 Overview
 

The new Salomon QST 106 makes an excellent and very versatile ski for the advanced to expert skier that never knows where the day will head for them on the mountain. The 106mm waist floats in deep snow, feels very nimble through the trees, and can carve any turn shape you want to do on a groomer. A Hook Free Taper prevents your tips and tails from getting hooked up in the deep snow. A Koroyd Insert in the tip and tail increase the maneuverability and playfulness of the ski by lowering the swingweight and pulling extra weight away from the extremities. A Ti Power Platform adds extra retention for the binding screws, with a little extra power in the mid-body of the ski. Salomon's CFX Superfiber keeps the ski amazingly lightweight, but strong and powerful. The beauty of the QST 106 is the fact that you can ski it full throttle, but you can finesse the ski around the mountain as well in any type of snow condition with ease.

A true do everything ski
Comments:
I have been fortunate enough to spend quite a few days on the QST 106 already in conditions ranging from ice to powder, at resorts with as little as 220 vert and as much as 3000. To date I have yet to find a single thing this ski does not excel at. It is super easy to control at low speed on low angle slopes teaching kids, rails turns on hard packed at speed (does require aggressive angulation, but any ski this wide will), nimble in the bumps, and manages to be a combination of powerful and surfy in powder. This ski is on the leading edge of a new style of skis that not only excels under the feet of an advanced to expert level skier but can take an intermediate skier from cautious on trail skier to an all mountain ripper without ever being too much ski. The QST 106, simply put, is a super fun ski that won't disappoint.

Q: I demoed a pair of QST 99 in Tahoe and loved them, although I think they were a bit short (167). The more I read around, I'm thinking i might like the QST 106 more. I'm 5' 8", 160 - 165 lbs, and love steeps, trees, groomers, pow, bumps, you name it. I'm an expert skier tho not as aggressive (particularly in bumps) as I used to be (age: 53). But I ski hard. I want that one do-it-all ski. Suggestions on 99 vs. 106 and length?

A:Based on your weight, ability, location and preferred terrain, the QST 106 in a 174cm would be the optimal ski and length for you. Especially in Tahoe the wider footprint provides more stability and control.

Q: Hey I'm 5'8", 170lbs intermediate/advanced skier looking at the QST 106s for about 70% backcountry/30% resort use. They'll be mounted with Dynafit Radical ST 2.0 bindings. If it was only resort skiing I would ski the 181cm no question, but I'm thinking the 174cm might be more manageable on the skin track and in tight trees. Which size sounds better?

A:Based on your weight, ability, location and what you are looking to do with the ski I would recommend the 181cm. Having a bit easier of a skin would sacrifice lots of floatation and stability in that deep Tahoe pow.

Q: Hi, 5'11" advanced skier who loves off piste, but spends a lot of time with the young family on groomers. Demo'd the QST 99 and absolutly loved them, wondering about the 106 waist and how different they are on the groomers. are they nearly as versatile in the turns if you push them a little bit? For a One Ski Quiver in Tahoe, would you lean more towards 99 or 106 waist???

A:The 106 is just a tiny bit slower edge to edge than the 99 is. Based on your location and snowfall (especially this season) the 106 would be the way to go for a one ski quiver.

Q: I live in the HEART of Colorado ski country at 9000' and for the life of me cannot locate a demo for this ski! Any ideas? Also for an old school 207 cm guy at 190# with big GS turns and LOVE for stability would i go 181 or 188? Currently ski on an old Rossi B4 skiing with Garmont AT boot in 178 which have never felt stable in anything other than corduroy.

A:I do not know of any places that would have this demo available. The QST skis are pretty popular this season. Based on your weight, ability, aggressiveness and location I would recommend the 188cm.

Q: Hi, im 6"2", 230 lb, intermediate skier - fly down blues and can nagivate blacks without too much trouble. I'm demo'ing the 181 cm, but wonder if the 188 would be better to "grow into". Currently ski Salomon Q98 with 182cm length and thinking the QST106 will help me in pow with control and confidence.

A:The extra length of the 188cm is more suitable for your weight and ability. The more surface area will give you better stability and control.

Q: Hi; I'm 6'2" (188cm), 240 pounds; strong intermediate to advanced. Fairly aggressive. Like to ski 50/50, like trees and pop off things. (Western Canada). Would I overwhelm the 181? Should I be on the 188?

A:The 188 all day, I'm pretty much the same height/weight as you and have put 10 days on my 188's already. This ski requires way less effort to maneuver than you would expect and the extra surface area is really beneficial off trail without making it so you have to fight the skis.

Q: Hi, I am 5'9'', 185 LB. Like to be aggressive in the bumps, no more big one, 62 years old, still skiing my 187 X-screams, which I have really enjoyed. Would you recommend the 181 or the 174's. thanks
Asked : Dec 27, 2016
By : Will, Parker, CO
Know the answer? Answer this question
 
A:Given the rocker profile and taper in the tip/tail these ski on the shorter side for their length. The 181 would be the shortest I would go at your weight and height. If you have not had much experience with wider skis in the 100mm waist range and above you may actually be happier with the QST 99 in a 181 as it will be quicker edge to edge on firm snow and in bumps, but still very versatile in soft snow and crud.
