Your new quiver killer.
Sprint up the skin track with the lightweight Voile Vector Ski and begin your quest for soft, shady stashes or pinner couloirs. The win-win-win combo of a rockered tip, slightly raised tail, and traditional camber underfoot lets you lay down a solid edge on hardpack, float through the freshies, and rally through crud without breaking a sweat—after all, backcountry terrain can change with the slightest difference in aspect, time, and elevation, so you need to ready for all of it.
Designed with Voile's legendary lightweight construction, the Vector's aspen core is superlight, tough, and stable, while its cap construction reduces weight for quick climbing and easy maneuverability in tight spots. Voile topped the core off with a carbon fiberglass laminate to add some stiffness and power without making things heavy, and kept the Vector's waist wide enough for knee-deep pow and crud without sacrificing stability. Finally, the Vector's semi-wide-radius sidecut gives you high-speed stability when you're ripping down tight tree runs or charging down wide open bowls, making it a ski that you can truly take anywhere, in bounds or out.

Voile's Vector Ski is my choice on long tours and ski mountaineering missions. It is so light on the approach, and the ski is surprisingly stiffer than most of Voile's powder ski to help me ski down icy chutes and variable conditions with ease. That's not to say this ski can't handle the occasional soft stuff though. Its early rise rides over powder so you can straight shoot bowls (if you feel like it).
Great Freakin Ski
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I've skied them 5 times or so and they ski great in all conditions. Ok in resort but really shine in the powder snow. Great for backcountry skiing. Nice and light for the walk up. Durable top sheets.
What's your Vector?!

This is my favorite choice of ski for ski mountaineering/steep skiing. It's light enough to allow long link-ups and perfect for remote expeditions. The stiff tail gives you something to rely on when you need it. (if all else fails, ride the tails) And there isn't so much side-cut that they hang up or hook into the snow, they release nicely . The rockered tip allows them to smear through chokes and cut up any variability you may encounter. When your life counts on it, count on the Vector (good tag line, just made it up, Voile should use it).
