The Salomon BBR 8.0 Package is a spectacular ski, boot and binding setup for intermediate and advanced skiers. Sporting it's surfboard inspired shape, the BBR 8.0 can truly be defined as an all mountain ski. The wide shovel and narrower waist/tail helps the ski float in soft snow while the exaggerated shape makes turning this ski on groomers easier than ever before. The Dalbello Prime is the included boot in the package which is both comfortable and high performance with a 60 flex and a 105mm last. Lastly, the Z10 B90 bindings are included with a din range from 3-10 and can adjust to most boot sizes (257-280mm). We have already done all the research for you, the BBR 8.0 package is a no-brainer for all mountain skiers!

Ski poles are your friends. They help you maintain proper form and balance, as well as help you get across the flat spots. The only people that shouldn't use poles are kids that cannot parallel yet, true beginners, snowboarders, and park skiers that desperately need to look like snowboarders. So if you aren't one of these categories, you should be using poles.
Sizing poles is easy. Just use the ski pole Sizing chart to give you a good estimate of what length of poles you should be using.
Ideally, your arm should be parallel to the ground when you grasp the pole (with the tip up) below the basket.

There are cases when you can go longer or shorter than what the chart recommends:

  • If you are a bump skier, you should size down 2-8 inches.
  • If you want an aggressive stance for steeps and higher speed skiing, size down 2 inches.
  • If you are doing a lot of park skiing, size down 2-6 inches
  • If you Telemark, size down 2-6 inches
  • If you are powder skiing a lot, size up 2 inches.
  • If you are ski jousting, size up 4-12 inches

We have thousands of poles to choose from, and if we don't have your size, any of our poles are easy to cut to length.

Description

Details

Free Binding Mounting: We will mount you ski bindings for free whenever you order skis and bindings. If you order boots, too, we can adjust them so they are ready to hit the slopes right out of the box! Just be sure to fill out the mounting form that comes up after checkout.

Package Information: We provide complete binding adjustment to all packages purchased at no extra cost to you. After you complete checkout and payment a mounting form will popup for you to enter the skier information to go along with this purchase. If you don't know all the information required, Please fill out the form to the best of your ability.

Skier Ability: Upper Intermediate: This ski allows the higher intermediate skiers to feel comfortable at a wide range of speeds, and offer a good mix of stability for aggressive skiing without loosing the ability to turn easily at slower speeds, if that's your thing.

Salomon Z10 Binding Included: This ski comes with a pair of Z10 bindings to complete the package:
DIN Range: 3-10
Skier Weight Range: 80-225 lbs.

Ideal Target Skier: West Coast All Mountain Skier: Skiers on the west coast will enjoy this ski as an all mountain, do everything model, while skiers on the east coast will find this more suitable for powder skiing, or when there is chopped up crud to be had.

Salomon BBR Skis: These skis are not like other skis, the shape is unique and not found anywhere else (yet). These skis are extremely versatile, as their waist widths are not incredibly wide they are nimble in the trees and can carve on hardpack. But the flip side is the big surfy tip, which will absolutely help non-powder skiers learn to love powder. You could take these to the mountain everyday of the winter, no problem.

Mondo Half and Whole Sizes: There is no fit difference between half and whole mondo sizes. So, a man who wears a size 9 or 9.5 US shoe size can choose a size 27.0 or 27.5. Some of our boots are only available in the half size, don't be alarmed, just remember they are the same size so you can select either one worry free.

Sandwich Construction (SW): SW means that the sides of the skis are a vertical wall rather the the rounded Cap construction forund on most skis. Since none of the skis material needs to be exerting force maintaining shape at the edges, SW skis are stiffer than their Cap counterparts. Most people find SW skis to be damper, that is more glued to the snow, superior at high speed GS turns and top notch at busting through crud or choppy snow.

Wood Core: The standard core which has throughout time provided the best performance and durability. Each model may have it's own density level to help define flex and maximum speed but every wood core ski will be solid.

Cap Construction: The topsheet of this ski drapes over the edge to form a clean and rounded finish to the side of the ski. This style of construction adds some torsional rigidity, and helps reduce topsheet chipping when the skis hit each other.

V-Shape Sidecut: A very wide tip shape, coupled with a narrow waist and narrow tail, this is the next generation of 'shaped' skis. They are as good on groomers as the current generation of carving skis, but way better in powder.

Textured Surface: Ideal for repelling wear and tear on the skis surface. Textured ski surfaces (aka snakeskin topsheet) are rough surfaces to the ski that hide or repel scratches keep your skis look new long after they are not. Originally designed for rental skis for obvious reasons, this surface is now available on a wide variety of retail skis as well since everyone likes their skis to look nice.

Tip Rocker: This refers to the early rising of the tip to get the ski on top of the soft snow, rather than pushing through it. When the skis are held with the bases together, it will look like the tips are bent, and spread away from eachother. Tip rocker also helps skiers pivot the skis, making tight trees remarkably easy, and gives the ski a surf-like feel.

Salomon Pulse Pad: A layer of rubber along the edges and in certain zones of the ski for a smoother ride and improved snow contact.

Twin Tip Skis: Not just for spinning 360s in the park any more. These ski have turned up tails, aka twin tips. While they will definitely aid you in hurling those aforementioned 360s, they also do many other things. They make landing jumps and skiing backwards smoother, but they also ski better in trees and tight situations where the reduced running length add to mobility. In fact the only downside to twin tips is that they don't perform true full arced carving turns as well as traditional skis. But hey, the world has evolved to doing more than simple carving so maybe you should too.

Integrated Binding System: Once mounted, the binding sits on rails or a plate that is affixed to the ski. The main difference, however, is that the binding can move slightly on the rail during the flexing motion of the ski underneath. This setup means the binding does not inhibit the flex of the ski as it is sort of floating on these rails. What this means for the skier: A more even flex and smoother turn, with less skidding or 'chatter' from the ski. This is most noticeable on groomed terrain.

Topsheet Wear and Tear: Sandwich Sidewall skis may be prone to topsheet chipping even after one day of skiing. This is especially true when skiers are learning (banging the skis together more) or while skiing in the terrain park where there is more impact on the ski while hitting rails and jumps. This is normal cosmetic wear and tear and does not affect the overall performance of the ski.

Product Questions

This skis sounds perfect for me... the length recommendation for my skill level is right between the 159-169cm available... should I go 2 inches short, or 2 inches long? Also, I do not know how to gage the boot rating... 70, 80, 90 degrees/flex... the boots seem closer to beginner than the skis... suggestion pls

I am considering this package, but unsure about the 169cm or 179 size. I am a 5 foot 8, 200lb, intermediate level skiier. Levelnine's sizing chart would tell me to get 159 or 169cm for my height, but I hear the BBRs are a very different ski. Solomon's web site would recommend "your size + 5cm" for intermediate on the BBR so 179cm may be closer. what do you recommend? (I may call in :) )

Best All Around SkiReview by Aurora
Rating
I purchased essentially the same ski from Level 9 four years ago and can't say enough. I stick to the expert runs and these never disappoint, so much so I came back to buy a package for my daughter and husband. The only shortcoming I have found is the don't hold a good edge when cooking on ice, but then again, that's not their terrain claim based on the design, so I can't fault the ski for that. They make steep, technical runs feel effortless and I've never noticed the weight. It will be hard for me to find a replacement ski if this design goes out of style. (Posted on 12/2/2016)

Great Overall SkisReview by Jobby

Level 9 helped me pick these skis... I said I am intermediate to advanced, like speed, and want one set of skis for every condition... this is the perfect ski... they are wide enough for powder and the shape is great for cuts and control... They are also great at plowing through heavy or sloppy snow... It was the third season I used these skis before I realized they are heavier than most skis, but I did no realize while skiing because they are so agile... The fat front is also a conversation starter on the lift... 5 star for sure! (Posted on 11/23/2016)
heavy feelReview by penelope

I was looking for an all Mountain Ski. The ski is fine, but I find it heavy, not made for quick turns. The people from Level Nine were great, and I will buy from them again, but would not get this ski again. I liked my rental skis better. (Posted on 1/2/2016)
Could not love these skis moreReview by Curtis

I had to come back and write a review on these skis after I was forced to use rental skis due to limited space in our vehicle. Never doing that again! Going back to rental skis after using these skis really demonstrated how absolutely awesome these skis are. They are so smooth and stable on almost any snow conditions. Easy to turn and you can totally go all-mountain with them! I couldn't be happier and look forward to many visits to the mountains this year!!!! (Posted on 11/27/2015)

A Great dealReview by Spencer

products arrived quickly and were all set up to my specifications. I was out skiing that afternoon. A great deal on some really nice skis and boots. The carrying bag was very nice with plenty of room for my skis and poles. (Posted on 1/20/2015)
