Brand spanking new for this winter, the Voile V6 Ski is a smaller, lighter, and nimble of version of Voile's acclaimed V8, with the same construction, shape, and design, but a narrower waist that makes it more of an everyday ski than a pure pow charger. It's lighter than the V8, which makes it a great choice for longer tours, and its narrower shape gives it better edge grip when you run into variable snow or hit the resort for a day of crushing groomers. It can still handle plenty of powder, though, thanks to the wide tip and tapered tail that let you float, smear, and pivot through the deep. The light and lively aspen core is laminated with fiberglass and carbon to serve up plenty of stiffness without extra weight, and the tail is slightly raised to give you a little playfulness without giving up the ski's solid edge hold and tight sidecut radius. Truly a backcountry quiver of one, the V6 is down to be your companion on every winter expedition.
