2014 Volkl RTM 77 Ski Reviews

Learning the mountain ski - Great ski for people still learning to improve.

Pros: Excellent carving, great grip on hardpack snow and ice. Can handle some small (brief) powder trails

Cons: Very Chatty at speed

These were my first purchased pair of skis coming from rentals, night and day improvement over rentals as expected.  Held a fantastic edge and helped me improve my carving.  The big drawback in the Volkl RTM 77 was they chattered anytime you pushed them for "need for speed" especially down any single black diamond slopes.  These skis are fine for cruising blacks on the slower side but the moment you want any type of thrill they became unstable for me.  This problem was solved when I replaced them with the RTM 81.
