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.
