2018 Volkl 100Eight Ski Review: Predictability Reigns Supreme

Despite it's full rocker, no camber design, the 2018 Volkl 100Eight isn't a ski for those who like to get wishy-washy in the powder. Instead, it utilizes Volkl's new 3D Glass construction to create a powder skis that's torsionally stiff and incredibly stable at speed. This torsional stiffness ultimately leads to an even better trait: predictability. Overall, that was the one word that our ski tester, Jeff, used to describe the ski after having the opportunity to put it to the test one powdery morning at Stowe. Find out more right here, in this review of the 2018 Volkl 100Eight!

2018 Salomon QST 118 Ski Review: Pure Powder Performance

When Stowe received over 50" of powder last week, we knew exactly what we had to do: put the 2018 Salomon QST 118 to the test. With a waist width of 118mm and a healthy amount of tip and tail rocker, these skis were undoubtedly built for powder. It's a fact that we confirmed over the course of two days in which we were able to test them in untouched powder, the trees, and chopped up trail snow. Spolier alert: these things killed it. Find out more in this all new review of the 2018 Salomon QST 118.
