2015/2016 Völkl 100Eight W ski review. OnTheSnow tested this ski as part of its women’s Powder Category and awarded it an Editors’ Choice honor.

Völkl launches a new women’s powder ski for 2015/16, and its entry into the test was met with top honors: Testers awarded the 100Eight W (108 mm underfoot) high scores across the board with highest for float and stability. “It’s an awesome, predictable ski for the pow shredder,” says Muecke. “Once it tips, it rips, and it’s an amazing floater.” The construction features 3D.Ridge Technology—a raised central “ridge” surrounded by a remarkably thin multi-layer wood core designed to cut weight without sacrificing stability and performance. The 100Eight has a full rocker profile, tapered tip and a flat tail design. “This is my flotation device of choice,” says Fried. “It combines rock-solid stability with poppy playfulness.”
