Proud to be a powder snob.
Fat, fat, fat. Call it what you will, but even if you're storm-chasing in the West you won't find snow too deep for Volkl's fattest ski, the Kuro Ski. With a mammoth tip, a 132-millimeter waist, and a fully rockered profile, this ski doesn't understand the meaning of the word 'auger.' It just goes on its merry way, rocketing through mashed potatoes, flying over grabby, manky snow, and kicking up blower all over your face. With an ultralight Sensorwood core for lively rebound and durable strength and Titanal dampening power for stability, this thing can charge—it's no powder noodle. Can you ski this on hardpack? The better question is: would you want to?
- Full rocker profile
- Power/Tough Box construction
- Vertical sidewalls and internal torsion box
- Multi-layer Sensorwood vertically laminated poplar and beech core
- Titanal reinforcement

Last 2 years Titanium top sheet has killed what was the best deep powder ski, Volkl go back to the previous model with no Titanium, it has turned what was a plyful, fun ski into a plank, the pre 2012 model is still a great ski!
