New for 2013/2014, the 105 rounds out the Quest series in terms of waist width, flanked by the wider Q-115 and the narrower Q-98. Testers gave the 105 (105 millimeters underfoot) high scores for playfulness and lower marks for stability. “Not the most versatile ski in the line up, but it’s a dream for the park skier hitting the big mountain,” said Dittmar. Tech features include a full wood core, Salomon’s Edgy Monocoque construction, a stiff rockered tail and a honeycomb pattern in the rockered tip designed for dampening and flotation. “Not quite wide enough to be my first choice for powder, but it’s a light, fun and quick ski and best for shorter turns,” Witman said.
