Testing skis so you don't have to.

Tricia: The key to this review is the word "Blast." In a year that many manufacturers are introducing some amazing sub-80mm frontside skis, Salomon is in it to win it with the S/Max Blast. With the Edge Amplifier binding system, this ski gives you immediate edge-to-edge transitions for some amazing fun on early-morning groomers and power turns through mid-day crud. New words in technology sometimes seem like gimmicks, and other times they do what they promise. This time it's a promise that Salomon delivers.
Inside tip: Don't be afraid to get on it.
