Kenja dig it?

The Volkl Women's Kenja Ski is a fun-loving ski that indulges in occasional powder and relishes ripping down groomers, no matter the number of diamonds on the trail sign. A skinnier version of the more powder-hungry Aura, the Kenja checks in at 87mm underfoot, making it significantly friendlier on the hardpack than its big sister without giving up the float necessary to enjoy the freshies. Volkl made sure to include a rockered tip, too, which will smooth out any bumpy rides, surf through powder, and make turn initiation a snap. 

Although it's buttery smooth to ski, the Kenja has the chops to open things up a little, courtesy of a titanium laminate sandwiched to the multi-layer ash and poplar core. The ash is located underfoot to improve torsional stiffness, while the light, flexible poplar provides pop and playfulness in the tip and tail. Volkl built the Kenja with its torsion box Power Construction, too, which utilizes traditional vertical sidewalls for durability and serious grip when you're looking to rail some turns, helping make the Kenja one of the smoothest, most versatile skis out there.

LOVE THIS SKI!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I was looking for a new ski after I grew out of my beginner skis and I'd read nothing but amazing reviews of the Kenja. However, I was afraid of its reputation and feared it was too much ski for me . I am 5'6 and 175lbs. This is am amazing ski. What I love about this ski is its versatility. I have yet to have the Kenjas in conditions that they couldn't handle. Icy, hardpack, wet snow, powder, loose granular, death cookies, you name it and the Kenja rocks it.

This ski is fairly wide and for being so wide handles the ice and hardpack like a champ. I think it handles ice and hardpack better than most skis in its class. This is a heavy ski with metal in it so its not an easy ski to ski. If you are too much of an early intermediate this ski will ski you. I think I was a solid enough of an intermediate that was able to take the ski and grow with it. This ski has made me a better skier. Its not a lazy kinda ski, you have to ride the tips and drive it. The faster you ski the more stable it feels.

I've yet to have this ski in conditions it couldn't handle. I have a narrower ski for the iciest of days but the Kenja is my weapon of choice on most days. I absolutely love these skis and would recommend them to anyone who's a solid intermediate who really wants a solid ski that can handle any condition.

LOVE THIS SKI!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I demoed this ski for a full day over last weekend and fell in love. I took a lesson and just worked on techniques. Learned some awesome tricks to ski better. I believe i found these skis sweet spot. They aren't a fan of tight turns. They will do it but they much prefer wider sweeping turns. The Kenjas were amazing everywhere on the mountain; hard packed, a little powder and all in between. I didnt want to stop skiing despite the cold. These skis are so fun and playful and lets not mention they dig into the hard packed frozen cuordoroy snow like i have never experienced. I am trying to decide what size to get the 156 or the 163cm. I am 5'6" and 175lbs and this dictates I should be in a ski in the 160s but I feel that's too long for me. I was very comfortable in a 156cm on the kenja, felt very stable and not an ounce of chatter. The gals on this other forum all ski longer skis and said I need to be in the 160s. If you look at me with these skis they come up to the mid part of my face so I think they are fine. One of the gals said the length is good but my weight dictates I should be on a longer ski. I do plan to lose weight so does that mean if I do the 156cm will be fine. Or is at the end of the day whatever I am comfortable on. I just don't want to get too big for my britches and get a ski longer than I need.

Whatever you are most comfortable with will be fine. The longer ski will not be as easy to turn but will be more stable at high speeds. The inverse is true for the shorter ski. If you did not feel any chatter on a 156, I do not see any reason to bump up to to the next size
