Long admired for its reliable performance in the not-so-pretty conditions that ski mountaineers encounter in the high alpine, the BMT 94 was Volkl's idea of a versatile ski that was stable at speed, but precise and confident when edging. Blending the reverse-camber profile of new-school girthy powder skis with Volkl's signature carving-ski personality, the BMT 94 brought a new sashimi-knife personality to the mid-fat category. With the new BMT 90, Volkl is dialing back the full-rocker trendiness to add a smidge of camber under the foot and keep skinning performance at a maximum. Far from losing its hard-charging roots, though, the BMT 90 boasts a damp, woodcore feel in chopped-up powder runs and has enough rocker to ride out even the mankiest of mank. Plenty of effective edge helps to balance out the quick-pivoting feel and stabilize the ski at speed, keeping Volkl's diehard alpine fan base happy and confident on their newest offering.

  • Tip and tail rocker shape isn't quite "full-rocker," but it's close, and offers many of the same advantages without compromising skinning performance.
  • Volkl's sophisticated carbon layup, the 3D Ridge, stiffens the BMT 90 without adding weight.
  • Rounded tip and notched tail means you can use traditional skin fixation points.
  • Long effective edge provides solid hard-snow performance for a mid-fat ski.
  • Volkl says this is a, "touring ski with big-mountain performance." We would say this is a big-mountain ski with touring performance.

Question from Michael M
Can I mount any binding on this ski, such as a Salomon MTN? Or is Volkl still technically recommending it fit in the H-shaped pattern from the older BMT skis?
Answer from TSB
Hey Michael, unfortunately Volkl has retained their infamous H-pattern for the new BMT 90, so anything that's outside of the Marker/Volkl family is "mount at your own risk." Fortunately, Marker has the Alpinist binding, which would be a rough competitor to the MTN binding you mention and would mate with the H-pattern.
