FULL REVIEW

This a sweet ski. It’s manueverable, damp, and versatile enough to tackle the groomed beneath the chairs, then get out and arc through both the trees and bumps. Very easy to steer, with quick edge-to-edge carving just about anytime you need it, Head’s Venturi 95 scored among the top of the all-mountain class.

One knock against this ski is the overall dampness. Some skiers want a more lively feel underfoot. The other is that it has a relatively small sweet spot, which means you have to be that much more on your game to get the most out of it. Get that dialed, and it has super response. If you know your way around an edge, and like to ski all the lift-served terrain at your hill, East or West Coast the Venturi should get a long look.
