Salomon: 20 years of twin tips

Salomon: 20 years of twin tips

If you haven’t already checked it out, then we thoroughly advise you to grab a cup of tea and check out Salomon’s recent edit, “Becoming History”. It celebrates the 20-year anniversary of a pivotal moment in the story of skiing – the release of the seminal twin-tipped TenEighty and the huge success of the influential New Canadian Air Force crew.

As well as explaining how this dynamic and exciting time went down, with original action and talking heads from the guys who were there, it also serves as a poignant tribute to the late great JP Auclair – a key member of the NCAF and true freeski pioneer, who was tragically killed in an avalanche in South America in 2014.

It’s really cool to look back and see the journey that freeskiing has gone through to get to where we are today, while reflecting on how we pass the baton of stoke and progression on from one skiing generation to the next. Salomon is a brand that’s been there through it all, and continues to work with athletes to push the sport forward today, so we’d encourage you to check out the range in store whenever you get a chance. You won’t be disappointed!
