    Salomon Skis Factory

    I happened to be glancing at a pair of Salomon skis and was very surprised to see "Made in Austria" on the topsheet of this formerly very-French brand. I know they part of the same Amer Sports glob as Atomic, etc. However, I had thought that they were still fundamentally a French operation...

    If you were allowed quivers from only one ski manufacturer, what would you choose?

    I think either Blister or Ski Essentials does this with their reviews so I t hought it might be fun to see how folks here would pick for a one, two or three ski quiver if limited to a single manufacturer. I picked a few of the sponsors here and added Rossignol because, well, I love Rossignol. :)...

    Changing The Brakes on Salomon X16 Lab

    So, I've got a line on some Salomon X16 Lab bindings, which appeal to me both for the DIN range and their VAR system (I used to ski on Ess bindings exclusively back in the day), but they've only got 70mm brakes and I'm planning to mount them to a ski with a 97mm waist. A lot of bindings have...

    This is interesting. Salomon is using flax grown in Normandy as part of their skis. Layered with carbon fiber. We went through basalt fibers, rocks, several years ago and now we're on plants.

    Who owns who? Current ski company ownership

    I've lost track of which ski companies are in which company "families". I've searched, but not coming up with an accurate updated picture of how things currently are with the parent companies and their brands. Anyone have a reference source with the answers?
