I'd been looking forward to skiing the MTN Explore for a while before I took it up Shit for Brains Couloir in Colorado's Summit County, mounted with a Dynafit FT Radical. On the up, both skinning and bootpacking, the ski was far from a burden at 2800 grams. By the time I descended the narrow couloir, which slopes to more than 45 degrees, conditions had become highly variable. Choppy powder and some hardpack up top with about eight inches of soft, light powder down lower. The MTN Explore was dynamic enough to be fun and supportive through all of it. Like other Salomon skis, it's more directional than you'd think and holds a great edge. But it's nimble enough to pivot and jump-turn when you find yourself in tight, steep lines. Huge thumbs up as an efficient and reliable all-around backcountry ski that would also be plenty of fun in the resort.

2017 Salomon MTN Explore 95 Description:

The MTN Explore 95 is the best ratio between climbing efficiency and downhill performance. This ski is very lightweight at only 1400g at 177cm but still stable on the downhill (especially for lighter skiers). This ski has Spaceframe 2.0 technology which provides superior stability, with lightweight agility for soft snow performance and underfoot power for hard pack confidence. The ski has 3D Full Karuba Wood Core with Semi Sandwich construction and CFX Superfiber reinforcements. It is designed specifically to enhance touring with G-Spot technology. This is an engineered sidecut and rocker shape to focus on maximum edge grip directly underfoot when in touring mode for easier climbing. It also gives you increased edge grip for security on traverses. You'll have a more efficient stride and glide while climbing which makes it easier to kick turns or make climbing transitions.
