Richard Rubin wrote a review of Salomon BBR 7.9 Ski on March 28, 2012
Report from Spring in Taos . As an old PSIA cer
tified guy, I found the 7.9 a great ski for variable conditions, frozen and soft. 8.9 was too stiff in bumps.
Be sure to get adequate length. I liked the 169s, compared to my usual 163 Tiger Sharks or Bridges.
