I rode the walls all season long last year. They were amazing from november-march. Super stable, poppy yet playful. They held up (almost) an entire season with nothing wrong, which is very impressive due to how rough I am with them. When spring slush rolled around they started to rot out from the inside and my binding pulled out. I cannot blame the skis for this though. I would highly recommend them to any intermediate/advanced skier who wants a solid ski that will hold up on a large jump or a 2 hour urban session. I will defiantly be picking up another pair of volkles for this season!
