All types of skiers, at all abilities, can find a great fit and performance match within the women's All-Mountain Category—so long as they're not planning to stray far from the chairlift. The women's All-Mountain ski boot as we've defined it for this year's test is characterized by an upper cuff that does not release for hiking or walking.

This is the ski boot as most of us know it, made for ripping turns on area, accommodating a variety of different skiing styles as well as foot and leg shapes. All-Mountain boots typically have grippy, replaceable soles and a more flexible, shock-absorbing internal bootboard than do the Frontside Category boots, and All-Mountain Category boot liners offer more creature comforts and insulating laminates. 

Our women testers tried narrows, mediums and wides at a variety of stiffnesses within this largest of categories. From race-like low volume fits to luxuriantly wide and cushioned caresses, the women's All-Mountain Category offers something for every skier, fit wise; and from hammer-down all-day charging to blue sky cruising, there's a performance match in here, too. Note the width that best suits your foot and leg and the stiffness that best suits your performance needs, and focus your model search there. Once you've had a chance to try on some of your favorites, you might revise your search parameters.
