Best All-Around Women's Ski
Secret 96

See all pictures

Standing on the shoulders of giants, the Secret 96 builds upon what freeride rippers loved in the notorious and waisted 102 version of the ski in years previous.

Völkl’s flagship women’s freeride ski is notably more accessible than previous iterations, with a big uptick in versatility to boot. This more compact ski drives like all the previous versions, but offers a marked uptick in maneuverability.

Much like the M6 Mantra above, skiers love that the Secret’s stiffness scales according to its size. With more length, comes more titanal underfoot.

Variable sheet length gives the skier a better experience based on body type or ski preference, so not everyone is consigned to the same downhill missile as in previous versions.

Don’t miss the Secret 96 as a contender for the best women’s ski of 2022.
