The skiing season 2020/2021 is almost over. If you are not in Australia or do not have planned glacier skiing, it is time to store your skis for six months until a new season. But if you plan to upgrade your ski equipment, it can help look at what ski professionals used during the season. Moreover, it is even better to see which skis brought them wins and successes. Based on our season-long following FIS World Cup results, we ranked the best ski brands in 2021.
Best Alpine Skis 2021
TOTAL PODIUM PLACES in FIS ALPINE WORLD CUP 2020/2021 & FIS ALPINE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS 2021
For split between men and ladies podium places, check Alpine Ski Brands Wins, please.
Head, Atomic, and Rossignol dominate FIS Alpine World Cup for a few years. The 2020/2021 season was not different. If you dig deeper into the result, you will see that HEAD was the best in speed disciplines (Downhill and Super G) and ROSSIGNOL was better in technical disciplines (Giant Slalom and Slalom).
We are aware that World Cup success is determined by many other factors (talent of the skier, weather, skills of skier, etc.), but skis are important enough to follow this statistic.
It does not mean that you can not ski well on your Dynastar skis at all. But if you are an excellent skier, it is worth considering what professionals like.

TOTAL PODIUM PLACES in FIS CROSS COUNTRY WORLD CUP 2020/2021 & FIS CROSS COUNTRY WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS 2021

Fischer dominates the world of professional cross-country skiing for years. However, its position is challenged by Rossignol more than ever as we saw in men’s disciplines (mainly thanks to the superb form of Alexander Bolshunov and Klaebo’s absence for a few weeks in the season).
Again, you are not doing anything wrong if you pick Atomic or Peltonen in the shop. But it is worth trying Fischer or Rossignol cross-country skis. If Fischer is good for Johannes Klaebo, it would probably be good for you too.
