Nimble All-mountain one-ski quiver

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Just spent a week in St Anton, Austria with these in conditions from hardpack to ice to 8" of fresh powder, and they handled all of them with ease. A light ski with superior maneuverability, good dampening, and ability to handle chop make this a ski I wish I had years ago.

I did not take these above 40mph(GPS tracked), so I can't comment at blistering speed chatter, but for me I did not experience ANY negative aspects.

Coming from a heavy setup of Line Prophet 98's with Marker Griffons, it's like I ditched a small child off my feet while hitting moguls and trees. The smile on my face was there all day long.

If it snowed anything more than 10" I'd have wanted a wider setup, but for 90% of most skiing days, this will do it all.

These skis are so much fun!!
If you live out west and want one set of skis that can do it all, you need to take a very close look at the QST 99. I have been out in every condition thus far this season here in Utah and these have not let me down once.
The early rise in the tips gives you nice float in the powder and the moderate 99mm waist feeds on the crud.
If you are looking for a powder ski, get a powder ski. But if you want want a fun set of skis that you can ski everyday, give these a shot!

Dad the shredder is hyped!

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

My dad is the greatest. Really wanted to spoil him this Christmas with some new sticks and these were the perfect choice! Here is what he had to say: "What a difference a ski makes! After spending several years on a 91 cm all mountain ski, we thought it was time for an upgrade, and boy were we right! I'd classify myself as an above average intermediate skier, spending about equal time on and off piste. This ski performs amazingly in both places. It is easy to turn, carves great and floats like a cork in the (not too deep)powder. The conditions it really helps me in is when I'm skiing the crud, so much easier to turn than my old pair. It is a bit slower turning on the groomers, but the ease of the turn more that makes up for that."

But can they tele?

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Put a pair of telemark bindings on these to use as my inbound ski. They cut through through the NW crap and cut up terrain no problem, and can still hold a decent edge on the icy, scrape sidehill.
I'm also impressed by how the camber gives a little pop at the crux of your tele turn that immediately assists your transition. Amazing little skis.

All Mountain Monster

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Once I tested this ski, I didn’t want to try anything else. I am a big fan of 95-100mm waist widths and this hit the goldilocks point: Just Right. With the 130mm Shovel, I felt like I could tackle any conditions (save deep powder), even the icy groomers that we encountered earlier in the day. However, it really excelled in variable conditions (i.e. chop) and buzz sawed through anything that came in its way. Would definitely recommend to someone looking for an all mountain ski you could ride the whole season long.

All Mountain Money!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Super fun all over the mountain, great on groomers, chatter/choppy, fresh snow(not the deep stuff), ice, and the techy tree runs. Edge hold is really good. These are a solid 1 and done ski as they do pretty good in most conditions.

Groomer Cruiser

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Really liking these skis so far. They are a very stable ski in all conditions and are great for the variety of conditions you may find.

They are easily controlled on the groomers and still feel great in the powder as well. Very happy with the choice and would highly recommend these skis to anyone who is getting into the skiing game or for a skier who is looking to upgrade from their current ski.

Love these skis

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

My husband bought these--Here is what he has to say--"Just got back into skiing after 10 years and wanted to upgrade my gear. These skis are great. I am an intermediate skier and used these on ice, slush and powder. They performed great on all. The always feel solid under foot and turn well. Good all around ski as advertised."

Your Quest Ends Here

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

If you're looking for an all mountain ski to perform in variable conditions... this is it. Got to ski this at a demo last year when conditions were.... less than ideal.... but I still had a blast.

Salomon uses 3 major technologies in this ski to make it really fun to ski. The Spaceframe layout uses softer materials at the tips/tails with progressively stiffer materials as we move inwards toward the Ti Power Platform which is a titanium plate underfoot to increase edgeholding, power-transfer, and rigidity. But the coolest technology is the CFX laminate which uses carbon for lightweight stiffness and flax fibers to reduce the "jitter" that carbon can introduce. Yeah. Flax Fibers.

And the thing works! Super fun and smile-inducing when you get it on edge, but I'd argue it's even better in softer patches. Edges aren't catchy, the tips don't dive, great float, but still easy to maneuver like a 99-waist should be.

Was really impressed with the performance of this ski, and as an added benefit it's light enough that it won't hurt when you hike to hidden stashes with them.

Give me a call if you're excited about this skis; I love to talk skiing!
