Testers couldn’t find consensus about what they liked in the all-new Stance 96. Some felt the skis were fully capable all over the mountain on a wide variety of terrain, while others felt the skis truly excelled making smooth arcs at high speeds. Built with two sheets of Titanal and Salomon’s signature Carbon/Flax blended laminate, this race-inspired ski shape can rail turns and handle variable conditions. Pro tip: Don’t be afraid to size down to get the most all-mountain versatility; there’s more meat here than one might expect. 

STRENGTHS: Stability at Speed, Hard-Snow Integrity

WEAKNESSES: Forgiveness, Flotation
