Keep the snow deep and the stoke high.

Burly enough to rip spines in Alaska and light enough to conquer springtime objectives in the Rockies, Voile's V8 Ski is a powder-hungry touring machine. With all-mountain capabilities to keep you entertained all day long, you'll feel like a little kid in a candy shop with these sticks on your feet. The V8's waist ranges from 107 to a portly 119mm depending on your preferred ski length, making this ski a serious weapon for hot lapping pow fields and dropping stacks of pillows.

Although the V8 rips it to oblivion on the descent, you won't be dragging deadweight up the hill—a pair of the 176s weighs in at just 7lb 9oz, so you'll be gliding up the skin track with a few laps still in you by the end of the day. The light weight is thanks to an aspen wood core, reinforced by a carbon fiberglass laminate to make sure that your ultra-light ski doesn't share the same properties as a wet noodle. For such a fat ski the V8 has a tight turn radius, giving you a snappy responsiveness you'll be stoked on when you end up in high-consequence terrain.

Dad Loves 'Em

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

My pops has been a fan of Voile skis for quite a few years now- he's got a good quiver going. He decided to make the switch from tele to AT this year and decided he wanted a pair of the V8s. So we got him a pair for Christmas, and he's been super excited on them! They're a great shape and width for a variety of conditions- so far, so good here in the Wasatch. They are also SUPER light. I couldn't believe it when I picked them up!
In the end, so far I've only heard good things about this ski- great light ripping choice for the backcountry.

Great Ski

I love these skis for the backcountry. Voile told me the only change in the 18-19 model is top sheet color. I'm a 6' guy and have a 165 because I like to ski the trees. I've got about 50 days in Utah's Wasatch range on those and love them. They float well and handle luge run skinners no problem. I've also skied them on spring corn of the Sierra and they did great. I liked them so much I got 176 for powder days and when the ride out is easy. I've skied the 176 a few times this year and they have been great just a little better with more float.

An all time favorite

I have skied on hundreds of skis as a ski tester, athlete etc over the years, this is my all time favorite. Traditional camber under foot gives the ski a poppy feeling and exponentially increases its versatility. Early rise in the tip that is impossible to dive. Versatile, fun, and slarvy.

Hi Weston,

Where did you mount your bindings? I've been hearing the factory line is pretty far forward but supposedly works for the geometry. Others seem to be mounting it further back. Would love to hear your thoughts.
