2015/2016 Völkl Yumi ski review. OnTheSnow tested this ski as part of its women’s Frontside Category and awarded it an Editors’ Choice honor.

“An ATV for women,” says Johnson of the Völkl Yumi. “This fun ski easily navigates between varying conditions.” Völkl’s lightweight freeski sports an 83-mm waist and tip rocker. Construction includes a relatively soft-flexing, multi-layer lightweight wood core and vertical sidewalls with a torsion box internal layup, designed for skiing stability and edge grip. Testers gave the Yumi high marks for playfulness and even high scores across the board. “This is a stable, trustworthy ski that doesn’t punish as long as effort is applied,” says Balandina.
