Check out Dawgcatching's reviews over on Epic.  Particularly his 95mm waisted ski reviews and his sub 90's review (and last years 80mm and under review ).  His reviews make great sense, are very detailed and seem to really isolate the virtues of each ski and each ski category.

I love Peter's reviews,too, but dawg's focused reviews are really great.

It'd be hard to give you a list as there are so many good skis that apply to you intended terrain.   All mountain is a broad and often nebulous term.

I've read a lot of Dawgcatching's reviews and they're certainly good. It's really the specifics of something for me I'm needing help with. So many of the skiers on Epic seem to weigh a good 40-50lb more than me, so what works for them may not work so well for me. Also the ski style is relevant - some skis probably respond better to PMTS-style movements than others (and PMTS cannot be mentioned on Epic).

As to 'all-mountain', I'm really thinking of something from maybe 76mm up to 90mm waist.
