Good for Big Mountain
The all-new Gotama features both tip and tail rocker like a powder-specific, but Völkl claims it still carves a high-speed turn like a … Völkl. We were dubious. And although the Gotama doesn't transition smoothly through the entire turn like the other skis on this page, it does offer tons of hold near the apex—even on the hardest snow. In soft snow, it's loose and buoyant. "Before you invest in a powder-only ski, take a look at the Gotama," said one tester. "This is one of the best resort powder skis ever." 137/106/122; volkl.com
