Stockli Stormrider 95 Skis

A ski that blends piste performance with powder prowess, the Stockli Stormrider 95 is back yet again for another season, but this time it comes with a few tweaks that make it a more effective ski overall. From a construction standpoint, not all that much has changed in terms of the way these skis are built. A light wood core along with two sheets of Titanal laid overtop provide the signature smooth feel we all know and love from Stockli. By printing the graphic right into the top sheet of metal, there is a fairly significant weight savings as a result, and needless to say, it makes the skis look pretty darn cool. Stockli redesigned the tip shape of the entire Stormrider line with the intention of providing better float and better edge hold. The new Freeride Tip design is lighter and more stable and it improves float for a more effortless experience in softer snow. Other than that, we see everything that made the Stormrider 95 such a widely loved ski prior to the new design. Tip and tail rocker provide plenty of maneuverability for all-mountain skiing, while the camber underfoot ensure that you can hold a solid edge on the firm stuff. This would be a fantastic daily driver for skiers who ski a mixed bag of terrain on a daily basis as it really does provide great versatility. While it might not have quite the float of it's wider relative, the Stormrider 102, it can certainly handle a substantial amount of soft snow, no question. Ski it all with the Stockli Stormrider 95.

Hi, could I ask for some advice on ski selection? I love your on line reviews. I ski a lot in Colorado or Utah, but live in Philadelphia. I will turn 69 during this ski season, and have been skiing for 50 years. I would rate myself as advanced with good skills, if somewhat traditional style, good on any black terrain. No longer an "expert" in that I have slowed down a little and no longer aim to ski the very steep and gnarly. If there is fresh snow, I seek it out and and later look for it in trees and such. But realistically, given conditions when I go out west to ski, I likely end up as a 50/50 front/back skier. I like medium to long turns, mixing in short turns when I need to.

I have been a number of years on Nordica Enforcer 100 at 177 cm, with a radius of 16.5. I think it was their first version with any rocker, before they tweaked the tips etc. Now I want something lighter and less tiring, and a little narrower and shorter, but do value a ski which is damp, stable, and tracks well in variable conditions. I value smoothness over rebound pop, but of course would be happy with both. I am 170 cm tall, weigh 172 lbs.

My research so far has me interested in Stockli Stormrider 95 and Atomic Maverick 95Ti. I am also considering both of these at 88 cm, but am concerned about limitations when off piste with deeper snow. Also I am used to a longer ski, but think now I could be in the high 160's or low 170's.

Please advise, if you can. The price of Stockli is not an issue, as I usually keep skis for more than a few years. If I lived near the mountains I am sure I would have at least 2 pairs of skis, but I only travel with that "perfect ski for everything.". And if it really dumps I go rent a powder ski.

Last question: If I were to buy from you and have it shipped to Philadelphia, is there a safe way for you to mount the bindings if you know my boot make and sole length?

Thank you very much for reading this treatise and letting me know your advice.

Question by: Jeffrey Gerdes on Nov 16, 2021, 6:59 PM
Hi Jeff,

Thanks for your inquiry,

For starters, at your height and weight, we would advise a 170 cm length.

As far as skis go, the Stockli Stormrider 95 is an amazing ski. Its hard to really compare any other ski to a Stockli in general based on its close to hand made build, materials and technology that quite frankly, no one else in the industry employs. Your first turn on this ski will be a game changer and you will notice the difference immediately. Damp, stable and precise are the two words that define this ski, a staff favorite here at SE and certainly a one-ski quiver that defines all-mountain versatility. Although the Atomic Maverick Ti is a fine ski, there is simply no comparison.

Lastly, just send us your boot make and size and well mount them for you free of charge.

Hope this helps, think snow and go Eagles!

Thanks Jeff for his question, I am also from Philadelphia, and have a very similiar ski profile although a little younger. I am a long time skier, and as I get into my 60's admit that I find myself doing less double blacks than I used to. I like variety, groomers, powder, small to medium bumps, etc. and skiing out west this year and looking for new skis.

I have two questions. One is how would you compare the Stormrider 95 to the Nordica 100?

Second question, my sense is that almost all the ski advice I read and watch seems geared towards people looking for one ski that fits what they do. I wonder if you could give advice about a skier looking for at least two skis which seems more realistic given that real powder days can be hard to come by. I sometimes feel that an all mountain ski can be a compromise in some conditions. Or maybe not so much anymore?
I own Head Kore 87's from 2021 which I bought to ski locally last year due to Covid. I assume they will be good for on piste, groomed trails out west as well. Maybe all I need is one more ski for softer days?
Question by: Adam I. Kessler on Dec 30, 2021, 1:19 PM
Hi Adam,

Both a fine skis, but I will always give a Stockli a leg up over any other ski. I was out on the Stormrider 95 last week in terrible conditions in VT and the ski made ice and death cookies feel like corduroy under my feet. You will feel the difference on the very first turn on these skis. So precise, damp, energetic and responsive. Its worth the extra money. No other ski feels or performs like this. Any condition, any speed, any turn shape, any terrain.

Not so much anymore, a versatile, all-mountain 95-100 waisted ski can now ski just about any condition really well with the exception of that deep powder day which are certainly few and far between these days. 6-12" and the Stormrider 95 is more than capable. And when things get skied off or icy, this ski just rails on hard pack and does not flinch in mixed conditions.

Hope this helps and happy holidays!

What is the weight for the Stockli Stormrider in a 175cm length?
Question by: Allen Hu on Jan 25, 2022, 12:25 PM
1780 grams per ski as per the manufacturer.
Answer by: SkiEssentials Expert on Jan 25, 2022, 4:06 PM
Hello-CO resident and do most of my skiing here. I am looking to replace my current daily driver (Volkl Kendos) with something that will continue to be great on front side/groomers, but also perform well in softer snow and little bit of powder. I got to demo both the Stormrider 102 and 95. For me, the 95 really fit my ski style and felt better on the groomed runs. I was able to get the 95s edge-to-edge much easier than the 102. I am 6'2" and weigh 185 pounds. I rode the 102 in the 191 length (shop thought that was an ideal length for me). Next day I tried the 95, but the longest available was 184. Based on height and weight, should I go with the longer ski, or is 184 okay for my height in this ski?
Question by: Marty Potash on Feb 3, 2022, 5:23 PM
HI Marty!
It's more about preference, but based on just your stats, I'd recommend the 184 in that ski. Again, if you know you prefer longer skis, I'm not going to talk you out of the 191. Have fun!
Answer by: SkiEssentials Expert on Feb 7, 2022, 11:19 AM
I have several skis at 180 cm except for the back country skis at 177 I’m getting ready to buy the storm writer 95 trying to figure out if I need a 175 or 184. I’m 67 years old 170 pounds 5‘10“ tall and ski at 45 miles an hour top. I wouldn’t say I am in Extream Skier but I’m definitely I’m a advanced skier 50 years or so later. Want these skis for groomer days. With my friends
Question by: Craig Garrett on Feb 16, 2022, 5:12 PM
HI Craig!
I'd go with the 175. it's a pretty stable ski so I don't think there's a need to upsize. Have fun!
Answer by: SkiEssentials Expert on Feb 17, 2022, 5:30 PM
Currently ski 2021 Atomic Vantage 97 TI, 180's w/Salomon STH2 WTR 16 Bindings (keeping).
Age: 57 Height: 6'-1" Weight: 225# Ability: Advanced Type: On & Off Piste (spend more time on Piste than off)
Location: West Coast (Reno) and the slopes I frequent are Mt Rose and Lake Tahoe, NV.

Ski Blue / Black / Dbl Black runs. Stick more to a Black and then a Blue or two as a breather afterwards, etc.
Some of the runs can get a tad demanding. Trees occasionally as the mood strikes me.
I just enjoy the mountain and whichever run(s) less people are skiing.

Do you recommend the Stockli Stormrider 95 (length ?) or something more like the Volkl Mantra M6 (length ?)?
I will likely pair with Salomon STH2 MNC 16 Bindings.

I appreciate your feedback and if you would recommend something completely different please share.
Plan on purchasing next season (2022/2023).

Really enjoy the online reviews by Jeff and highly respect his thoughts/opinions!

Question by: Chris Dent on Feb 18, 2022, 11:31 PM
HI Chris!
Any time the Stormrider is on the list, it's hard to pass up. I think the 95 is the most versatile, and while it's not quite as precise as the M6, it's way more versatile, especially between faster and slower speeds. I'd go with the SR95 in the 184. Have fun!
Answer by: SkiEssentials Expert on Feb 21, 2022, 10:09 AM
hi guys
i am 57 getting back to skiing after a lot of years i am a very good intermediate skier and due to 2 titanium hips and spinal fusion my orthos say i should stay an intermediate -they really say i shouldnt ski at all but what do they know im 5'8" 190lbs still fairly athletic and strong will be skiing mostly east coast with occasional trips west and of course will hit some easier blacks the only real issue i know of is my back would benefit with equip on the lighter side i currently need all new eqiup cost is not really an issue but are these skis over and above me ?being im never going to be able to ski expert if so pleases direct me to what you would recommend thank you guys so much
Question by: mike on Feb 19, 2022, 5:05 PM
HI Mike!
We talk about the range of the Stockli skis a lot, they're able to operate at higher and lower speeds equally as well, while some stiffer and heavier skis need to be brought up to speed first. I'd look to the 88's over the 95's, mainly to make the turning a bit easier while keeping the versatility intact. I'd go with the 166 unless you know you want longer skis, in which case the 175 won't be too long. Have fun!
Answer by: SkiEssentials Expert on Feb 21, 2022, 9:10 AM
Hi there,

I'm 6'5, 195lbs. Have a racing background, feel at home when carving groomers, but also enjoy a healthy dose of mogul/powder/tree runs. I've been reading/watching your reviews all day (thank you!) and am down to three options:

SR 88 in 184
SR 95 in 184
SR 95 in 193

What would you recommened?

mixing it up with , but also skier torn between the 193cm and 184cm.
Question by: Jack on Feb 19, 2022, 11:04 PM
HI Jack!
Even though you're tall, I think the 184 will get you enough performance and stability. For a bit of added performance and versatility, I'd go with the 95 in the 184--great skis with a ton of power and potential. Have fun!
Answer by: SkiEssentials Expert on Feb 21, 2022, 8:45 AM
Hey guys,

I’m 6ft tall and 200lbs, athletic advanced skier (but not expert), and ski 50-50 on and off piste mostly in the Tahoe area. I have a few questions regarding the SR95.

1.At my size / weight / skill, I’m debating the 175 and the 184 lengths. I usually like about a 180, not sure whether to size up or down. Any advice?

2.I’ve been deciding between this ski and the Enforcer 94. I tend to bomb groomers pretty fast (sometimes 50-60mph), but looking to head off piste more where the SR95 feels like the better ski. Will the Stormrider be able to handle high speeds the same as the Enforcer?

3.Debtating mounting a Shift 13 on this ski, since I’d like to head into the backcountry more in the in the future and I’d rather future-proof the bindings than have to remount later. I’ve never used Shift bindings before, any reason that’d be a bad idea on these skis considering I’d ride them pretty hard?

Thanks for your help, and appreciate all the video reviews!
Question by: Zack on Mar 8, 2022, 2:06 AM
HI Zack!
1. For the SR, given your stats and application, I'd go with the 175.
2. The SR is lighter and operates successfully at a broader range of speeds than the Enforcer, which offers more performance at the top end of the speed spectrum. There shouldn't be much of a dropoff between that and the Stockli, as that ski is pretty darn stable at speed as well.
3. The Shift is not an alpine-specific binding, so you're never going to get the same confidence as something more resort-specific. That said, I've seen some very high-end and aggressive skiing on the Shift, so it's not like it's not all there. It's more confidence than anything, I've found.
Have fun!
Answer by: SkiEssentials Expert on Mar 8, 2022, 7:53 AM
Hello SE,
Thanks for all the good info.
I am torn between SR 95 and 88. Jackson Hole is my home mountain. I am 6’0, 180lbs and looking for a ski on the days I do not ski my SR105 (175). Leaning towards 95, but not sure if I go 175 or 184. I ski half off piste with trees and bumps mixed in so am thinking the swing weight/size of the 175 is snappier. With the narrower ski, I wonder if the longer length is needed for stability to match the 105. And with that in mind, do I drop further down to the 88. I am trying to determine the crossover point from ski to the other.

Question by: Max on Apr 2, 2022, 2:13 PM
Hi Max!
I think going with the SR 88 will give you the most separation between how your skis feel. The SR 95 may feel to similar to the 105 to justify needing them whereas the 88's will feel like a completely different ski compared to the 105. The SR has two sheets of metal so stability isn't as much of an issue so going with the shorter 175 would make the ski more maneuverable in the bumps and woods.
Answer by: Chris McClelland on Apr 5, 2022, 10:44 AM
Hi Craig. Love your reviews.

I live in Tahoe and ski the west. Advanced, 63 yrs, 6ft 3in, 215lbs.

Ski backside and hike when conditions warrant. Ski a lot of groomers when we have weeks without snow.

Go to ski is Kastle 205 BMX 189 which works well in our powder, and skied out powder.

Looking at stormrider based on your reviews… I want a faster turning ski for trees, and skied out conditions, and groomers when off piste becomes difficult.

Would length and width would you suggest ?

Thanks again! Have a great summer
Question by: Jeff Thornton on May 16, 2022, 11:16 AM
Hi Jeff!

The 184 is going to be the length to go with here I believe. The next length down is a 175 which is going to be a little to short at your height and build.

Answer by: Chris McClelland (Admin) on May 27, 2022, 1:25 PM
Hey guys,

Love the reviews, thanks.

I am returning to skiing after 15 or so years, but a former telemark only skier (backcountry and resort). I am 6'2" @ 205# and fairly athletic. Coming back with alpine gear and looking for a ski for the 22/23 season. I live in Washington and frequent Summit, Baker and touring @ Snoqualmie. I ski whenever it's available, pretty much ignoring the weather but avoiding avi conditions.

Currently skiing on elan wingman 82s to hone my carving skills and line vision 108 for deeper days and touring. I am looking for a resort only ski, but one that I can ski vary conditions (groomed, off-piste, bumps, raining) and locations (east, continental & pacific north west). I don't care about skiing the hardest lines or being the fastest, but having a big fun factor.

I have been looking at the ripstick black, stormrider, enforcer and mindbender. All in mid 90s and around 180 length.

Your suggestion would be greatly appreciated.


Question by: Ken on May 20, 2022, 11:45 AM
Hi Ken!

I think the Stormrider is far and away the best option here if you want all mountain versatility. They are surprisingly light for a duel metal laminate ski and have that signature Stockli smoothness and composure that feels almost too good to be true. It's hard not to recommend Stocklis with how well those skis are made.

Answer by: Chris McClelland (Admin) on May 27, 2022, 2:50 PM
Hi guys - first of all kudos on the awesome site. The reviews are great and super helpful. I just wanted to know your opinion in terms of the weight of the SR95 in comparison to the Enforcer 94. I have heard you guys in a recent review talking about how heavy and tiring the Enforcer is and how your legs feel after a few aggressive runs. Is the SR95 equally heavy/tiring or is it a bit more light and easy to ski? I take it that the precision is a given with Stockli but was wondering if that also translates into a more heavy and leg-crushing ski experience.
Also I am a 5 8' 170 lbs athletic 38yo male and don't know if going 175 in the SR95 will be too long compared to the 172 enforcer. I am an advanced skier not yet expert but hoping to make progress and get there.

Thank you for the help
Question by: Andres on Sep 6, 2022, 5:17 PM
Great question Andres! The enforcer can be a lot to have attached to your feet all day long. That being said it offers great security when conditions become variable. The Stormrider does offer a surprisingly light ski for its family. By laying the top sheet straight onto the ski they are able to save a considerable amount of weight. As for the length 175 is definitely at the farther end of the chart for your height however if you are someone who likes a long ski then I would say go for it. If not going down to the 166 would be were you land on the chart for rider ability and height. As a bonus it will save you some weight as well. I hope this helped you in your decision making. Cheers!
Answer by: Connor Wier (Admin) on Sep 8, 2022, 12:45 PM
Hey Guys,

Love the reviews, keep up the great work!

Just wondering what size you would recommend for me with the Stockli Stormrider 95.
I'm a 5 10' 185lb expert skier, aged 55 and still skiing hard and fast.
I ski a K2 Ikonic 84Ti in a 177 on piste and then have Volkl V-werks Katana in a 184 for back country and off piste.

I'm thinking the 184 would be the right size - What do you guys think/recommend?

Thanks, Doug
Question by: Doug on Sep 26, 2022, 1:36 PM
Hi Doug,

The 184cm Length is definitely on the longer side for your height but that being said it sounds like you are already on similar length so I would say stick with what you know. The Stormrider will provide some rocker to help activate your turns. If you have no issue on the mid 180 length then stick with it and enjoy!
Answer by: Connor Wier (Admin) on Sep 26, 2022, 2:32 PM
I've been looking for a new pair of sticks for the past few months. I thought I was all set on the SR95s based on a good amount of research and, of course, your excellent reviews. I'm now wavering because of the sizing. I currently ski Enforcer 94s at 177 as my daily driver. I'm 38yrs old, 6'0, 190lbs and ski mostly east coast with 2-3 trips out west a year. 75/25 on piste and would consider myself advanced to expert. I would feel comfortable on 184s normally but reading that these "ski long." The sizing has me reconsidering back to Enforcers and Kastles. Any sizing advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance and keep up the good work.
Question by: Brian on Nov 23, 2022, 11:12 AM
Hi Brian!

I also fall into the over 6 foot tall category of skier and am having a similar experience with my 184 SR 95's. I think it has to do with the recommended mount point putting a lot more of the ski out front than you might expect. The SR's are still very nimble, you just need to really keep on the tips and maintain forward pressure or you'll end up in the back seat. If the SR's don't sound like they're up your alley then something like the 180 Kastle FX 96 Ti might be the way to go or dropping down to the 175 SR's. Of course the fastest way to figure out if you like the SR95's or not would be to find a demo and try them out, and I think these are a pair of skis worth demoing before purchase. Hope this helps!
