You love fresh powder turns and you're not afraid to earn 'em. Tackle the steep and deep with Volkl's new VTA 108 Alpine Touring Skis on your feet. The VTA 108 is the fattest option in Volkl's newly expanded VTA collection this season, with a 108mm waist that's just begging for a good pow slash. The VTA series represents the ultralight end of the spectrum among Volkl's fleet of touring skis--featuring Volkl's VTA Superlite Outline, carbon tip, and Tourlite wood core, these sticks fly up the hill as fast as you can say skin track. Volkl's signature Ice. Off topsheet provides a solution to frustrating snow buildup while you're skinning in deep snow, with an anti-icing surface structure that sheds snow buildup. The flat tail makes it easy to wedge into the snow during tricky kick turns, and with the Skin Pin system at the shovel of your ski, your skins can be securely fastened quickly and efficiently. Volkl put a lot of thought into uphill performance with the VTA series, but that don't be afraid to let it rip on the descent. The wood core offers a consistent flex and a playful feel, with a moderate taper that handles variable snow just as well as feather-light blower.
