  • FlotationImpressive flotation, top of the pack in its category.
Good for
  • PlayfulnessOffers a nice balance of playfulness and stability.
  • CarvingDecent at carving, but doesn't stand out.

The Salomon QST 98 is back this season with a slightly more freestyle design, while still be able to handle high speed skiing and do well on hard snow. This ski is made for advanced skiers who want access to the whole mountain and performance in all conditions. Reinforced with carbon, flax, and titanal, the QST 98 is stable and damp at high speeds and can hold its edge well. 98mm underfoot with decent rocker in the tips and tails, this ski shines off-piste, in the trees and powder, and really allows skiers to push limits on and off the trails.

Key Features:

  • C/FX and Cork Damplifier – Salomon adds a full layer of blended carbon and flax to the ski, along with cork in the tips and tails to keep the ski very damp without excess weight. The cork in the tips/tails helps prevent chatter at high speeds, while the C/FX layer increases torsional stiffness and stability throughout the body of the ski.
  • TI Binding Reinforcement – A section of Titanal is added edge to edge in the center section of the ski to really increase energy transference and stability underfoot, especially when carving and getting the ski on edge.
  • Full Sandwich Sidewalls – Using full sidewalls through the entire ski, the edge grip is greatly increased and also creates a more precise skiing experience for more technical terrain.

Tommy was beyond helpful!
5 /5
I was completely overwhelmed with trying to find the right ski gear. I recently switched from snowboarding to skiing, so I understand the importance of buying the right gear for your skill level. Tommy was so helpful and didn’t make me feel silly for asking questions. Also, he nailed the recommendations right off the bat. He found options at and surprisingly below my budget. I can’t wait to hit the slopes! Thank you, Tommy!

Awesome experience from an awesome guy!
5 /5
I originally had some boards in mind and after talking to Ben I realized that my selection was no where near what I needed for the way I ride. He hooked me up with some great recommendations and answered all of the many questions I had along the way. I highly recommend asking Ben about anything snowboard related, he’s very knowledgeable and definitely knows his stuff!

Cute and Functional Recommendations
5 /5
One of my main constraints of shopping for a board was that I wanted a cute design. Cody went above and beyond finding me a board that would work for me, laid out multiple options and talked in depth about how each option would fit into my riding style. Cody picked out the ladies choice, which has been a phenomenal board so far, and I'm excited to continue riding it into the season.

Shannon provided some awesome service. Super friendly and very helpful. Can tell she knows her stuff about skis. We need more people like Shannon in the retail industry. Definitely came away from our chat with peace of mind and some sick product recs. Give Shannon 7 days paid vacation to go shred she deserves it :)
