Many ladies love the Salomon Q-83 Myriad! The Myriad is designed to be a well rounded all mountain tool for the adventurous beginner to solid intermediate that challenge themselves on the mountain. The Full Woodcore will provide you with stability as you explore the mountain at a variety of speeds with a snappy feeling as you slice short to medium radius turns. Made with a Semi-Sandwich Construction the Myriad has a Monocoque Cap Construction in the tips and tails that enhance the easy maneuvering, and stability. Vertical Sidewalls under the binding mounting platform give you a firm grip on the hard snow. Salomon's Utility Rocker has ability to help you float in deep snow, makes steering easier, and gives you the ability to attempt some off trail runs if the conditions are just right. The Q-83 is made with a Hook Free Taper that will make skiing in deeper snow easier for you by not getting caught up in the deep stuff, and allows you to slide around the mountain easier. If you are a true beginner that will improve quickly, or an intermediate looking to explore different types of terrain a set of Salomon Q-83 Myriad will take you to different heights.
Wide waist makes it a bit difficult to grasp both with one hand (if you have smaller hands as I do)

Fun and fast!
I've taken advantage of the massive snowfall in NM this winter (2015-16) and finally upgraded my equipment to these beauties. So far, they are fast and super-responsive on-piste and groomers. I can carve sweeping, wide, graceful turns and short, quick, sharp turns whenever I want and do so very easily while looking like a pro. The wide tip and tail enable me to have fun and the double rocker tips make skiing backwards a breeze (with caution) while watching my little girl follow my tracks on powder-capped catwalks and gentle slopes. I have a feeling that these would float like a whisper over fresh pow, and I'm looking forward to trying them out on large moguls next weekend. Basically, this is a really pretty ski (love the color) that practically turns itself and brings you along for the ride. Super-fun and highly recommended.
Hi, I'm Brigitte. I just got off the Salomon Quest Ski. I give this a 3.5 out of 5 stars. It was a little bit heavy for me but it would be good for a beginner, slightly intermediate. It is good on the powder and I felt like the turns were pretty easy to come by so I give this a 3.5 by 5 stars.
Hi, I'm Annie and I just rode the Salomon Myriad Q83. It's a beginner ski. I'm going to give it a 5 out of 5. It is an all-mountain ski, beginner. It will even advance into the intermediate. It can pick up some speed and still have some good stability. The short turns snow plowing were really stable, really nice. It will advance from the very beginner skier well into taking ya'll over the mountain. Again, I give it a 5 out of 5.
Hi, my name is Marcia. I just got off the Salomon Myriad. I give this ski a 4 out of 5 stars. I think it's really good for intermediate skier. It's the type of ski that will allow you to pick up some speed, to challenge your skills, to take them to a higher level. It held the turns really well. I felt I had good control and good stability on this ski. Again, 4 out of 5 stars. Great for intermediate skier.
Hi, I'm Jessica and I just got off the Salomon Q83 Myriad. I give this ski a 4.5 out of 5 stars. It's going to be a great ski for the beginner moving into intermediate and then wants to advance even more. It's going to be a great all-mountain ski. Today we've got varying conditions. It popped through the crud perfectly. It held a great edge at speed. Seemed to like the more medium to longer turns. The short ones, it got a little shaky on me but, again, 4.5 out of 5 stars.
