The Salomon QST 106 skis would be a great daily driver ski for most western skiers, and a great soft snow/powder ski for easterners. With a waist width of 106-millimeters underfoot, these skis are designed to float, pivot and smear in powder, but with camber underfoot, they can also carve once things dry up and the snow becomes firm. Built with a Poplar wood core, Salomon also adds their C/FX technology which is a combination of Carbon and Flax fibers which provide added strength and stability to the ski but also keep it fairly light weight. At the end of the day, you get a highly versatile ski for being in the 106-waist width category, that is both agile, strong and surfy. If you are looking for a ski that is highly versatile in a wide range of terrain and snow conditions, the Salomon QST 106 is a very well-rounded ski that feels right at home in powder, crud and mixed terrain.
