Salomon shoes have been my go to shoe for over 15 years now. If you have a narrow foot with a high arch you won’t find a better fit. My favorite of Salomon’s shoe line has to be the Xr Crossmax. It has a super grippy tread for trail running yet is plenty comfortable for short city runs. The simplistic quicklace system works great and gives you a tight fit without even having to tie a knot. The mesh material in the toe box does a fantastic job at letting your feet breathe and keeps them dry even on the hottest days.
The durability of Salomon shoes is also very impressive. I easily get 3-4 years out of them before it’s time to retire them as my lawn mowing shoe. If you’re the type of person that would take a mountain run over a gym’s treadmill then make sure you try these shoes on. Your feet will thank you!

With rocker in the tip and tail and a solid 122mm waist this is now my go to ski for powder conditions. Salomon’s honeycomb technology in the tip and tail combined with their decision to remove the edges from these areas have created a fat board with little swing weight. This results in a ski that can slash a turn with minimal effort making it ski-able for even beginners looking to get into the pow game.
Salomon also kept traditional camber underfoot to make it easier to hold an edge on hardpack. This ski can do it all, float in pow, rail on groomers, and blast through crud. So be sure to check these skis out! You won’t regret it.

If you’ve been eying the Salomon BBR Ski come to Alta this Saturday and Sunday February 4 and 5 to take a spin on these great powder skis. They will carve like no other ski you’ve been on but we’ll let you be the judge of that.
Salomon designer, Berber created the BBR ski by being inspired through surfing, kite-surfing and gliding sports on snow and water. He designed the ski as a true powder ski that carves on-piste but an on-piste ski that floats in the powder.
The BBR is not designed as the typical X-shape but is designed with a new V-shape. This shape is modeled after the shape of a surf board. The tip of the ski is shaped similar to the tip of a surf board with a narrow waist and a pin tail. Basically you’ll be skiing on an over-sized surfboard like tip with a rocker shape that will allow you to float in the powder yet adapt to any terrain and conditions the mountain offers.
The narrow waist and pintail of the BBR, provide grip and playfulness on harder snow. You will be able to make short radius turns and short edge to edge turns while skiing on on-piste terrain. The beauty of this ski is you can take it over to a powder field and will be guaranteed great flotation. Salomon calls the BBR the ‘V’ shape because it’s literally two skis in one.
