Almost as long as there have been skiers, there have been Volkl skis. The company is just a few years shy of its 100th birthday and is still going strong. The star of their current front side all mountain collection, the Volkl RTM 84 ski is the pinnacle of the line offering a great all mountain ride. The company has diversified, and now offers clothing in addition to skis. A Volkl insulated ski jacket in a classic cut will easily take you from the slopes to the school run.
