The Confession feels like an old college buddy who's moved back to town along with his questionable influences: You know he's probably not that good for you, but damn he's fun to party with. Combining metal, vertical sidewalls, camber underfoot, slight rocker, and a flat tail, this big-kid ski harkens back to the Volkls of old. The traditional shape allows you to make big turns in big terrain, the stiff flex powers through any and all crud with none of the all-too-familiar chatter in most modern skis, and the long effective edge allows you to hold tightly on hard snow. "These skis rocked my world," says Noah Sell from Ski AK in Anchorage. "Point 'em straight and never worry about a thing again. I missed the words 'camber' and 'Volkl' in the same sentence."
