Hi, I'm Beth and this is the Volkl Charisma. It's rated as an advanced-intermediate to expert, all mountain ski. I gave it 3.5 out of 5 stars. It's a nice, damp, stable, burly, strong ski, especially at high speeds, it held on beautifully. Short, medium radius turns, long radius turns; I wouldn't necessarily recommend it for a whole lot of bumps and cruds, seems like maybe a little heavy, stiff, and unforgiving. A lot of stiffness in the tail, you can get some nice snap out of this ski across the hill, and it's not terribly hard to turn, but again, a little stiff and unforgiving which is why i gave 3 out of 5 stars.
