Volant Machete Mc G All Mountain Ski

Posted

Pros: Great responsive Ski

Cons: Hard to find now. Not for the back seat driver.

First pair of ski's I purchased after coming back to skiing (35 year break).  Fantastic carvers and I have yet to find any thing they can't seem to handle.  They provide fantastic feedback to the feet on what is happening.  Sill use them for travel and beginning of season ski's.

Pros: Great in Deeper Snow, Decent Edge Grip on Hardpack, Good Energy Return

Cons: Flexible Tips and Tails can get bent in hard impacts, Heavy

I am an advanced/expert skier with 40+ years experience. I bought these skis predominately as a backside / bowl ski for western ski vacations and the like, but found out that I really liked them out in the east as long as it wasn't boiler plate. While the skis felt heavy in my hands, once they were strapped to my feet I did not notice the weight. These skis return a good amount of energy out of the turns, and they were a joy to ski in soft snow moguls. I had the chance to ski these skis at Lake Louise, Sunshine, all over Hokaido Japan, and New Zealand. These skis really like steeper slopes, and require a confident pilot. I still use them in 2010 (mostly as my rock skis) and still enjoy using them.
