Read the Review Transcript: Hey. It's Hunter here. Just got off the Q98 from Salomon and this is a 5 star ski for me. I gave it 5 stars because it's so smooth it feels like surfing. For your advanced skier that wants something that's just buttery all the way through a turn. It's not jarring, it's not aggressive. There's not a ton of rebound energy but it still holds an edge like no other. Great choice for your smooth all-mountain skier.
