Völkl Aura (2008)
Testers found the Aura highly maneuverable despite its wide waist. It moved swiftly through soft, deep snow and bounded through all but the hardest crud.
A true floater that can also hold an edge; moves swiftly through deep snow.
So light and soft it became nervous at speed—something a longer test length could have remedied.
"The Auras bite hard and always leave you smiling." —Amber Gale
