We love the name almost as much as the ski. Voile designed this mountaineering tool to help you succeed in those alpine missions with a specific goal, AKA an Objective. While it can’t guarantee success, you can rest assured it won’t cause a failure. The impressive weight will let you take it far, on your feet or on your back. The easy-skiing nature of the construction won’t give you any hang-ups on the way down. The Objective has a rockered tip to keep you above the uglies, and also a curvy lifted tail so it releases easily at the end of turns. The neutral flex is designed to keep you centered on the ski and in control of your destiny. For ski mountaineers with lofty goals, acquiring the Objective should be the first objective.
Update for 17/18: The new Objective features black base material for lower friction and higher ski performance as well as new topsheet with more vibrant colors, but the same hard-hitting durability and easy going personality that Voile is known for.
Update 2019/20: Other than a new coat of paint, this ski remained the same as in previous years.
