The recently updated Völkl Yumi now features a 3D sidecut, along with an 84mm waist width, designed to help it float easier in powder, without sacrificing any of its carving potential. Despite Covid kyboshing the European Ski Test last winter, our team was blessed with powder at the replacement event in Scotland, so we had a good chance to put these updates through their paces. And as promised, float is improved making this a better all-round ski.

Despite being marketed to the recreational masses and with a matching price point the Yumi exceeds expectations of stability across a range of terrain and snow conditions - just like any good all mountain ski should.

Edge to edge the Yumi is not just quick, but also maintains hold in both long and short radius turns, although at high-speed, stability can start to suffer a little with the tip becoming chattery, although this does seem to absorb some of the bumps. Altogether, this makes the Volkl Yumi a perfect ski for an intermediate to progress and gain confidence skiing the whole mountain.

There's a lot of tech for the price here. This is a ski that will help you step-up a level without breaking the bank.
