Test Notes

With a classic shape and straightforward flex, I knew I could call the Salomon Stance 102 “ol’ trusty” at first sight. If I were sent to the mountains blindfolded and clueless about what type of snow conditions awaited me, I would not be the least bit concerned with having this ski draped over my shoulder. The Stance is a daily driver through and through, and while I found it was most at home in tight trees and on groomers, I would happily take it anywhere on the mountain. It was lively, yet not stiff enough to make me pucker, and the snappy flex and touch of rocker allowed me to transition from turn-to-turn with ease, all while retaining the full-throttled power of its more traditional, directional shape that any intermediate to advanced skier would enjoy. —Sean Ennis
