2021-2022 Black Crows Serpo

Luke Koppa reviews the Black Crows Serpo for Blister

The 93mm-wide Serpo is another brand-new addition to the Black Crows 21/22 lineup, but it doesn’t look very much like most other ~93mm-wide all-mountain skis. Check out our First Look & Flash Review for more on this ski and our initial impressions.

2021-2022 Dynastar M-Free 99

Blister reviews the Dynastar M-Free 99.

Many of us at Blister have been big fans of the skis in Dynastar’s M-Free collection, and they’re launching a brand-new one for 21/22. Check out our First Look & Flash Review for more on the M-Free 99.

2021-2022 Volkl M6 Mantra

Luke Koppa & Jonathan Ellsworth review the Volkl M6 Mantra for Blister

The Volkl Mantra has been a reference ski in the all-mountain category for over a decade, and Volkl updated it for 21/22. Check out our full review & Deep Dive comparisons to see what’s new, what isn’t, and how this new ski compares to the current market.

2021-2022 Atomic Maverick 95 Ti

Luke Koppa and Jonathan Ellsworth review the Atomic Maverick 95 Ti for Blister

The Maverick 95 Ti is part of Atomic’s overhauled 21/22 all-mountain lineup, and it’s a notable improvement over the skis it replaces. Check out our full review & Deep Dive comparisons of this new ski.

2021-2022 Salomon QST 98

Luke Koppa & Dylan Wood review the Salomon QST 98 for Blister

The Salomon QST 99 was one of the most versatile skis we’ve reviewed in the past few years, and for 21/22, Salomon is replacing it with the new QST 98. While they’re pretty different, we think Salomon has once again made a ski that could work for a lot of people, but you should check out our full review & Deep Dive comparisons to see if the new QST 98 is the ski for you.

21/22 Shaggy’s Ahmeek 95

Luke Koppa reviews the Shaggy's Ahmeek 95 for Blister

We recently spent time on two different versions of one of Shaggy’s playful all-mountain skis: the standard Ahmeek 95, and then an extra-heavy version that features sheets of … magnesium. Check out our initial thoughts.
