Here is a classic, do-it-all ski from Salomon—and it returns slightly tweaked for 2021. The 106-millimeter width underfoot on the Salomon QST 106 will carry you anywhere on the mountain and the updated, more forgiving flex pattern ensures a nimble ride. Inside, a carbon fiber/flax/basalt weave layered atop a poplar wood core and cork inserts in the tip and tail help this ski stay lively yet damp, shining in piste-style terrain. This year’s Salomon QST 106 successfully builds on years of design to bring back a ski for skiers who want to blend freeride and freestyle tendencies.
FREESKIER tester thoughts:
“For a wider ski, it was exceptionally stable while carving big, deep, fast turns. It powered through softer snow effortlessly, and made skiing crud easy as well. It feels light but stiff, which was great.”
