Read the Review Transcript: Hi I'm April and this is the Salomon Lava. I'm going to give this ski a 5 out of 5. This ski was a for that lady thats just starting to develope her tipping skills. She's not always on the money with her turn shape. She's pretty comfortable with the blues but black still intimidate her. She's got a lot of help with this ski. It's softer in the shovel and in the tail so when she tips it up on edge and starts to pressure it, it actually enhances the turn. It comes around and a cross the fall line quicker. So if you're someone who is struggling with your turns you're not always on the money and get all heebeegeebees on the blacks get back on your tails and you get launched give this ski a try. It doesn't let you get launched. Helps you by having the softer tail and it lets you come a cross the hil quicker. So you can catch up and get re-stacked and start your turn over again. Salomon Lava. I gave a 5.
