I got to try out my new Volkl Karmas on Friday at Killington. They came as advertised. Stable at high speeds, they lay out on edge well and hold completely through turns. I felt like I could edge so hard that my knees were about to hit the ground. I felt like a downhill racer. They can also skid-turn, although it was a bit tricky at first. Eventually I was successful taking them through bumps, and even skiing backwards a little, although it’s scary.
