Tester's Review

Damp, smooth, stable. These attributes are Völkl hallmarks. So it came as no surprise that the Aura swept the category in Stability, Crud, and Hard-Snow Grip. Scoring No. 1 in Overall Impression, however, means it’s supremely versatile too. The Aura commits to the snow instantly, twisting through tight trees and crushing crud. It’s not picky about terrain, but it does crave speed, so it’s best for girls who like to send it. Camber throughout—except for the early-rise tip—gives it a more traditional feel, with exceptional hold on hardpack. A lightweight wood core with titanium layers makes it easy yet powerful and, of course, damp, smooth, and stable.
