“This is a fun, light and responsive ski that’s decent in soft snow and can still carve on the hard pack,” Dittmar said of the 89 millimeter-waisted Quest 90. The narrowest ski in Salomon’s All-Mountain backside Quest line received its highest scores for playfulness. Testers recommend it for those who like a ski that’s soft flexing and easy to steer. Our bigger testers felt it was fun to ski, but that it lacked power because of softness. Construction and tech details favor intermediate through advanced skiers as the core is made of lightweight wood. Tip rocker and the early rise tail add forgiveness and a hook-free taper adds maneuverability through soft snow.
