If your definition of cruising begins at 30 mph, you and the AC30 will get along. Völkl touts its versatility in terms of both terrain and snow conditions, and despite its floaty width, testers were impressed by its edge-grip and confidence at speed on flat snow.  It can be ponderous in short turns and a little less playful than others in the category in powder and crud. But for swift, graceful arcs on corduroy—firm or soft—it’s hard to beat.  “Nicely balanced, with a good stable platform,” said Moffatt.
