Read the Review Transcript: Hi, I'm Julie. I just got off the Salomon Bamboo. I give this ski a 3 out of 5 star rating. Just had it in some variable snow conditions and I thought that it probably could have performed a little bit better in that variable snow. I tended to get on top of it and just kind of chunk across the top as oppose to really diving in and holding a good solid turn. It did make nice smooth short and long radius turns. But good for your intermediate level skier that's going to be skiing a lot of hard pack conditions.
