Best Frontside: Volkl Flair 76

Best All Mountain: Blizzard Black Pearl 88

(Women’s Specific Design) which was made to meet the performance needs of all women, regardless of their size level, and to perform in a number of various conditions. The result is a daily rider that is ready for groomers, softer snow off-piste, plus more different types of terrain.
