Salomon QST Stella 106 Skis 2017-2018
Salomon’s QST Stella 106 excels in all conditions, all over the mountain. Our testers were blown away with this ski’s versatility first and foremost; whoops of joy came while testers were chest-deep in powder, weaving through tight trees or ripping down perfect corduroy. “They hold their own while charging through chunder yet are still plenty soft to get groovy with,” said one tester. Salomon employs a mid-weight, snappy poplar core along with carbon and flax to bring about a damp, responsive ski that doesn’t bog you down weight-wise. Combined with traditional camber underfoot and rocker in the tip and tail for optimal carving and maneuverability, respectively, this thing is equipped to conquer every inch of the mountain.
