Read the Review Transcript: Troy here. Just got done riding the Salomon RS 800. This is a great intermediate-to-advanced-intermediate frontside ski. Carves like a dream. Really good edge control, holds you really well in the turns. It's one that's really going to take you to the next level. It's nice and light. You can turn it easy at slow speeds, once you get up to speed it's got a lot of support for ya.
