I heard the Volkl 2 is a noodle, and i owned the new life and it was the opposite, a planky and unresponsive charger.
Do you have other skis for when there's no fresh snow? If so, why not go big and get an Armada Bubba. I havent skied them yet, but i own them and flex and feel amazing. Plus everyone that has skied them, has nothing but good things to say about them.
Armada. Moment. On3p.
