SALOMON 2022 SKI TORUING NEW MTN RANGE:
40% OF RECYCLED MATERIALS
Ski touring has exploded in popularity across Europe and North America over the last decade, and its popularity has only grown in the last two winter seasons, when the global pandemic forced the closure of many ski resorts and sent more skiers into the backcountry.
The Salomon MTN ski touring range was in the works long before that, however, with the company’s product designers working closely with all types of backcountry skiers to develop a progressive, sustainable range. The ski and boot ranges offer a model for every flavor of backcountry skiing—resort touring, mountain touring, fast touring ski-mo days, roaming from one cabin or mountain refuge to the next, and steep skiing on big lines.
“The design of our new MTN range of backcountry skis and boots is driven by an energetic and positive mindset on one hand and the environmental connection on the other, so we have worked on this duality to mix the sports codes with sustainability to make a progressive product range,” says Quentin Boutry, Salomon’s Product Manager for Alpine Skis and Boots. “We are creating products to be radical, simple and modern, and we want skiers to be able to see the technology in what we make.”
The goal with the MTN range was to be as good as any competitor on the market at going uphill and best-in-class at going down, and to create those skis and boots in a more sustainable manner. Overall, 40 percent of the material used in the MTN ski and boot range is made of recycled materials.
SALOMON SKIS MTN CARBON AND MTN PRO LINES
Engineered to be light enough for easy ski touring, yet wide enough for outstanding free touring, the all-new MTN 96 Carbon ski moves downhill as effectively as it climbs up. Combining all the strengths of Salomon’s iconic MTN 95 touring ski, it has an alpine shape and a more lightweight, carbon construction.
The lightest wide touring ski the company has ever made is reinforced with carbon to minimize your uphill effort, leaving you with more energy to reach beyond your comfort zone on the way down. Salomon’s exclusive Cork Damplifier is visibly integrated into the tip of the MTN 96 Carbon ski to filter terrain vibrations and create a more stable ski no matter the snow conditions.
All of that was done with sustainability in mind. The ski is made with 40 percent sustainable materials as part of Salomon’s efforts aimed at minimizing the product’s impact on the environment. Salomon’s new MTN ski touring range also includes the super versatile MTN 86 Carbon ski, the MTN Pro 86 and MTN Pro 80, which is ideal for those who are new to ski touring.
The super versatile women’s MTN 86 Pro touring ski performs just as well in the backcountry as it does on-piste. At 86 mm underfoot, it goes wherever you want and is designed for mountain lovers who like to wait until the last minute to decide whether to skin up the resort or ski down a new area of the mountain.
This versatile ski has been constructed to be light enough for easy skinning up, yet stable and powerful when it’s time to ski down. Combining the best of both worlds, the MTN 86 Pro has an all-mountain shape that delivers outstanding stability on-piste, while easily adapting to different backcountry terrains. Made to last with 40 percent sustainable materials, the MTN 86 Pro is part of Salomon’s efforts to minimize the company’s product impact on the environment.
