Top Men's Skis -
Nordica Soul Rider
The Nordica Soul Rider is an epic ride for the progressive skier who loves to catch air and float a three every time their skis leave the ground. The Soul Rider has a 97mm waist that makes it simple to stomp a huge trick, and dive into the ungroomed terrain with ease. These bad boys were tailor-made for the ice coast and fierce conditions.
Line Sick Day 95
the Line Sick Day 95 will make you fall back in love with skiing. A huge favorite with our staff, the Sick Day’s are the tool for those days you may feel "under the weather." Fun and playful inbounds with a 95mm waist and early rise tip keeps you surfing through the POW. These skis will make the mountain your beach and insure that every day is a sick day!
Volkl RTM 84 UVO
If you love catching some corduroy, the longtime top seller, Volkl RTM 84 UVOis the perfect ski for you. The RTM (ride the mountain) shape suits the all-mountain, everyday, trail-oriented skier. It features a raised ridge down the center of the ski, which allows the ski to be thinner, lighter, and more sensitive over the edges. The RTM is an all-time favorite with our staff.
Rossignol Sin 7
With Rossignol’s new air tip and powder turn rocker profile the Rossignol Sin 7 is a natural Eastern powder ski. Our staff loved the lightweight 98mm waist on the ski. You can rack up sidecountry laps or rip turns on firm inbounds conditions. The Sin 7 is an awesome all-around ski that will not disappoint, no matter what the conditions are.
the Volkl 90Eight is a lightweight freeride ski that allows you to get out and explore the backcountry without having to compromise on performance when skiing back down. Our staff were stoked on the 90Eight as a lighter and more playful alternative to the hard-charging Mantras.Whether you are looking for an all-round ski for both on and off piste, or a solid and reliable touring set up, the Volkl 90Eight should not be overlooked.
Top Women's Skis -
K2 Beluved 78 Ti
The K2 Beluved 78 Ti is a top shelf ski for the solid intermediate skier that loves making short to medium radius turns on the groomers. These skis make skiing hard all day a slice of soft cheese. Our staff loved ripping trails on the front side; and they promised you'd love them, too.
The Volkl Yumi ski is made for the lady shredder who skis everywhere on the mountain. The modern shape (125-83-103) excels in the trees, bumps, and steeps. The Yumi is an impressive ski and is a past winner of the ‘Tester’s Choice’ award from Skiing Magazine. These beauties are sure to get the job done as you explore your local ski resort.
Line Pandora 95
Take an award-winning shape and design from the Ski Days, drop in a women's specific core profile and flex pattern, and you've got the Line Pandora 95 The 95mm waist will hold an edge in firmer conditions making this ski super versatile. With a healthy dose of rocker in the tip it allows for superior float during those late-season hot-pow laps down Superstar. So go ahead, take on the whole mountain, and let your skis do the work.
The Volkl Aura continues to kill it on all fronts with our staff. This is an extremely versatile ski that loves to go fast and charge hard. Our staff was surprised by its performance on groomed terrain despite its fully rockered profile, although we were't surprised by its top performance in powder. The stiffest ski in this review, the Aura is meant for an expert lady skier who will have tons of fun driving it around the whole mountain.
Nordica Wild Belle
Measuring in at 88mm underfoot the Nordica Wild Belle with ‘CamRock’ technology and balsa core makes this an awesome choice for any skier, beginner to advanced. The Wild Belle will edge the off-piste snow and make perfect arcs beneath the lift effortlessly. Our staff loved the strength and shape of the ski. Featuring the new Balsa Core Technology, it has metal like performance without adding extra weight. Made in Austria with superior construction, our staff all had gigantic smiles on their faces as they carved this one all over the hill. Easy choice – go get it!
