Just took them for a spin up to 11,500 ft on Monday after the storm. The snow was excellent and the skis were perfect, at 178, especially in some tight trees. They are happy to turn. I weigh 160. Although I’m gonna need straps without the brakes on the dynafit binding.
Love my new skis! Great advice and help from the people at cripple creek! So glad to have this shop in the neighborhood.
I bought my new Voile Superchargers sight unseen, trusting the good folks at CC Backcountry. It seems everyday has brought new conditions and these sticks have performed great. It's Christmas Eve and time for more powder testing. Cheers!
I searched high and low for my perfect mid-fat touring ski. It had to be light enough, but not too light that it felt squirrely on the way down. It had to have a softer shovel for smooth turn initiation and a relatively stiff tail to snap me into the new turn. It had to have a solid but light core. It had to have a rockered tip and tail with camber in the middle for the versatility of on-mountain, off-piste, and backcountry performance. The Voile Supercharger meets all these requirements at a great value. They also build the skis to take a beating because the makes live in the Sawatch Range, USA. Go Voile!

As others have said, Cripple Creek BC does things right. The guys at the shop were super responsive and did a great job explaining different options and setups to me. The skis themselves are great. On the east coast, they performed well on semi-icy/groomed conditions and were light enough to whip around in the bumps. They were able to accommodate a discount as well for buying the skis, bindings, and skins together.
These things rip! I’ve never met a voile ski I didn’t like, and these are no different. Exrtremely capable and skiable skis. It felt like they were connected directly to my brain from the first run. Mank, pow, firm - they can handle it. Go fast, go slow, carve hard, surf the bases - they’ll be happy to oblige. I think the Objectives for fast and far missions paired with these for everything else is the perfect 2 ski quiver.
