The Stance line is a new offering from Salomon this year, aimed at frontside skiers who ski hard and fast. The Salomon Stance W 88 Skis are the narrowest women's offering, with two layers of titanal reinforcing a lightweight poplar and karuba core. Thanks to its lightweight construction, narrow waist, and all-mountain rocker profile, the Stance is able to make quick and playful turns on varied terrain. But it's still a directional metal ski that comes most alive when being driven down the fall line. For ex-racers and speed demons looking for a hard snow ski, the new Stance is an instant contender.
