Are these skis any good for park?
Yes, my friend has some (2011 or 2010) and they are pretty light, good pop. he likes them, although he isn't the most gnarly park skier it gets the job done... also they are cheap! so i'd say go for em
Depends on what your skiing level is. I would describe myself as advanced, and I didn't like them. But I could easily see them being a great beginner park ski. If you are short on cash and are looking for a cheap decent pair of sticks, go for it. But if you have a little bit more money, you can find many better skis out there.
Steeze.....what else is there??
Ski for Sarah
Brand new Salomon Mission 4 boots for trade
Theyre actually a wicked fun ski to just dick around on, jump off shit, hit rails, whatever. When i tested them at a salomon demo they were a wood core, super light and poppy ski, not sure if theyve changed the construction in the last 4 years but worth the $$$ if youre looking for a cool ski to play with.
Honestly I wouldn't go with anything salomon for park skiing if you plan on having a durable ski. I use to have the Salomon Dumonts 2 seasons ago and they completely fell apart with split edges in 1 season. They don't make durable skis if your in the park all the time like I am. But I've heard they make a good beginner ski if your just starting out in the park or don't hit rails too often.
Wrong. This was only two models of Salomon skis, the Suspect and The Dumont from that season had certain batches that cam from the factory with the "edge armor" installed too tight. Aka the edges were connected by wire weave that snapped in certain skis...but Salomon gladly replaced these skis that were affected and they corrected the mistake in manufacturing. I ski on the Dumont from that season, ski the shit out of it, and it hold up just fine. They are by no means a beginner park ski, no idea why you would say that. Clearly wrong. Salomon has been making the most diverse park / all mtn skis since the beginning of the freeski era and the first run of the 1080.
I know people that also ski park a lot like I do and have salomon park skis that fell apart. To me that says they aren't durable at all. In my OWN opinion they aren't good skis. And when you waste money on a $500 ski for just one season I wasn't too happy.
EVERY ski falls apart when you ski park....theres no difference. Whether you buy a $625 moment ski or a $550 Salomon ski, or even a $400 Line ski, they WILL fall apart eventually when you hit rails and beat them to shit. All topsheets chip, all edges crack, all bases delam. Its just a matter of time, but the fact that Salomon had a manufacturing defect in a batch of their skis does not make them a poorly made ski. All ski companies go through their defect phases.
Yes I know this because I've been skiing park for 5 years, but not EVERY ski only last one season! I've skied my Elan puzzles that I've had now from everything to park everyday to urban and they still have held up perfect for two full seasons. I can probably ski them as hard as I do now for two more seasons. That is what I call DURABILITY. I just put in my own OPINION about the brand. I'm sorry that you don't agree because that's your opinion about Salomon.
Thanks a lot for the feedback. I already own the threats I got them for Christmas and I got them super cheap black friday price so I'm only looking for them to last 2 season with half all mtn. and half park usage.
