Why isn't salomon like it was a few years ago? Is it because many Salomon pro skiers switched to another company? I remember when Salomon Freeski Tv dropped the sickest edits and everyone used to have salomon skis. And also, back a few years ago, Salomon used to make over 4 different park skis, now they onlymake 2 different ones. Why?
they are just as cool. your just starting to follow the internet bandwagon of buying from underground companies because you think your too gangster for salomon... which is probably hurting compainies like salomon, which is probably why theyre making less park skis.. less profitable area=less made
Salomon is one of the hottest snowboard brands right now. No joke. Snowboarders are all about it. And I'm pretty sure most of them don't realize that Salomon snowboards is the same as Salomon skis. It's quite amusing.
They still make some of the best bindings and probably the best range of boots in the world. What people seem to forget is the bigger picture. Salomon is part of amer and who do amer also own, atomic. I have seen so many threads here recently of people recommending punx and trust me there will be even more for the infamous next year. So think about it, salomon got a reputation of going big mtn just as atomics park stuff took off big time. Umm I wonder if maybe that was planned all along.
not so sure the boots with tech inserts, that self destruct would be included in "best" range
Trying to garner market share by putting piss poor designed and inadequetly tested products aint cool and won't ever be
When you walk out the door in the morning, what matters most is not what type of skiing you do but whether that skiing is any good. On a waist-deep day, dropping into tight chutes or open bowls, down a sweet line throught the trees where pockets of wind-blown snow create so many natural lips and launching pads... So lets let the dubious bickering within our own sport die with it. The answer is already out there, along with the energy, the freedom, and the truth: What "saved skiing" is SKIING. - Tom Bie
