You'll enjoy your descent more than before when you hop on the Völkl Nunataq telemark/randonee skis. Full rocker and wide dimensions make them a blast in deep powder snow.
Construction features a multilayer core of poplar and beech wood that is wrapped in composite and fiberglass near the middle of the ski to add strength and snap
Vertical sidewalls combine with the wrapped core to provide excellent grip and stability while skiing hard and fast
Full rocker has a moderate height that curves up enough to float in deep powder, yet it also creates consistent contact for effective turning when the ski is put on edge
Rocker makes the skis easy to turn and a pleasure to ride in deep snow
Holes in the front of the skis function as skin attachment points for Völkl-brand skins (not included)
Base or topsheet color may vary from online photo
Non-Völkl-brand skins (sold separately) can also be used with the Nunataq skis
Please note: Volkl products can only be shipped to U.S. addresses.

Comments about Volkl Nunataq Telemark / Randonee Skis - 2011/2012:
I had wanted to get a powder ski for a while, mostly to see how much easier it made the fluffy stuff. I also wanted to get into A/T. This ski fit both requirements. My first time trying the skis was at Lake Louise in Canada. It wasn't a powder day per-se, but I wanted to see how the skis got on. They impressed me greatly. Even though they are 107 underfoot, I was able to make quick work of some bumps to start out the day, from there it was on to the 'super steeps'... lovely naming there, exactly as steep as some of the stuff back in Colorado. Anyway, the skis did very well on those runs, slashing down the initial cornice drop and making any turn I asked them to for the rest of the run. the next time I used them was on a day at Breckenridge. This time I was actually able to try them on powder, and they did not disappoint. floated like a dream on top of light Colorado powder. Took them up to the lake chutes, they were awesome there, as well. Next I used them again in powder at Vail. Different resort, same results. Unfortunately, both this year and last year have had terrible snow here in CO, so I haven't had many chances to take them out, but when I do, I have a good time. Last year and this year there has been a layer of persistant depth hoar, which has made the snow a bit too sketchy for my first backcountry trip, but the skis are light and skin really well (using technica bushwhacker boots, BD glidelite mix sts skins and marker baron bindings).
tl;dr : Great ski, fun in pow, good to great in bumps and on cruisers (keep it on edge and it rails), light as hell, great on steeps.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
