Völkl One Ski – 2014
This brand new ski from Völkl blurs the line between big-mountain and powder boards. Balancing the strengths of the Katana and the Shiro, the One gathers energy from a wood core and carbon backbone. Combine those with a full rocker profile and you’ve got an agile and responsive ski that is at home in deep snow and on steep, technical lines. “Really lively and springy,” said one tester. The overall consensus was that this ski is made to schmear turns down big, powdery mountains.
