The new Salomon QST Myriad 85 is a great ski for the beginner to strong intermediate that is looking for an easy to ride ski that will help them build confidence on any type of terrain that they will feel comfortable going down. An 85mm waist is wide enough to roll over crud and variable snow conditions on the front side of the mountain. Salomon's All-Terrain Rocker 2.0 has a rockered tip that will help you initiate turns easier, camber underfoot that keeps you stable in the middle of your turn, and rocker in the tail that releases the ski from turns easier. A Hook Free Taper will help prevent your tips and tails from getting caught up in the snow. Salomon's Power Transfer Platform has a stronger construction under the binding mounting area that gives you more energy underfoot, while the rest of the ski remains softer and more forgiving. A Semi-Sandwich Construction allows you to be more maneuverable by having a Monocoque Cap construction in the tips and tails, while a sidewall underfoot delivers stronger edge hold on firmer conditions. If you are a beginner to strong intermediate looking for a ski that will help make skiing in challenging conditions the Salomon QST Myriad 85 is a great choice for you.
