I hear quite often that the Volkl line is stiffer than most. I am high end intermediate skier and currently have and LOVE the Volkl Violas. Are the Violas stiff to people and they just don't seem it to me. Just curious. I am very interested in upgrading my skis this year so the Kenja is at the top of my list so I am anxiously reading this thread.

Kenja or Nordica Belle for a chubby intermediate skier? - Page 2
Gear mentioned in this thread:
I also ski with a level 9 small woman 5FT 110lbs who loves her 2013 Kenja's. She even had them in 156cm. One of the ski house mates a tall girl going for her PSIA III has them in 170cm and also loves them.
Buy them and take a few lessons on them.
Read the ratings in ski magazine.
Thanks. I have done a ton of reading on them and so far I think they are the ski for me. On paper they are fabulous and I love the fact that they are camber through the body and rockered in the tip(s). I just have this idea it will be my ginsu knife carving machine that will advance my abilities to the next level. Now I just need to try the ski. My local mountain demos it and I plan to take a couple lessons. I am currently a level 5 skier.
