2015 Völkl One W ski review. OnTheSnow tested this ski as part of its women’s Powder Category.

A new powder “surf” ski in the women’s line, the One W features Völkl’s Power/Tough Box construction that’s borrowed from race skis, as well as vertical sidewalls for edge grip and a core blend of different wood densities wrapped in fiberglass. ELP Full Rocker means a gradual bend from tip to tail and a flex profile that’s stiffer at the tip and softer underfoot. Testers gave the 116-mm-waisted powder ski high marks for float and stability. “I never worry what’s underfoot with these sure-footed skis,” says Minneci. To that point, Rodman adds: “They feel planky on the groomers, but up in the powder, they’re surfy, maneuverable and completely stable bombing down an open face.”
