I ski probably 60% resort and 40% backcountry and I wanted a ski that would excel at both. The Voile V6 really surprised me with how responsive it is when I initiate a turn - it is smooth and intuitive. Also, the ski has a good amount of camber underfoot, which was a big draw for me, because I find that skis with more camber have a lot more energy and that makes for fun skiing. The V6 is so good in powder conditions but when the powder gets tracked out and variable, it still handles strong and tracks straight. These aren't the lightest skis, but they're not heavy either. I'd consider them perfect for anyone wanting to get just one ski to do everything. Highly recommend.
