Figures recently released from the ski industry indicate skiing has reclaimed its crown as the king of snow sports and recreational activities. This return to first place in the popularity polls comes after being bumped from the throne by snowboarding near the turn of the millennium. As the rise continues, participants across the globe are exhibiting a renewed interest in skis and accessories. In light of this resurgence, spokesperson Justin Thibault of Powder7.com Ski Shop has launched the company's latest selection of — Volkl skis.
Said Thibault, "The slopes have definitely seen a decreasing number of snowboarders over the last eight years or so. While skiers have a variety of brands to choose from, Volkl is one of the most popular. Once people test out a pair of this German manufacturer's skis, they're usually hooked. Though they're geared toward the more advanced crowd, they're also suited to some transitional-level skiers. Our selection includes the latest new models as well as used ones."
Included in the newly expanded Powder7.com lineup are the 2017 Volkl Mantra skis in both 170 and 177 centimeter lengths. This model combines popular design elements from past versions with those currently exclusive to this year's release. New features include redesigned tapered tips as well as a fuller reverse camber shape than previous options. Also available are new 2015 and 2016 offerings from this brand along with used demos.
Powder7.com was initially launched under a different name in 2007 just after the crux of the snowboarding rise to fame. Two years later, the company was re-branded under its current moniker and moved to a new home base in Golden, Colorado. The company has also undergone two expansions over the last five years. As North America's foremost family-owned and operated ski shop, Powder7.com has made a number of headlines since its founding.
Concluded Thibault, "We've watched the skiing rebound unfold, and the public's love of the Volkl brand has grown right along with it. Aside from this manufacturer, we offer skiers more than 70 other top brands in the industry as well as a wide variety of gear and accessories. We also cater to those who still love snowboarding with a full array of boards and accessories. As new releases from Volkl and other brands become available, we'll continue to update our selection."
