Winter Park Demo Jan 2012

I demo'd these BBR 8.9s in 169cm and fell in love. They are a good all terrain sky. They float over just about anything effortlessly. Very forgiving skis. I have K2 Comanches with Salomon bindings and they compare like a base model straight cab pickup truck to the BBRs Cadillac ride. Great skis for beginners to expert. I was able to go places and do things I would have been in trouble with my K2s. Mt confidence shot trough the roof with these things. I'm going to buy a pair this season for sure. These skis made turns in hard pack/icy snow with ease, even when other skiers were spinning out! Moguls, light powder, deep powder, packed snow, ice, and transitioning between any of those conditions are a breeze. Salomon got it right with the BBRs!

You're on the money Rob. I did a demo twice, once in December (4 runs) and one in January (half day). The snow at Mt. Hood Meadows is usually heavy but my first runs on the BBRs blew me away, easy turning, held an edge, stable, crud was no problem, no pow that day though. Went to Mt. Bachelor next, wow, another great day, they were so smooth, my confidence level was sky high. Bought a pair and have been 3 times since. I made a great decision. Can't wait to try them at a ski area that has dryer snow. It does make a difference you know. You Utah and Colorado skiers don't know how good you have it.
