Comments: I can't belive Salomon killed this product and replaced it with the PocketRocket. All my memorable days of the last two winters have been on the SuperMountain. My previous powder ski was the straight X-Mountain which I thought was more versatile (better in bumps and trees). The SuperMountain is a superb soft snow ski. I've had it in thigh-deep sludge at Whistler. I've had it in thigh-deep bottomless champagne at Snowbird. I love it on corn snow and mush. It floats well enough to be great fun in Vermont "dust on crust" where everyone else is having a noisy ride down the hill. It's the best ski I've ever had in cut-up powder. It took a while to get used to it in the trees since it's shaped. It's pretty fair on firm snow for a powder ski but friggin' dangerous on true ice. If the bumps blow apart in your face, it's a fun bump ski. If they're firm, you start noticing how sluggish they are edge-to-edge. This is not a ski to use for fast runs on the groomers. It doesn't have the ProLink dampening system and that makes it chatter a lot.
