Women’s All-Mountain Ski Gear

Does your ski wardrobe need a refresh? Is some of your well-loved gear truly past it and needs replacing? Are you thinking of buying your first set of All-Mountain skis or ski boots this winter? 

We’ve put together the ultimate All-Mountain ski fit, from skis and boots, to jackets, mid-layers, goggles, gloves and helmet. This kit is suited to anyone from beginner skiers through to intermediate skiers (and beyond).

If you’re a true beginner we recommend renting skis and boots the first few times you go skiing. But for intermediates looking to buy their first All-Mountain ski and boot set up, look no further…

Völkl Blaze 82 W £540 (without bindings)

Multi-shaded pink All-Mountain skis, Völkl Blaze 82 W

Lengths: 159, 166, 173, 180cm  
Radius:13.0m @166cm  
Dimensions: 125-82-107mm 
Weight per ski: 1,440g @ 166cm without binding

So much fun on the piste, they also help you out when taking on tighter runs through the trees and challenging yourself with the odd bump run. They work well with a regular downhill binding, but for extra versatility we’d suggest mounting them with a hybrid binding you can use for touring too. The Völkl Blaze 82 are ideal for intermediate skiers wanting to get into off-piste skiing. volkl.com

Tecnica Cochise HV 95 W DYN GW – £535

Tecnica Cochise green All-Mountain ski boot
Tecnica Cochise HV 95 W DYN GW

Sizes (MP): 23.0-27.5 
Walk mode: Y, 50°
Volume: High  
Last (mm): 102  
Flex: 95
Weight (per boot): 1,660g (24.5MP)

Ideal for skiers looking for a performance-focussed downhill-orientated boot that makes heading uphill easier. The rear of the cuff is bolstered with carbon so you get plenty of skiing performance with the reassurance that the ski/walk switch is locked securely into downhill mode. When testing the Cochise HV boots, we found the reaction of the cuff helps in a variety of terrain, making this an awesome all-mountain ally. blizzard-tecnica.com

It looks so much better than the old Factory Pilot. Mips takes cares of rotational impact worries, with a top mounted venting control and a BOA dial for a cinched in fit. It’s super comfy and we didn’t really notice it when skiing. There are loads of colour options too. oakley.com
