It did not take long for me to decide which ski was the best ski for me this season….and the winner is…..the Volkl Yumi. I found that this all mountain ski was light under my foot but yet offered a feeling of full control. It turned very easily with a wider turning radius. As a skier, who learned to ski on the slick slopes of Vermont, I felt like the Yumi offered the carving component I am accustomed, and yet at the same time, it can hang well on the powder days. It is a great ski for women who want to have fun on the front side and venture onto the backside every once in a while. And plus, it’s pretty!
