Description


The Voilé V6 represents the epitome of versatility in a backcountry ski. It’s the go-to ski for backcountry tours in places where the snow conditions and terrain to be skied might be somewhat unknown beforehand.

Inspired by the Voilé V8, the V6 retains the wide shovel, round flex and taper of the V8, yet bundles everything up in a slimmer, lighter package. The V6 is also available in slightly-shorter lengths than the V8.

Incorporating the same layers of carbon and triaxial fiberglass into a more-narrow ski lends a snappier feel and quicker-edging trait to the V8. This feature, coupled with our beloved Voilé Hybrid Rocker, makes the V6 even more stable in a wide variety of conditions and terrain.

Backcountry skiers who put in long days will definitely appreciate the lighter weight and all-around performance of the V6 and may also regard it as their “everyday powder ski.”

My perfect powder ski
Jessica Graves
01/18/2020
I bought this ski to use exclusively in the backcountry, but have also used it for the very occasional ski area day. I use Dynafit TLT Speed Radical bindings and Scarpa Gea (women's version of the Maestrale) boots with it. I find this ski to be floaty and gentle in powder, as in I don't have to fight with it or muscle it to get it to do what I want. I just turn and it follows. It is also nicely stable on hardpack. I chose this ski over the V8 as I am slower on the uphill and thus appreciate the weight savings. It has proven its worth in BC Canada, the Tetons and all over Colorado. I have skied 3 going on 4 seasons on it, and haven't had a bad day on it yet.

Resort and the back country

I have owned the V6 for two seasons. Generally I ski my Rossignol Super 7's when at Bridger Bowl. However, on the few occasions I have skied my V6's at the resort they have performed great. I ski the 188's and they carve well on hard pack, are stiff enough to handle the crud and have great flotation in powder. I have them set up as BC skis (Dynafit Radical ST tech bindings and Scarpa Maestrale boots). The whole setup is light enough for skinning and long tours days. On the downhill I find the ski to be very intuitive when the snow conditions are variable. .You never know what you'll find in the backcountry... whatever the conditions are, the V6 addresses them well. Great ski!

Allmountain favourite

This is my go-to allmountain tool. The perfect ski if you only want to own one pair for everything. It turns easy in the trees, but it is also stabile on big mountain skiing. It might be a bit wobbly on icy bumps, but otherwise a really good choice. The weight makes it comfy on the upphill as well!

Tele mounted V6
Chris

This is my third season on the V6. I have them mounted with 22d axl telemark bindings and T2 Eco boots. I’m a 52 year old tele skier. I mostly travel to ski powder but navigate some ice when I’m skiing in the northeast. The ski is very versatile, but really shines in 6 inches plus. Not too heavy for the uphill and the nose rocker helps keep your tips above the snow. I would say it’s a snappy ski that likes to turn, and surf pow. It’s not made for ice, but it skis pretty good on hardpack, as long as it’s not bulletproof. It’s my only ski, and I really love it. My previous ski was a bd aspect 90 underfoot , didn’t give me the float that I wanted.

The first time out on my V6 skis paired to tech bindings last season I knew I had made the right decision. They are light on the uphill, nimble in the trees and feel solid on the downhill while skiing the Cascade Concrete I often find myself on. During the powder days I'm lucky to blessed with they provide enough float I don't really find myself longing for my "powder skis". I look forward to the weekends (and the occasional powder flu day!) so I can enjoy this ski even more!

Love my V6s
Mark Peever

I've used the V6 for 2 seasons and love the ski. It pops up out of powder like magic, and holds an edge on hard pack that you can trust won't slide out or chatter (unless you release your edge). One thing though - the ski is quite stiff, and so it won't want to side slip if that's how you like to turn on hard pack. It is light enough for all day touring, wide enough for deep powder, and stiff enough for charging the steeps. It will get you through crud if you have to. I use Marker Kingpin bindings and Scarpa Maestrale boots. I've skied high alpine, through trees, back country, side/slack country, east and west, on resort - quiver of one

Best ski on earth for the best snow on earth!

Voile’s “Made in Utah” stamp on the V6 skis really rings true to me whenever I tour the Wasatch’s backcountry. I, too, was made in Utah, and I’ve been skiing these mountains my entire life, and I’ve never ridden a more suitable ski for Wasatch terrain than the V6. Whether it’s a powder day on Superior, or an even powderier day where I play it safe my riding through the tighter trees in Tom’s Hill, the V6 will forever be my go-to for everyday powder riding. The waist might be a bit on the smaller side compared to most powder boards these days, but for a lighter guy like me it’s perfect. I think it’s all in that wider, rockered tip that bounces me back up to the surface no matter how hard I dive down. And unlike those wider boards, the V6 handles its own when all the soft snow gets stomped down. The V6 certainly has a penchant for powder, but it’s also remarkably intuitive when the snow is harder and the couloirs get steeper. I’m not saying it’s my first choice for hardpack and chute-shooting, as there is a bit of chatter at higher speeds, but it still rides remarkably well, so well that this ski really deserves a spot in any backcountry skier’s single-quiver collection. It’s ridiculously light, super fun in powder, and holds its own when there’s no soft snow in sight. If I had to pick one ski for the rest of my life, it would be this one. It’s just too good for a full range of conditions, especially compared to any other ski.
