Read the Review Transcript: I'm Adam and I was just skiing on the Salomon BBR 8.9. I give it a 3 out of 5. It's a great ski for somebody who's not really looking to get very fast or very aggressive on it. Turns really well at short quick turns. Got the big wide shovel rolls you into a turn really quickly. Verticle sidewall keeps you in when the snows a little bit firm and a pin tail. Just not my style of ski but it's a good ski for somebody who's looking for something to stay on and off the trail a little bit and likes quick and short turns.
