I started skiing Salomon's back in 91 when they came out with the 9000 series, I then skied the next two generations after that I felt Salomon became a marketing machine and lost their way from making great skis. Flash forward 20 plus years. Enter the Enduro Series....wow these are not your uncle Liam's Salomons, the Enduro's ski fantastic. Salomon was combined finesse with power in these skis and allowed a design that allows the 850 to crush the frontside and take no prisoners.
