Völkl Bridge (2008)
Tied for the fattest waist in the category, the brand-new Bridge could be a sign of things to come as manufacturers attempt to "bridge" the frontside capabilities of OSQE boards with the deep-powder float of big-mountain. The top scorer at our powder-engorged Snowbird test.
Bashes crud; floats and pivots on fluff; carves a trench on corduroy.
The extra width felt skittish on early-morning hardpack.
"The Bridge gives you a big, stable platform to steer from." —Craig Dillon
