The Curated Take

By the Expert Community

I have been in love with the QST series since the start. I am a huge fan of the no-nonsense mid-flex and beefy feel. It feels substantial in the best way. That confidence-inspiring feel, added to the playful shape, allows any skier to feel ultimate control. They have added cork in the tips to minimize chatter and make some torsional changes, there is a difference since this change, for the better.

I've skied it at multiple mount points as well. I have found recommended mount points are best but can be really enjoyed at -4 back from core center mount. It skis really evenly, you can ski it neutral, forward, and a bit back seat, and it stays a blast. Oh, and you can go switch!

I've got 2 pairs of these. One for the resort and one with a pin binding. It. is. that. good.

I have tried 100's of skis, I am a sucker for time and true constructions of wood core, carbon stringers, full sidewalls, and a mid-high turn radius. Mix that with their shape, and you have a recipe for endless stoke-filled days on the hill.

Did I mention it's really, really good?

If you are an ex-racer, someone who loves some metal in the ski and wants your shred sleds to feel very alive underfoot, try it, but maybe look elsewhere. The dampness of the QST may feel sluggish to some.

If you are a skier who likes something lighter all around, this might not be the ticket either.

Ideal for
  • Someone who likes a really fun mid-flex ski, plays and charges with the best of them.
  • Best for skiers who want a really predictable ski.
  • Someone who wants a real one-ski-quiver.
Not ideal for
  • It is on the heavy side.
  • Skiers feel the mid-flex when pushing it really really hard.
  • The turn radius is larger than some skis in this category.

The Salomon QST 106 is a free ride oriented ski that shines in deep snow and off-piste conditions, while still having plenty of hard snow capabilities to function as a great daily driver on the west coast, or for advanced skiers who prioritize powder and off trail performance. 106mm underfoot, with a long tapered rocker in the tips and tails, this ski is made to conquer deep snow and big mountain lines with confidence. With added Carbon, flax, and titanal they have precise handling and easy turn initiation, making them playful over the entire mountain.

Key Features:

  • Poplar Wood Core – Salomon build the QST line around a full Poplar wood core. This creates a lively and stable ski that helps minimize vibrations.
  • Cork Damplifier and C/FX – In addition to the Poplar wood core, Salomon adds cork in the tips and tails to help further reduce chatter, and use a layer of blended Carbon and Flax materials through the ski to increase torsional stiffness and stability at speed.
  • TI Binding Reinforcement – Titanal is added edge to edge in the center of the ski to increase edge grip and carving performance without adding unnecessary weight.
  • Full Sandwich Sidewalls – Full length sidewalls, with added high density ABS material underfoot, maximizes hard snow performance and edge grip through the camber of the ski.

Baddest MF in the Bizness
5 /5
As a first timer trying to figure out my new snowboarding fit and gear, I was lost and didn’t have the time or heart to figure it out. Here comes Bobby, he walked me through the whole process down to tech specs, best fit for purpose and skill level, and most importantly the sickest look I could’ve ever put together. Very grateful for the experience and hats off to Bobby 🤙🏾

Elizabeth made life so much easier!
5 /5
I was hesitant to use this website and service thinking it was going to be more of a sales pitch platform but boy was I wrong! Not having a clue on what to purchase for my two kids and for myself, Elizabeth made a stressful, overwhelming experience EASY. I answered basic questions, gave her my budget and she recommended 1-3 options for me to choose from! Ordering three sets of skis, boots and poles would have taken me months to determine “the right ones” but with Elizabeth I ordered all three packages in one evening, at great discount prices and will be here in time for Christmas to put huge smiles on my children’s faces. I highly recommend this service, more companies should do what Curated does! Thanks again Elizabeth 🖤

Matthew was super helpful. He asked a lot of questions and provided incredibly valuable insight. He made the entire process stress-free. Without his help it would have taken hours of research to figure out which skis to buy for my son. This was a great experience. Matthew went above and beyond to help me find the perfect skis.

Soren is awesome!
5 /5
He was very helpful and replied fairly quickly! It made the shopping process way easier. I am a totally knew to skiing. So his help was greatly appreciated. The only thing that may have made my decision making process easier would be if Soren provided some background on the suggested brands when he made the recommendations. I was just so new that I didn’t know what I was looking at
