The Secret 102 returns unchanged this season to deliver the dependability at speed and edge contact we’ve come to expect from Völkl. A multi-layer wood core and Titanal frame make this ski one of the heaviest and dampest in the category, which some testers appreciated for tackling all-mountain conditions; others griped that the combo makes the ski less playful than they’d like. But in the end, all agreed the Secret 102 would make a solid all-mountain ride for athletic ladies.

STRENGTHS: Stability at Speed, Quickness

WEAKNESSES: Forgiveness, Versatility
