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 Roy
 
Hi!
Thanks for a great review on this ski. I can't decide between the BMT 90 and one of the Blizzard Zero G skis. Ideally I'm looking for a ski for multi-day ski touring/occasional ski mountaineering (type Haute Route) and for long single-day hikes from a resort or top tour chasing.
Initially I had settled on the new Zero G 105 as a compromise do-it-all ski, and then maybe later get the Zero G 85 for more ski mountaineering, if I found the 105 too weighty or wide.
However, reading about the BMT 90, it kind of seem to cover "everything." (Long stretch, I know, so I stand corrected :-))
So I wondered what you would suggest: Zero G 105 or BMT 90?
Many thanks for your thoughts!
Kind regards,
Roy

Answer from Cole P
 
Roy, thanks for reaching out. Both are sweet skis but if you are looking for versatility the Volkl BMT 90 would be my choice. The BMT is a great everyday ski, capable of powder skiing and crushes unconsolidated snow and variable terrain. The Blizzards on the other hand are better in steep terrain and demanding lines but is usually overkill for most days.

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.
