Looking for a deal on pricey ski gear? You’ve come to the right place. Every week we curate a list of the best ski deals on the world wide web. Our criteria: We look for hot ticket items from the last few seasons that still feature relevant technology, are discounted by at least 20 percent, and are still available in multiple sizes (or at least, in the most popular size). In short, we’re here to help you save some cash for that bucket list trip this season. Happy bargain hunting!

Head Kore 87 (2021)

Available length: 189cm
Org. price: $649
Sale price: $389
Find the deal: REI

Head Kore 87

It may be last season’s model, but trust us, there’s nothing wrong with this ski. This model integrates Head’s original and award-winning construction of graphene, koroyd, caruba, and carbon. Our male testers ranked this unisex ski in the top-5 of the Frontside ski category at SKI’s 2021 gear test and called out its versatility and knack for holding an edge on hardpack. With an 87mm waist, it’s a narrow all-mountain tool that would make a great quiver-killer for skiers who primarily ski the East or stick to the groomers and bumps. Read SKI’s full 2021 review here.

"Blizzard Zero G 95"

An oldie (kind of), but a goodie, the Blizzard Zero G 95 won SKI’s prestigious Gear of the Year award in 2020 for changing the backcountry ski game. With this ski, Blizzard proved that it is possibly to make a lightweight, dedicated backcountry ski that also rips the downhill. At 1,310 grams per ski, the Zero G 95 is a stellar option for diehard backcountry skiers who know full-well that the backcountry doesn’t always deliver bottomless pow (especially when touring early season and out East).

Scarpa Maestrale RS Alpine Touring Boot

  • Available sizes: 25.5, 26.5, 29.5
  • Org. price: $795
  • Sale price: $556

Scarpa Maestrale RS Touring Boot

Not for nothing is “Maestrale” a household name in the backcountry. Scarpa’s most popular backcountry boot model has a cult-like following among backcountry enthusiasts because it was one of the first to blend uphill mobility with a stiffer flex for better downhill performance. The 2021 Maestrale RS is the culmination of that legacy, offering expert skiers a 125 flex in a three-buckle boot with 60-degree range of motion, tech inserts, a rugged Vibram outsole, and generous 101mm last. The whole package weighs 6 lbs 6.2 oz (per pair).

Armada Trace 98 (2021) + Tyrolia Attack 11 GW Binding

  • Available lengths: 156cm, 164cm, 172cm

"The 2021 Armada Trace 98 Women's All-Mountain Ski"

Our women testers raved about the Armada Trace 98 at our 2021 SKI Test, calling it one of the most playful, energetic skis in the women’s All-Mountain category. Its playful nature is courtesy of a lightweight construction and a softer flex, and this makes the Trace 98 a great off-piste tool for women who don’t want to have to work so hard for their turns. It would also make a great backcountry ski for ladies who are in it for the downs more than the ups (but don’t buy them with the Tyrolia Attack 11 GW binding, if that’s your plan).

2022 Fischer Ranger 99 Ti

It’s the dudes who tested and loved the Fischer Ranger 99 TI at SKI’s 2021 gear test, but this unisex ski is bound to excite ladies, too. The men gave this wider all-mountain ski high scores in stability at speed and versatility, though caution that it’s best suited to advanced and expert skiers who know how to drive a ski. That’s the type of skier who will get the biggest kick out of the Ranger 99 TI—both on and off the groomed. So if that’s you and this ski is still available in your length, don’t hesitate to pull the trigger. Read SKI’s full review of the 2021 Fischer Ranger 99 TI here.

Movement Session 95 Backcountry Ski

If you bounce between squeezing in dawn or dusk patrol laps at the resort and undertaking full-day backcountry missions, the Movement Session 95 might be exactly your speed. With a versatile 95mm waist width, camber underfoot and just enough rocker profile in the tip to keep you afloat in a few inches of fresh, and a lightweight caruba core that won’t make the uphill a chore, the Session 95 is a jack of all trades in the touring department. Ideal for skiers who venture into the backcountry out East or tour within the resort boundaries out West.

Atomic Backland 107 W (2021)

Backcountry ski or resort ski, or both—you decide. The women’s Atomic Backland 107 W is light and versatile enough to handle either. Ladies tested this ski in the Deep Snow category of our 2021 gear test and called out its quickness and superior flotation, courtesy of Atomic’s generous rocker profile and HRZN Tech Tip, which adds 10 percent more surface area to the ski’s tips to help keep them above the fray. It’s got enough backbone to handle some crud and groomers, but it’s happiest off-piste and playing in softer snow. Read SKI’s full review of the 2021 Atomic Backland 107 W here.
