Channel your inner bull.
There's something about riding the lift that really brings out the best, or worst, in people. So when those bro-brahs start running their mouth, you know exactly how to show those wanna-be hotshots what's up when you're strapped into the Volkl Women's Aura Ski. This rippin' pow ski is made for girls who like to rally, and features Volkl's legendary torsion box construction, along with two layers of titanium surrounding the poplar-and-ash core for a killer combination of power, stability, and poppiness. The ash has been placed under the bindings for increased stiffness and binding hold, while the poplar in the tips in tails lays down a fun, snappy ride in all sorts of snow.
And of course, what use is a powder ski that can't float? No use, which is why Volkl made sure the Aura was pow-proven, with a fully rockered profile and 100mm waist that's designed to make short work of big dumps, day-after chunder, and soft springtime corn. Rockered skis are easy to turn and comfortable to ride in bumpy conditions, and the Aura also incorporates a tapered tip that makes turn initiation even easier, so riding at speed doesn't have be a no-turning experience. Of course, it's a Volkl, so you get killer edging performance even without camber, and a smooth, predictable ride that makes shredding chop as easy as surfing fresh champagne.

- Q & A
Great step up from Kenjas
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
My wife loves her Volkl Auras. She's generally a black diamond skier focused on inbounds and upgraded from her beloved Volk Kenjas when we moved from the Chicago to Park City.
Although the extra 10mm on the waist were a bit to adjust to, she immediately loved the extra width on her first powder day. As she put it 'it feels like I'm just floating around, it's not even skiing."
