The Completo is one of the longest-standing shapes in Folsom’s collection, designed to be highly maneuverable, accessible, and versatile. 

In recent years, they revised the original design and expanded it into a broader Completo collection, including the Completo 100, Completo 105, and Completo 113.

This spring, a couple of us spent time on two lengths of the Completo 100, built with their standard “Signature Series” construction, to get an idea of how it compares to Folsom’s other shapes and the rest of the all-mountain market, and think about how their various customization options might play into what sorts of skiers would most appreciate it.

What Folsom says about the Completo 100

“The Complete One Ski Quiver. This ski transforms the entire mountain into your private playground. Narrow enough for precision on groomers, wide enough to handle moderate amounts of fresh snow. Tapered tips and tails create intuitive and forgiving entry and exit to turns. Rocker and camber provide the total package for skiing any type of mixed snow. 100mm underfoot width keeps the edges accessible and easy to engage.”

Construction & Custom Options

For reference, Folsom offers a wide range of ski shapes that they will customize to your preferences via different materials, rocker profiles, flex patterns, graphics, etc.

They also offer some of their popular shapes in a pre-built, less expensive “Signature Series” construction; the Signature Series skis come with a standardized build for a given model that Folsom designed to work for the widest range of skiers.  

We’ve been testing the 174 cm and 186 cm Signature Series versions of the Completo 100 (albeit with Folsom’s “Captain” graphic, not the Signature Series graphic). These skis come with Folsom’s lighter resort-oriented core construction, which features a poplar / bamboo wood core and 90/10 fiberglass-to-carbon ratio for the laminate structure. They also have Folsom’s “Everyday Rocker” profile, “Round” tail shape, and “Standard” flex pattern.

As with their full-custom skis, the Signature Series models are made in Folsom’s Denver, Colorado factory. 

If you want to go the full-custom route, Folsom can make the Completo 100 with heavier and lighter constructions, stiffer and softer flex patterns, different rocker profiles, and a whole lot of graphic options.

Shape & Rocker Profile

The Completo 100’s shape is a huge part of its overall on-snow personality. It’s defined by the notable amount of early tapering at its tips and tails, which decreases its effective edge and increases maneuverability, relative to skis that feature less tapered tips and/or tails, such as Folsom’s Cash and Primary collections. 

The “Everyday Rocker” profile on the Completo 100 pairs those tapered tips and tails with pretty deep rocker lines, a semi-twinned tail, and some camber in the middle, though its rocker profile doesn’t stand out quite as much as its shape.

Flex Pattern

Here’s how we’d characterize the flex pattern of the 186 cm Completo 100:

Tips: 6.5
Shovels: 6.5-7.5
In Front of Toe Piece: 7.5-10
Underfoot: 10
Behind the Heel Piece: 10-8.5
Tails: 8-6.5

Here’s how we’d characterize the flex pattern of the 174 cm Completo 100:

Tips: 6
Shovels: 6.5-7.5
In Front of Toe Piece: 8-10
Underfoot: 10
Behind the Heel Piece: 9.5-8.5
Tails: 8-7

Overall, this a pretty accessible flex pattern that’s fairly soft at the ends of the ski and strong around the middle. It transitions smoothly between those softer / stiffer areas and does so a bit more slowly / over a longer part of the ski when compared to some of the other Folsom skis we’ve tested, such as their Cash 106.


For their full-custom skis, Folsom can make just about any length you want from about 150 cm to 200 cm. They currently offer the Signature Series Completo 100 in 156, 174, and 186 cm lengths.

Sidecut Radius

Looking at the 156, 174, and 186 cm lengths of the Completo 100, Folsom lists stated sidecut radii of 12, 16, and 18 meters, respectively.

Those are on the tighter end of the spectrum in general, especially for the shorter lengths of the Completo 100, but the 174 cm and 186 cm Completo 100’s stated sidecut radii aren’t wild outliers in the all-mountain class.

Mount Point

Our 186 cm Completo 100’s recommended mount point is about -6.8 cm from true center, while our 174 cm length’s is a touch closer to center, at about -5.3 cm.

Those are both more forward / less set back than many directional skis, but not as centered as most freestyle-specific skis.

This standard version of the Completo 100 is fairly light for a resort-oriented all-mountain ski of its size, at about 1860 grams per ski for the 186 cm length and ~1675 grams for the 174 cm. 

You could always make it heavier and more resort-oriented or lighter and more touring-friendly if you go the full-custom route, but the Signature Series Completo 100 is on the lighter end of the spectrum compared to other ~100mm-wide all-mountain skis.

For reference, here are a number of our measured weights (per ski in grams) for some notable skis. Keep in mind the length differences to try to keep things apples-to-apples.

Now, let’s dive into how the Completo 100 actually performs on snow:

2024-2025 Folsom Completo 100, BLISTER


Luke Koppa (5’8”, 155 lbs / 173 cm, 70 kg): For reference, both Kristin Sinnott (pictured throughout this review) and I spent time on the Completo 100 this past season at Crested Butte Mountain Resort, with Kristin skiing the 174 cm version and me on the 186 cm.

As of writing this, Kristin is currently on a well-deserved vacation, but I got her thoughts on the ski before she left. So, here, I’ll be summarizing both our experiences on the Completo 100 and what sorts of skiers we think will most appreciate it.

Moguls, Trees, & Tight Terrain

I’ll start with where the Completo 100 stands out the most: off-piste terrain where lots of turns and maneuverability are what you need.

The Completo 100’s tapered tips and tails, coupled with its fairly deep tip and tail rocker lines, make it very easy to release, pivot, skid, and slash on the snow. It’s also pretty light and lively, which are nice traits if / when you want to pop and hop it around off the snow.

Add into account its forgiving flex pattern, and the Completo 100 gets high marks for pretty much all of the traits that typically make a ski maneuverable, agile, and easy to ski in tight terrain. The Completo 100 definitely feels like it was designed to make this sort of terrain more approachable than it would be on less tapered, less rockered, stiffer, and/or heavier skis.

Kristin Sinnott on the Folsom Completo 100 (Crested Butte Mountain Resort, CO)

That said, on very firm moguls, the Completo 100 doesn’t feel all that precise. The middle of the ski still provides respectable edge hold, but in this terrain and others, the Completo 100 feels more biased toward pivoting and sliding turns than carving them.

But in a wide variety of tight terrain, the Completo 100 stands out as a notably easygoing ski that can also be skied quite fast, especially if you take a more dynamic approach with lots of turns and on-the-fly adjustments, rather than trying to charge straight down the fall line.

On-Piste / Groomers

As you might expect, given what we just discussed above, the Completo 100 is not the best option in this class if you prioritize on-piste precision. It’ll get you down most groomers with little drama, but especially on firm, smooth snow, it often encourages a casual approach with more skidding and feathering than high-edge-angle carving.

On more inviting piste conditions, like fresh mid-winter corduroy or slopes absent of icy, scraped-off snow, the Completo 100 can still be fun to carve. Both Kristin and I had to initially adjust our technique a bit since the Completo 100 doesn’t initiate carved turns as quickly or precisely as most ~100mm-wide skis that feature less tip taper and/or tip rocker. The Completo 100’s somewhat tight sidecut radius (18 m @ 186 cm / 16 m @ 174 cm) does slightly alleviate this, and once you get used to where and how turn initiation happens on this ski, you can work it into fairly high edge angles, especially on soft-ish snow surfaces.

2024-2025 Folsom Completo 100, BLISTER
Kristin Sinnott on the Folsom Completo 100 (Crested Butte Mountain Resort, CO)

In terms of turn shapes on piste, the Completo 100 is pretty versatile; I can bend it into tight ones when the snow is easily edgeable, but it’s also quite predictable when opening things up and making large-radius turns at lower edge angles. And feathering between turn sizes is super easy on this ski.

Powder & Soft Chop

The Completo 100 is a ton of fun in any sort of soft snow, and it outperforms many of its ~100mm-wide competition when it comes to flotation and maneuverability in these conditions.

Coincidentally, the first time I ever tried a Folsom ski was at one of their demo days many years ago, when I got on the original 113mm-wide Completo. While the Completo 100 is much more practical for daily driver usage and not as buoyant in deep snow, it shares a strong family resemblance to the original, wider Completo in terms of how loose, surfy, and easy it feels in soft conditions.

The Completo 100’s fairly soft, rockered shovels do a nice job of planing up in fresh snow; they’re not super wide and I’d definitely prefer something wider if I know I’ll be skiing powder deeper than about 8 in / 20 cm, but this ski floats quite well for its size. Maybe more notable, though, is its maneuverability in soft snow — it’s really easy to both slash and carve this ski in pow, soft chop, slush, etc.

2024-2025 Folsom Completo 100, BLISTER
Kristin Sinnott on the Folsom Completo 100 (Crested Butte Mountain Resort, CO)

That makes the Completo 100 a great option for finding stashes of fresh in tight trees and the like, and I also really enjoyed skiing the Completo 100 dynamically in tracked-out pow — slash or air off the clumps of soft chop, and then make lots of quick, small turns to control speed between them.

If you prefer to make bigger, higher-speed turns in soft chop, the Completo 100 isn’t the first ski I’d point you toward within Folsom’s lineup. Less tapered, longer-radius shapes (which often come with stiffer flex patterns and heavier builds) like the Folsom Primary and Giver will get knocked around less in these scenarios, but I had a blast surfy and hopping around soft snow aboard the Completo 100.

Firm Chop & Crud

In challenging snow conditions, the Completo 100 requires a lighter and more precise touch if you want to continue to ski pretty fast. Or, you can just take advantage of its easy, maneuverable ride and ski more slowly as you look for better snow.

If you try to make fairly large-radius, high-speed turns on the Completo 100 in crud, its tips are pretty prone to getting knocked around and unsettling the ski. Most of the things we touched on that make the Completo 100 so surfy and agile are also what hamper its composure at speed, so none of this is a big surprise.

That said, I have been very impressed by the suspension of the Completo 100, relative to its weight. At around 1860 grams per ski for the 186 cm length, the Signature Series Completo 100 is quite light for its size, yet it does a better job of muting out / absorbing on-snow impacts and vibrations than many skis that are a bit heavier; its shape feels like the bigger factor holding it back from being particularly stable at speed. But in rough snow, I found the Completo 100 plenty predictable while skidding my way to more consistent conditions.

Playfulness, Stance, & Mount Point

The Completo 100 is a directional ski, but it’s a very playful one.

Overall, the Completo 100 has a slight preference for a more upright, centered stance, rather than requiring that you drive it really hard through the shovels. However, apart from in deep snow, I could still ski it with a traditional, forward stance. It’s fairly versatile in this regard, though, between its less set-back recommended mount point and tapered tips, it took some getting used to for Kristin, who generally prefers more directional skis with mount points around -10 to -7 cm from center. So if you’re coming from directional skis but are interested in the Completo 100 because of its maneuverability, there might be a bit of an initial learning curve.

2024-2025 Folsom Completo 100, BLISTER
Kristin Sinnott on the Folsom Completo 100 (Crested Butte Mountain Resort, CO)

My personal favorite skis include everything from very directional, traditional carvers to center-mounted pow sticks, and I got along just fine with the Completo 100’s recommended mount point (about -7 cm from center on our 186 cm length).

Getting back to playfulness, the Completo 100 checks most of the boxes. It’s loose / surfy, pretty balanced overall, energetic, and has a low swing weight. It also skis switch well and can be a fun all-mountain-freestyle option for those who like to slash, spin, and butter around the mountain. I probably wouldn’t pick it for frequent laps through the park when the snow is very firm, but otherwise, it’s generally very playful and freestyle-friendly.


Folsom offers nearly infinite length options for their full-custom skis, while the pre-built Signature Series version of the Completo 100 is currently offered in 156, 174, and 186 cm lengths.

For reference, I’m 5’8”, 155 lbs (173 cm, 70 kg) and I typically prefer skis in the ~100mm-wide all-mountain category in lengths ranging from 177 to 190 cm. With that context in mind, it came as little surprise that the 186 cm Completo 100 felt pretty spot-on for me in terms of length. I could probably go a bit longer to get a tad more stability, but if stability is what you’re after, you should probably be starting with a different ski.

(Check out our GEAR 101 video and article on ski length for more on the factors that contribute to how long a given ski feels when you’re actually skiing it, and why you might want to size up or down on a particular model.)

Who’s It For?

The Completo 100 warrants a close look if you want a versatile all-mountain ski that really stands out for its maneuverability, quickness, accessibility, and playfulness.

This isn’t the ski I’d recommend if you want to lay down hard carves on icy groomers, nor is it ideal for charging through chop, crud, and other variable conditions.

However, the Completo 100 is a great choice if you spend a lot of time in tight off-piste terrain and want something that’s agile and easy there, but that you can still ski fairly hard in more open terrain when conditions aren’t super firm or rough.

Bottom Line

The Folsom Completo 100 is a particularly maneuverable and nimble ski that, for people who prioritize those traits in their all-mountain skis, can still be a lot of fun in a wide range of conditions and terrain.

  1. Folsom constructed a pair of Completos (171cm, 100mm underfoot; I put Marker Griffon bindings on them) for me (advanced skier, 63 years, 5′-7″) in 2015 and they are still going strong … the construction is impeccable. The tip and tail rocker is similar to that shown above. An expert skier friend (mid-30’s, 5′-10″) uses the same pair more than I do (same boot size!) and he has taken them up on the triple-black north-facing hiking-accessed Stillwater Bowl runs off of the Challenger 3 / Headwaters 2 lifts at Big Sky Resort, Montana. They work great everywhere else on the mountain, too.
