Lightweight freeride skis are a hot ticket item nowadays, particularly those with a wide waist, ones that feel a lot heavier underfoot than in your hand. The Vision is on the stiffer end for skis in this style, giving you more support underfoot for steeps and soft but uncertain landings.

We’d recommend the Vision 118 as a wide touring ski or a resort powder ski for people looking to cut down on fatigue and aren’t as concerned about throwing tricks.

 

To say that the Vision is Line’s answer to Atomic’s Bent Chetler wouldn’t be inaccurate, but that’s not the whole story. The Vision is constructed in a way more conducive to going straight down the hill, offering more stability and support if less “trickability.”

If you’re after more versatility, the rest of the Vision series includes offerings at 108 and 98mm alternatives.
