 Love at first turn. That’s how strongly testers felt when they clicked into the newest member of the Montero family, Stöckli’s interpretation of an all-mountain ski. The AS is the tighter-turning version (compared to the AX and AR that we tested last year). It has a lightweight wood core with a full sheet of Titanal that’s cut in an S-shape down the centre at the tip and tail to ease up the flex. Along with rocker at both ends, this gives the ski an easy-turning feel, but with all the power a full sheet of metal provides. “Bestest Goldilocks ski ever,” said Steve Acciaroli. “Not too stiff. Not too soft. I loved every minute of it.” Fellow ski instructor Chris Grover said the ski has an intuitive feel that made him a better skier. “It was like it was linked to my brain somehow—I thought, then it did! I skied it everywhere and could not find a flaw.” The relatively narrow width will have some thinking it’s a groomer ski, and it really is a thrill ride on hardpack. But in skilled hands, the Montero AS rips everywhere.
