The 2021 Völkl Blaze 106 Backcountry Ski

The built-from-scratch Blaze series from Völkl fits in the gray space between affordable freeride ski and backcountry-oriented do-it-all tool. With a proprietary multi-layer wood core and a vibration-damping suspension system strategically placed in the tip and tail, the construction of the Blaze 106 is relatively simple but very functional. This Völkl is particularly versatile in the backcountry thanks to the brand’s 3D Radius Sidecut, which keeps the ski nimble at slower speeds and in tight spaces, but is especially capable when going fast down the fall line. Best of all, with an affordable price tag, this ski is a perfect choice for skiers looking for an intro-to-backcountry ski that is also very comfortable off the chairlift.
