The Volkl One Women's ski is the smallest, tamest ski in Volkl's women's freeride line, but that's a little like saying This sabre-tooth tiger is the cutest, friendliest kitty we have at the animal shelter. Although it's not the biggest pow tool out there, the One still checks in with a 116mm waist that's plenty wide enough to slay all but the snorkeliest powder days, and has a 23. 5m turning radius in the 176cm version, so you can really open it up on big, fast faces. It's fully rockered too, so you'll be able to slide, smear, and surf turns through all the deep stuff, and has a tapered tip that eases turn initiation and makes it easier to throw your skis sideways for permagrin-inducing powerslides and giant slash turns. Don't let all this powder fun make you forget that the One is still a Volkl, after all, which means tough construction and surprising frontside abilities. Like most of Volkl's freeride skis, the One has a multi-layer wood core, with ash underfoot to provide stiffness and binding retention, and poplar in the tip and tail for a lively, buttery-smooth ride and low weight. The Power/Tough Box torsion-box construction provides plenty of strength when you're torquing the ski into high-G turns, and the fiberglass-and-composite laminate gives you the strength to charge and stomp without making the One feel like a straight-lining two-by-four. As a powder-hungry everyday west-coat ski or the fat end of an east-coast quiver, the One is, well, the one.
