Here’s the slashy, surfy, party-down side of Völkl, a brand that is perhaps better known for buttoned-down performance. The Confession, testers’ favorite Völkl this year, has the guts for high-speed hammering, but a lighter construction plus plenty of rocker and taper to give it a lively looseness in soft snow that opens up line options and welcomes a less aggressive attack. “Has its own really enjoyable flavor,” said Schiller. “Makes the most out of really great snow conditions.”

Strengths: Stability at Speed, Crud Performance, Flotation
