Each year, right about now, we get lots of enquiries asking what season’s hottest skis are.

We’ve showcased five men’s skis to cover all standards; from the beginner & intermediate skier to the advanced racer. (And keep an eye out for our next blog post very soon - with our top 5 women’s skis.
The Rossignol Experience 80Ci
The Rossignol Experience 80 is shaped for performance yet designed to give you freedom to ski all-terrain from icy crud to light powder. You have the perfect blend of on trail carving performance, yet a lively freeride feel that just makes this a great all-round ski for men.
The 80mm waist and balanced rocker profile keep you turning through mixed snow conditions, while the race-inspired construction provides immediate response and stability, so you can explore with confidence.
The Blizzard Brahma 82
The Blizzard Brahma 82 is the go-to ski on days when the cold temps and dry spells make for firm snow conditions.
A side cut specifically designed to make big and small turns alike and a reduced rocker profile make them easy to ski. The Blizzard Carbon Flipcore technology with two sheets of metal smooths out the ride and allows for better edge control and a nice carve of the ski.
A great all-mountain ski.
The K2 Mindbenders 85
A great all-round ski that will allow you to ride the groom runs, break out beyond into the off-piste and ski the odd bump as well. This ski is lightweight, forgiving and intuitive to ski. Just get on and they’ll drive themselves.
K2 has added a 30° angle to the sidewall in the Hybritech construction. The SlantWall increases the K2 Minderbenders 85’s agility and responsiveness while maintaining an accurate ride and power to the skier.
An awesome ski for both men and women intermediate skiers looking for versatility
The Salomon Stance 96
The Stance 96 is a weapon of choice for all-mountain skiing! This ski is super versatile; you'll be the king of the mountain, charging down the hard pack and crud with plenty of ski to keep you floating through the clouds.
A full aspen core construction delivering unrivalled strength-to-weight ratio, a butter-smooth ride and powerful edge to edge turns with loads of pop.
And ideal ski for those liking bigger GS-style turns.
The Atomic Maverick 88Ti
Variety is the spice of life and the Atomic Maverick 88ti are the go-to skis for every skier who wants to keep exploring right across the mountain.
This ski is smooth and intuitive to ski. It has a nice balance of stability and a forgiving flex throughout the length of the ski.
A versatile, all mountain ski.
