Stockli has a bit of a reputation for being snobby about any speed slower than mach-schnell and making any turn shorter than a downhill course would require. Which is why testers clamored in praise that the Stormrider Motion is finally a women’s ski that does it all. They loved its powerful, turn-on-rails feel, yet it has a liveliness about it that makes it accessible to mere mortals. Its wood core layup with metal laminates gives it integrity and calm power, and vertical sidewalls give it grip a bulldog would envy. It’s versatile—effervescent even—in bumps, trees, and soft snow too, making it a great one-ski quiver for ripping women in the East. “A wide GS ski without the ego,” Gibbons said.

Strengths: Crud, Hard-Snow Integrity
