Building a ski that truly does it all is something we know is impossible, but the Head Venturi comes close.
Not only does this ski handle well in powder, moguls and on groomed slopes, it is also really fun to ski on. It is lovely, responsive and performs both short and long radius turns with equal ease.
The strong torsional element is balanced out with a tip rocker, producing a smooth entry into the turn with the combined performance of a grand slalom race style ski.
We would have happily kept this ski on all week: it felt very stable on-piste and lively in the chopped up snow on the sides. It will probably be a good match for instructors too.
The Venturi scored top marks consistently over all the categories, putting it right at the top of our all mountain section.
This is a true all mountain fun machine and would suit any good recreational to advanced skier looking to explore every inch of terrain available to them.
