Cost : $649.99 at Sturtevant’s
Ideal User: Aggressive skier who skis more off piste than on looking for a one ski quiver
Pros: Great off piste performance and rips on the hardpack, soaks up everything.
Cons: Get a little tired or lazy, it will remind you what your doing wrong
Comparable Products: Volkl Mantra, Dynastar Sultan 94
95 under foot, wood core, and sandwich construction makes the New Salomon Sentinel stand out in this years Salomon line up. The ski may only be 5mm narrower than the Salomon Showgun but it pumps up the hardpack performance with its smaller turn radius. In the new snow it performed great benefiting from the rockered tip that really helped float well for a 95 waisted ski. On the hardpack the ski is super smooth, holds an edge really well
and loves a big turn.
Similar to the Volkl Mantra, it is one ski quiver in which you get out what you put into it. It is smooth, damp, high performance ride but not without some effort. Get a little lazy and it will let you know. Clean good looking graphics round it out a solid pick for someone looking for a high performance all mountain mid fat
