2011 Volkl Bridge Ski


Pros: Excels in powder and crud, with surprizing agility in the bumps

Cons: Squirrely when running flat at speed

I'm a 6'-2", 175 lb. agressive, advanced level skier from the Northwest in my late 40s. I probably ski 40/60 on/off piste - more off-piste if conditions allow. My goal was to find a good one-ski quiver ski.


I just spent 2 days up at Whistler breaking in my new Bridges and I can't say enought good things about the ski. It's really a fun ski with a huge sweet spot. The ski ate up the 10" of new soft snow and crud, both in the bowls and in the trees. What really impresses me about this ski is its agility in the trees and the bumps. I have also found that the Bridges handle tight, wind-blown, hard-pack conditions quite well.


The Bridge is squirrely when running flat at high speed, but if you just put it on edge a bit it becomes much more stable. It's not the Volkl Kendo or Salomon Sentinel at speed, but the Bridge out shines both in tighter conditions, and certainly the Kendo in flotation - in my opinion.


I'm not a park skier (my pants are not baggy enough), so I can't speak to the Bridges abilities there. I haven't had the skis long enough to provide an accurate durability rating.


I demo-ed a set of 179cm Bridges and ended up purchasing the 187cm. Prior to purchasing the Bridges I demo-ed the following skis: Salomon Sentinel, Volkl Kendo, Volkl Gotama, 2012 Dynastar Legend 85 and Legend 94, and Rossignal S86s.

2011 Volkl Bridge Ski

Volkl Bridge Twin Tip Skis 2011 - The name says is all with this one. The Bridge does exactly that; bridge freestyle and freeride. Keeping the name, but entirely redefining the shape, Volkl has the Bridge dialed for skiers who require all mountain performance with a smooth, playful feel. The addition of an ELP rocker, and a 95mm waist give the Bridge a loose and maneuverable feel in soft and deep snow, while still allowing uniform contact tip to tail on hard pack. Being built around Volkl's power construction with a full Sensorwood core, the Bridge guarantees firm edge hold when lapping the park and the durability to hold up to a season of jibbing and abuse. When the whole mountain is your park, and one ski needs to be ready for it all, trust the Bridge. .
