2005 Volkl 320 Energy Ski


Pros: has taken a lot of hits, great on many different mountains, stiff

Cons: heavy, not the best on icy snow

I got this ski a long time ago... before that I was on an Atomic something...

This ski has been with me for many years as my ski level improved... but the past two years i feel like i can ski better if i had better skis.

I am short and light weight... and was barely 5'  and 100lbs when i got these. I preferred longer, and hoped i would grow into them. These are 163cm.   I enjoyed how sharp they would turn and respond. a few years ago i got better boots to go with the skis.  They have taken the brunt of out of bounds skiing and spring skiing in the PNW.... but sadly the base and the blades are too worn out now.  Skiing on icy snow is now a struggle.

It was a great intermediate ski.  I find myself wanting something a little shorter only to make tree skiing easier.  I love these skis.


Pros: Easy turns

Cons: Not fast enough

These are the first and only pair of skis I own.


I started skiing 5 years ago at the age of 33. Having started late and being the father of 3 kids below the age of 10, I wasn't about to splurge on ski equipment or take risks on the trail.


After sliding all over the place with blunt edges on rental skis for the first two years, I decided to lease these for the season. I noticed the difference right away. I was finally doing something that could be passed off as a sorry excuse for skiing!!! So I ended up buying them at the end of the season.


I taught myself to ski parallel on them and now I'm trying to teach myself carving with limited success. I've ventured some double-diamond trails on these skis and they help up pretty good.


If I get any good, I'll probably buy newer and more improved equipment. But these skis will always have a special place in my heart and my already-cluttered garage.
