Salomon Salvatore Sanchez
Editors' Choice
Park and Pipe
Never want to leave the park? Salomon's completely revamped twin-tip Sanchez will keep you lapping all day long. With serious reverse camber (both the tip and tail are upturned), this board is ideal for play: Butters and presses are a cinch. A lightweight, snappy aspen core translates to big air and fast spins, and strips of birch armor it against years of box and rail abuse. That soft flex works against you, though, on firmer snow (think bone-rattling chatter), so pick another board if you ride a lot of groomers. 148, 151, 153, 154, 157; $350;
