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.

I am looking for a new ski. How you would compare the 2021 Salomon Stance 90 Ski to the 2021 Rossignol Black Ops Escaper Ski? I am 60 years old, 160 lbs, and 5'8". I have been skiing for 55 years and am at least a strong intermediate if not advanced. I ski in the east usually on manmade groomed runs. Each year usually ski the Rockies for a week. Out west conditions are usually packed powered or chopped. Any blue and certainly single black are in my wheel house. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated!

Hi David!
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!

Northeast all mountain skier, age 59, 6’4” 250lbs strong intermediate/ low advanced, looking for a 88-92 underfoot to replace my 90 Vantage TI and compliment my Enforcer 100’s. With my size and weight, I like a stiffer ski but would like to try a ski a little softer but still stable that I can take into the bumps and woods but still stable when there 3 inches of fresh snow.The Stance 188 seem to be a possibility. Any thoughts? Thanks.

HI Scott!
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.

Hi, I am 5’10 (178cm) and 165 (75kg) and want to upgrade from my current salomon xdr 80 ti (176cm) although it is fun and manouvrable, it lacks stability at speed / flapping. I am probably in btw intermediate / advanced level, wanting to go beyond intermediate now. 60-70% frontside, but cannot resist bumps, leaving the trail for tree temptatioms etc. I would like to keep the fun / maneouvrability but enable more speed and a bit more aggressive style. Stance 90 or Enforcer 88 is what I look for, but which one would probably best for me.. and which length? would appreciate to hear your expert opinion!
Question by: Morten Christoffersen on Mar 4, 2022, 4:00 PM
HI Morten!
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!

I'm a 5'4" 145lb. advanced level skier shopping for new skis for next season. I've spent most of the past three seasons on my 165 cm XDR 84s. I really enjoy their mix of maneuverability, quickness from edge to edge, and stability. I'm looking for a ski with similar characteristics, but with a little more dampness at speed and a longer turn radius. I only ski 30-40 days each season, most of which are at mid-Atlantic resorts. I take two or three trips up north to get into more varied terrain and higher elevations. The Stance 90s are at the top of my list. Do you think it's worth considering sizing up to 176 cm given their amount of tip and tail rocker? I spend most of my time on groomers but still want to be able to enjoy bumps and glades. I find that, if I really step on my outside ski in a carved turn, my XDRs whip around a little too quickly for me. Any other skis at around 90 under foot that I should consider?
Question by: Paul on May 7, 2022, 5:04 AM
Hi Paul!

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.
