None of them have skied the intense terrain of La Grave before, and they are equipped with the 2015 Völkl V-Werks BMT (Big Mountain Touring) skis so they can really see what they’re all about.

Every year Salomon’s Research and Development department spends a week with Salomon’s Running Athletes to test their products, do biomechanics tests, and brainstorm the next big change for upcoming generations of products. This year Salomon’s athletes traveled to Italy in the late spring where they were able to talk with Salomon’s Research and Development Team and test out their gear while running in the beautiful, Limone Mountains, that deliver breathtaking views.
