Salomon’s lightweight QST 106 provides all the maneuverability you’ll ever need in soft snow. The QST 106 is so forgiving and simple to ski, a low intermediate could hop on and be happy. “A big-day ski that can be an everyday pick,” is how Bob Gleason pegged its performance. “Smooth yet easy at low speed. A great all-around ski.”

A patch of Titanal underfoot reinforces edge hold on hard snow, but otherwise the Salomon QST 106’s behavior is driven by an end-to-end web of carbon and flax over an all-wood core. Without the mass of either full-length metal laminates or fiberglass, the QST 106 can feel as quick to corner as a Porsche or it can drift through a lazy arc like it has bald tires.
