Donald Says: The Salomon Lotus is a perfect board to start out on. It is a very forgiving snowboard designed specifically for a woman. It has a deep sidecut for easy stable turns, a soft flex pattern to keep slower speeds smooth, and a price tag that will keep a few extra bucks in your pocket. The Salomon Lotus is a great value, and it will help you build your confidence on the mountain while letting you have as much fun as possible.


Mike Says: Salomon snowboards are unique because they are always faster and stiffer then comparable boards from other companies. The Salomon Lotus is a beginner's model, but I recommend this board for athletic women who are confident and will pick up snowboarding quickly. The Lotus will also work very well for intermediate women who want to save some cash on their purchase.

So, this is my first board ever, and I have to say that I love it.  It feels light and easy to maneuver.  The flex keeps it at a low speed as I turn in powder and groomers.  It helped progress from beginner runs to the more intermediate runs.  Another bonus graphics.  I love the whole air and water theme with the fish and the birds.  Also, the bottom graphic is great. 

I recommend this board to any beginner who's looking to progress.  And it's price makes it another super added bonus.

along with ste_funny this is also my first board, i don't have much to compare the lotus to but the rentals. But this board is really great to learn on for beginners. The design on the board is aweeesome. I was sad to put a stomp pad on it because it covered a part of the design.

a question to ste_funny, how are the Salomon poison bindings? the Salomon grace bindings... I'm not liking too much.

Well, I have the 06 Poison bindings and they work great for me.  I haven't really used them that much, but I love it.  They feel great and everything.  They're light and responsive.  And they feel really comfortable.  I don't know about the 07 Poison, but I bet they'll be around the same thing, maybe better.  If you can, go for the 2007 ones.  Haha.

And another thing, I don't have a stomp pad on mine Lotus yet. hahah.  I don't want it to get in the way of the design.  hahaha.

What Salomon would be good for a female intermediate rider that loves the park, but also wants to carve down the reg. slopes? I ride the icy slopes of PA and once and awhile powder. Thanks!
