it very well - and, apart from skiing backwards (or for hitting boxes/rails), they are super versatile.

SHAPE: Flat Tail

TURN RADIUS: 15m (@162cm length)

The Ripstick 94W have you covered everywhere on the mountain (as any good do-it-all ski should). They are super versatile - and whilst they are the kind of ski you can ski aggressively when you want to, they also have an element of playfulness to them as well.

PRICE: VIEW CURRENT PRICES AND AVAILABILITY

ALL-MOUNTAIN SKI RATING: 91.4/100

WIDTH DIMENSIONS (tip/waist/tail): 123/96/115 (@163cm)

CAMBER: Tip and Tail Rocker

SHAPE: Full Twin Tip

TURN RADIUS: 17.5m (@163cm length)

You could call the ARW park skis, you could call them all-mountain skis, you could call them all-mountain-freestyle skis. Whatever you want to call them, they are ready for any situation you throw at them. 

They are the most freestyle oriented in this list, so if you have a strong freestyle style but still want a ski that can take you anywhere and do anything, then these should be high on your list.
