When you're riding up the lift, all people see is another pretty pair of pink bases; make sure you mount your helmet cam backwards, so you can relish their stunned faces as you blast through frozen roller-balls on your way to the steep and deep on the Volkl Aura Women's Ski. The Aura's a charger, with a torsion box construction and titanium sandwiching the poplar-and-ash core for an incredible combination of power, stability, and poppiness. The ash has been placed under the bindings for increased stiffness and binding hold, while there's poplar in the tips in tails for a fun, snappy ride in all sorts of snow. Which means you can put to rest once and for all the notion that pink can't be fast and rugged. Of course, what use is a powder ski that can't float' None, 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. It can be if you prefer, though.
