Volkl BMT 109 Ski Volkl BMT 109 Ski
Tough decisions abound in the mountains: Keep going or turn around' Couloir jump-turning or open-face ripping' Beer or whiskey' Volkl's V-Werks BMT 109 ski won't stop these dilemmas from dogging you, but with a featherweight construction and full-blown freeride pedigree, it'll at least mean you won't have to choose between torn hip flexors and downhill terror anymore. Constructed with a multi-layer wood core bundled up inside a stiff carbon-fiber jacket, the BMT 109 weighs in at under eight pounds a pair, helping it cruise up the skintrack in a way you never thought was possible. That being said, you can rest assured it's got plenty of Volkl's aggressive DNA to slay any conditions you hit on the way down. Poplar in the tails and tips gives the ski unapologetic energy, while sturdy ash underfoot lends confidence-inspiring stability when things take a turn towards choppy chunder. A fully rockered shape complements the wood core, floating through deep bowls eagerly, as the tapered tips make it easier to throw your skis sideways and skid out loose, surfy turns. At 109mm underfoot, the BMT (Big-Mountain Touring, if you were wondering) makes a pretty strong case for its versatility. Sitting in the sweet spot between all-pow and all-mountain, 109mm is wide enough to float through fluff but slim enough to maintain an edge on alpine hardpack and the occasional frontside groomer. Short sidewalls save weight, and Volkl's Ice. Off topsheet helps prevent ice and snow from building up and weighing you down. To make pre-dawn mornings at the trailhead simpler, Volkl made sure to include a Skin Pin at the tip and a flat notch at the tail so you can slap your skins on and start the climb without any drama.

Volkl BMT 122 Ski Volkl BMT 122 Ski
With the advent of the Volkl V-Werks BMT series, the days of sacrificing touring performance for downhill stability are over. Made for skiers who like to blast up their own lines and shred them like they've been lit on fire, the V-Werks BMT (big-mountain touring, if you're into acronyms) 122 Ski comes with a featherweight multi-layer wood core comprised of poplar and ash. The poplar in the tip and tail establishes a light, playful ride, while ash underfoot brings power and stability when you're maching down a gun-barrel chute like a lunatic. Extra light was the name of the game during Volkl's engineering process, and the resulting 8. 5lb weight of a 186cm pair means your hip flexors won't be crying out in pain, nor will your rando-racing buddies be looking at each other wishing they left you back at the trailhead. New for this year, Volkl added an Ice. Off topsheet to the BMT 122, aiming to help the ski shed ice and snow faster so it doesn't weigh you down on the way up or down. A fully rockered profile, complete with slightly tapered tips, and a fat 122mm waist delineate the BMT's pow-gobbling pedigree, setting the ski up to surf, slash, and smear its way down pillowy lines all over the backcountry. Since Mother Nature can't come through with the goods every day of the season, Volkl bundles the whole package up in a light, stiff carbon-fiber jacket, with a section of short sidewall construction by the foot for increased grip and stability on harder snow. When you're standing at the trailhead getting ready before dawn, you'll appreciate the BMT 122's skin notch in the tail and Skin Pin in the tip, which allow you to attach Volkl's pre-cut, glue-free Vacuum climbing skins quickly and easily. Your touring setup's never going to be the same.

Volkl designed the BMT with a unique 3D. Ridge that tapers down to razor-like edges at the tip and tail to drastically reduce weight without compromising stability at high speeds.

Volkl VTA 88 Lite Alpine Touring Ski Volkl VTA 88 Lite Alpine Touring Ski
Distant peaks seem a little closer when you have a lightweight touring ski on your feet, and when that ski throws real descending chops into the bargain, the mountains become your playground. Making long tours seem short and hairy lines seem mellow is the name of the Volkl VTA 88 Lite Ski's game, and it comes as no surprise that it's been earning plaudits from those who value light and fast skis. Vokl built the VTA with its superlight Hybrid wood core and stiff, weight-saving Carbon Construction, so the final package weighs under 4. 5 pounds per pair. It's not a terrifyingly chattery rando toothpick; although, at 88mm underfoot, the VTA floats like an all-mountain ski but weighs about the same as many narrower boards, and it features Volkl's quickness-boosting and stability-enhancing 3D. Ridge design, which gives the ski a smooth, predictable flex and steady feel.

The flat tails come in handy while you're maneuvering up gnarly kick turns that make you wish you kept up with yoga after your free week expired, and the Ice. Off topsheets keep pesky snow buildup from dragging you down on the way up. The VTA 98 may be light, but camber underfoot and moderate tapering still let you rip turns down steep, firm snow with stability and control.
