Buy Now on The Ski Monster for $699.99
All-new for this year, the Salomon Stance 96 is a mid-waisted offering geared toward high-performance resort skiing. Equally at home on long, winding groomers of Big Sky and steep, crunchy shots at Killington, Salomon Stance 96 brings a race-inspired sidecut with a smooth turning prowess. Inside, Salomon strengthens the package with Metal Twin Frame technology—two layers of laminates, one milled for weight savings, with a carbon/flax weave integrated into the cut-out portion of the first laminate, promoting the ski’s reactivity. More than one tester wanted to take this plank home right away.
FREESKIER tester thoughts:
“Very powerful and responsive ski with no speed limit. The ski has the ability to flex into a variety of turn shapes while a snappy tail is extremely compliant, allowing you to scrub speed when you think you’re about to shit yourself.”
