Rad enough for a man, but PH-balanced for a woman, Armada's VJJ Women's Ski--yeah, vuh-jay-jay--serves up the game-changing hybrid-rocker shape for the pow-slayin' ladies out there. When the snow gods hear your prayers, you can grab this plank and float the heavenly deep. If your prayers fall on deaf ears, the VJJ will gladly beat the hardpack into submission as well.
The VJJ was inspired by the Men's JJ, so you know that it's versatile and well crafted. Armada’s EST Freeride Rocker features the perfect blend of rocker and positive underfoot camber. The Hybrid Ultralight Core is made from lightweight wood with an exceptionally high strength-to-weight ratio, giving you the performance you demand without the extra weight. Armada’s special Laminate Matrix utilizes directional fiberglass layering to dictate torsional rigidity and flex pattern, ensuring you will be the boss of your skis at high speeds. The AR50 Sidewall sports a cap construction in the tip and tail with a classic sidewall underfoot, providing the perfect blend of performance, durability, and low swing weight. There's an ideal balace of wide-enough waist (115mm) for deep pow, and speed with the Comp Series Base, Armada's fastest.
Armada VJJ Ski - Women's: Almost 6 years ago a very talented and witty Christy Sports employee asked an Armada representative. “If you were to make a ladies version of the JJ what would you call it?” Go ahead and snincker, VJJ is just plain funny. It’s like fart jokes. Some may be sensitive about the name, please remember Oprah Winfrey coined it, Ellen DeGeneres adopted it, Matt Lauer and previously Meredith Vieira have said it on NBCs Today Show. The VJJ is the most versatile women’s specific powder ski on the market. It’s equally as impressive as the JJ and shares same dimensions, however just a little lighter with similar flex.
Armada VJJ Ski - Women's: Flawless. You’re the girl who has no problem leading the pack, the girl who’s ready for the next lap while the others are still catching their breath. But when the snow got deep there wasn’t a proper tool for you. Stuck with either over-sized men’s skis or under-sized women’s versions, no superior women’s backcountry rockered ski ever existed. And for that purpose Armada's stoked to introduce the VJJ. The Armada JJ Ski is women’s specific version of the original JJ utilizing the patented EST Freeride Rocker but with all the requirements to validate it with the ladies.

I've tested quite a few skis in my day and nothing gives me more satisfaction than the VJJ. It's versatile, it's fun, it's poppy, it's tough enough for a woman.
I think the width is a nice compromise for an everyday or pow-centric skier for conditions out west. This will be my 3rd winter on VJJs and I couldn't be happier. I had to replace my first pair because they were looking a little dodgy after 150 days of hard use over 2 low snow years.
The VJJ performs decently on groomers, phenomenal in powder, awesome off drops, decent at high speed. It's responsive with a low swing weight.
I sized up. I am an advanced skier at 5'3" and 120 lbs went with the 175 and couldn't be happier.
