The following is a quick overview of the 2022 Salomon snowboards lineup.
First I will look at any new boards for the 2021-22 season, and any old 2020-21 boards that aren't returning with a 2021 model.
Then I'll place each board into the categories where I see them fitting best.

The new boards for 2021-22 are:

The 2021 boards that aren't returning with a 2022 model:
All 2022 Salomon Snowboards by Category
I have categorized Salomon's 2021-22 collection below. This is according to the categories here at SnowboardingProfiles.com and not necessarily the same as how Salomon might label them.
Of course these are only broad categories as every board is different, but this is a rough guide.
SALOMON BEGINNER SNOWBOARDS
SALOMON PARK/FREESTYLE SNOWBOARDS
SALOMON ALL-MOUNTAIN-FREESTYLE SNOWBOARDS
SALOMON AGGRESSIVE ALL-MTN-FREESTYLE SNOWBOARDS
SALOMON ALL-MOUNTAIN SNOWBOARDS
SALOMON AGGRESSIVE ALL-MOUNTAIN SNOWBOARDS
SALOMON FREERIDE SNOWBOARDS
SALOMON POWDER & SHORT/WIDE SNOWBOARDS
SALOMON SPLIT BOARDS
SALOMON YOUTH SNOWBOARDS
So there you have the 2022 Salomon snowboards.
A few boards exit, with only one real new board.
Out with the Old
The Gypsy Pro, 6 Piece, Speedway and Wolle Nyvelt 159 are all gone. The Villan Grom and Gypsy Grom area also out, but essentially replaced by the Sleepwalker Grom and Oh Yeah Grom.
In with the New
With the Sleepwalker Grom and Oh Yeah Grom essentially just replacing the outgoing Villain Grom and Gypsy Grom, the only true newbie is the HPS Louif Paradis.
Changes for Existing Models
- HPS Takaharu Nakai gets something called "Damplifier Lite" which I can only assume is supposed to help with dampening
- HPS Wolle Nyvelt: Addition of Bamboo + cork rails
- Assassin Pro looks to no longer jave the 165 size (the regular Assassin still has a 165 though)
Otherwise everything else seems to be as they were in 2021, but with different graphics, of course.
