The sun finally made an appearance on day three, when the All-Mountain Front (AMF) and All-Mountain Back (AMB) skis we'd dabbled on the past two days reemerged for testers' full attention. The meatiest and most popular categories, we maintained our all-mountain breakdown from last season because of the breadth of waist widths offered.
With some overlap, AMF skis come in at 85–95 mm underfoot and are built to be able to carve and cruise into mixed snow conditions and terrain when the mood strikes. The 90–106 mm-waisted AMB category removes almost all piste limitations, and testers appeared to have no problems in the cut-up powder and even the deepest snow as new terrain openings and first tracks offered up a double dip powder day.
While you'll have to wait to get the specifics, we will share one consensus gleaned from the tester debrief: skiers are in for a hell of a 2015/2016 ski season with the gear coming their way.
