"You wouldn't buy a car without taking it for a test-drive," explains Salomon Marketing Director Bo Johnson. "Why buy a pair of skis or a board without taking them for a test-ride? That's why we created Salomon Oasis. It's a great opportunity to test our entire line-up free of charge and win a ton of free products from Salomon and Oasis partners. It's the Ultimate Hook-Up."
