Voile Charger Backcountry skis win Backcountry Magazine's 2011 Editor's Choice


In 2010 Voile introduced the award winning Voile Drifter ski design, providing skiers with a whole new skiing experience.

Now you can get that same experience in a slimmer, more nimble package.

Introducing Voile Charger skis, a Backcountry Magazines' 2011 Editors' Choice.

From Backcountry Magazine 2011 Gear Guide:

Sharing the same heavily rockered tip, lightweight aspen core construction, and powder surfing instincts as its big brother, the Drifter, the new Charger has a slimmer, more skintrack friendly shape. Though charged up by its agility and smearability, some testers received too much of a jolt in mixed and firm conditions. Low marks on hardpack and in chunder, however, were tempered by accolades for energy, playfulness, stability, and versatility in powder. Testers raved, saying it was "love at first smear," "totally stable in the trees" and a "powder technician."

+ "Run as fast as you want, then dump speed on a dime. FUN bc powder ski."

- "Like a butter knife, these don't cut, they prefer to smear."

= A powder-eating, super-charged touring board that's also a great value.

do you know if this ski has the screw inserts like the Voile Insane?

We no longer manufacture skis with pre-drilled inserts. All ski models are "flat deck" and can be mounted with either telemark or AT bindings.
