I've heard this years Volkl Gotama's have a tendency to explode if the wooden sidewalls aren't sealed w/ something. Anyone have a pair of these boards that are sealed or unsealed? [img]graemlins/evilgrin.gif[/img]

I haven't noticed any problems with mine yet. Of course, we haven't had and freakin' freshies since December here in the Wasatch for me to have the chance to break them. I'll keep all posted.

Pretty sweet ski though. [img]graemlins/thumbsup.gif[/img]

I recently learned those pretty wooden sidewalls are purely cosmetic as opposed to the actual core itself, so I'm not as worried. We were in your neck of the woods for those storms last month. Ootah's the greatest!

ps. I bought my Gotama's from a dude named Walker...is that you?

Not right now. Had one about 6 A.M. though.

Yep. Cosmetic is what I've heard as well. They look nice, but I really don't care about that so much. Make the thing bomber like the rest of the line. I'll post a full review on the ski comparing/contrasting to the Explosive & G4 once I get enough days on them to make it realistic.

I have however, been able to do some things on the Gotama that I've only dreamed about on other skis. And they land from drops ohhhhh sooooo smooooov!

Those storms were nice, then the faucet got turned off. Such is January in Utah. I'm not Walker, but thanks for asking.
