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.

ITEM DESCRIPTION

Volkl's Aura is a big mountain ski that features big mountain performance, particularly in terms of its ability to hold an edge in just about any condition.

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.
