The Good

  • Top of the line stability
  • Great edge hold
  • One of the best 'Big Mountain' skis on hard snow

The Bad

  • Lost points on float
  • Not for intermediates
THE VERDICT

You want to charge the powder? So does the Volkl Aura. This is a well-designed, well-constructed ski that will pay big dividends for accomplished skiers who want a steady wing-women when they're charging technical terrain.

FULL REVIEW

In the Aura, Volkl has created a technically sound ski for very variable terrain. How? Basically by merging  race style construction like vertical sidewalls for edge hold and durability, with Full Rocker Profile for versatility, to create a hard-charging soft snow ski that in any condition is just about guranteed to grab and hold a turn.

This ski is a flat-out winner for women who like to work the same mid to long-turn mechanics from the powder to the groomed. Soft snow floaters will be enthusiastic about getting edged up to the express lane.
