2022 Volkl Blaze 106 Demo Skis w/ Marker Griffon 13 Demo Bindings
Demo skis are used skis that come with demo (adjustable) bindings. These skis have been in our retail store's demo fleet for this winter, and are now available for purchase. Demo skis generally have a range of cosmetic blemishes. Most of these skis grade in the 8 to 10 out of 10 range and are a fantastic value. If the ski doesn't pass our inspection, we will contact you. All demo skis are tuned and waxed prior to shipping.
Volkl Blaze 106 DEMO Skis with Bindings
The Volkl Blaze 106 Demo Skis with Demo Bindings will appeal to a lot of skiers who are looking for a lightweight combination to tackle any condition thrown their way. The Blaze 106 is one of the lightest freeride skis out there on the market today. It has long rocker lines, although there isn't a ton of splay. This gives you good maneuverability when riding a flatter base, while retaining a relatively long effective edge when you tip it into a turn. Volkl uses 3D Radius in a lot of their skis, but it's more pronounced in the Blaze 106 than any other ski, which allows for a ton of different turn shapes. This makes the Blaze 106 appeal to a very wide range of skier styles, abilities and types of turns. An expert will love the snappy, lightweight feel and how easy it is to flick around, while an intermediate will appreciate its forgiveness and ease of use. The Volkl Blaze 106 offers maneuverability, quickness and versatility into a lightweight package that is sure to please all types of resort skiers and styles. The Volkl Blaze 106 Demo Skis with Demo Bindings would make an ideal powder and soft snow ski for the east, or a fantastic daily driver for most western skiers.

I'm in the market to upgrade my Dynastar 2010 superpipe skis that I've been meaning to swap for many years but always say "ahhh next year"
I'm 6'2, 200lb and would say I'm on the higher end of intermediate having skiid powder sunshine, lake Louis and Quebec but reside in Ontario for majority of my skiing all with my thin pair of Dynastar...
My ski style: Trees, I'm the type that will always venture into the treeline here in our small hills of Ontario (blue mountain) and given the chance to visit out west will ski completely off piste compared to groom.
What recommendation given that I look for a ski that's playful, light weight, can do sharp turns for tree lines, has some float for the times that I do trips out west (50% resort soft top snow 40% powder and trees 10% groom) , not a charger, appreciate the playfulness with small jumps, switchriding, want to learn butters.
A ski that will still allow me to be comfortable in Ontario with more groom but can take out west is perfect
If you're looking to stay in the Dynastar family, the M-Free 99 sure checks a lot of the boxes of which you want. It's great on softer snow, amazing in bumps and trees, and is surprisingly stable for being more of a freeride ski on the groomers. It is not a charger for larger skiers (I'm 6'2 225 and I had to ease back a bit on driving the ski, but still fun!), but when you learn the balance point, it's fantastic. Rossignol Holyshred/Blackops 98, Black Crows Camox, and Nordica Unleashed 98 are also great choices in this category.
