IS IT YOUR YEAR FOR NEW GEAR? by RYAN STUART, technical editor

ALL-MOUNTAIN

When most of us head to the ski hill, we don’t limit ourselves to one kind of run. That’s why the All-Mountain category is so important. These products are designed to range across the hill, from groomed to powder, moguls to mellow. But they’re not all created equal; rather they exist on a spectrum. Some are more at home on the hardpack, while others definitely prefer softer snow—and the rest fall in between. Many in the ski industry have come to realize that, no matter where your skiing interests lie, the All-Mountain rack is where you should start shopping.
