2022 Salomon Stance 90 Skis
Salomon Stance 90 Skis
Fresh snow isn't a given, so intermediate to expert skiers will have a blast carving groomers and zipping through moguls on the Salomon Stance 90. Sharing an identical construction to the Stance 96 and Stance 102, the Stance 90 sports a Poplar wood care sandwiched between metal laminates, and sections of wood, carbon, and flax. The wood, carbon and flax sections are a carry-over design feature from Salomon's popular QST line that help dampen in rough conditions. The metal laminates help hold an edge on icy conditions or plow through crud without the addition of too much weight. The Stance 90 has plenty of tip rocker to initiate turns and a wide, 126 mm tip width that can get you floating on fresh snow days. At 90 mm underfoot, the Stance 90 is much quicker edge to edge than other skis in the Stance lineup, making it the best option for moguls. The surprisingly forgiving flex pattern for this ski helps keep it playful if you decide to dip into the woods for a few turns. Add to that the Stance 90 is fairly light for a directional, dual laminate ski, and skiers will find that they can take these skis to any mountain to do just about anything. Intermediate skiers will love the confidence building and approachable feel of the new Salomon Stance 90, and advanced and expert skiers will find that they can push these skis to the limit.

The Stance is a more capable carver and on-trail ski with a bit more heft to it than the lighter and more maneuverable Escaper. If you're looking for light and quick, the Escaper is the way to go, but for better carving and firm snow performance, I'd go Stance for sure. Have fun!
Totally. The Stance has the same type of stability and dampness as the Enforcer but is more flexible for bumps and trees. As a complement to the Enforcer 100, the Stance 90 in the 188 is a fantastic choice.
I would say Stance is a better choice. it's aggressive and strong, but still a bit more accessible for your improving skill set. The enforcer is on the stiffer and heavier side, so that might hinder progress a bit more than the Stance. I'd go with the 176 in that ski. Have fun!
176 is going to be very long for your height. The Stance is mostly camber with a little bit of tip rocker so that 176 would feel extremely long and sluggish. A 168 would still be in the expert category for you height and weight so you should have no problems with that length. Another ski that I think you should check out is the K2 Mindbender 89 Ti. It's a groomer focused ski and is extremely playful and fun.
