Most Comfortable, Easiest On & Off Women's Ski Boots of 2020-2021

Nobody wants to have to ask for anybody's help to get a ski boot on or off, especially in a cold ski area parking lot--unless that's your secret tactic... And certainly serious skiers don't want to have to go in early (toddies anyone?) because their feet hurt or have gone numb from pressure or cold--unless that's your secret tactic! Well, for skiers who want to make a day of it but are tired of being consistently thwarted by demonic boots, our test team has found a batch of boots that are a breeze to deal with, and while being luxuriantly comfy and warm actually still manage to make damn good turns!
Our testers find that the easiest on, easiest off, most warm and comfortable boots are found in the medium and wide widths of the All-Mountain Traditional and All-Mountain Walk categories, pretty much period.
But while the conventional wisdom is that the wide lasted, soft flexing, so-called three-piece (aka cabrio) boot shell construction combined with a spiral wrap Intuition liner is the piece de resistance of supreme ski boot on-off ease (aka the DaleBoot VFF or Dalbello Panterra 95 W), our test team has identified several other more conventional boots that come close to matching that pinnacle of comfort, warmth and super slippery slide in and out.
In the All-Mountain Traditional group, testers love Head's Edge Lyt 100 W, the Roxa R/Fit W 95 and the Salomon S/Pro HV 90 W.
In the All-Mountain Walk group, testers found these comfort and convenience favorites: K2 B.F.C. W 90 Heat, the Roxa R/Fit Hike W 85 and the Rossignol Alltrack Pro 110 W.
