The Curated Take

By the Expert Community

The QST Pro 106's are a great pair of skis for a range of skier types from intermediate through advanced abilities. The first thing that I noticed when I hopped on the 181cm skis was their maneuverability and playfulness. These skis really respond well to exactly where you want to take them down the hill, and I especially enjoyed them in glades and trees where quick maneuvers are often required.

I'm 5'11" and a pretty aggressive skier with a race background, so I felt like the 189cm ski would have been a bit more suitable for me due to the freeride rocker profile, but with that said, I still had a great time on the 181cm skis and felt like they were stable enough at high speeds and very playful in off-piste terrain and packed powder.

Another attribute that was noticeable after a few runs was how surprisingly lightweight they were. These would likely be a good option for an AT ski that could save some weight on uphill touring while not compromising performance & stability for the downhill. And being 106 underfoot with tip & tail rocker definitely helps the skis float on top of powder and crud!

I previously owned a pair of 2018 Salomon QST 106's, and I feel like the 2024 model has made some significant improvements, including a beefier ski that's better for charging down the hill and a ski that's more versatile in various conditions except for super hardpack groomers & ice.

Ideal for
  • Stable Sturdy Ski
  • Nice float in soft snow & deep powder
  • Responsive & Energetic
Not ideal for
  • Harder to carve on firmer hardpack snow
  • Less forgiving on firm terrain

The icon of Salomon’s QST line, the QST 106 is a favorite across the world. This year, we revamped the ski's shape, complimenting the classic QST layup that you rely on for power and stability. The result? A ski that does it all with style and finesse - no matter the snow, no matter the terrain. Go ahead, make the mountain your playground.

Daniela was very good at incorporating her experiences with equipment to answer my questions. She was very responsive to my concerns and all of the interactions were helpful. She knows the Curated resources very well and also shared many of those throughout my search. I highly recommend her.

Alex is the best!!! 💯🙌🏻
5 /5
I’m brand new to snowboarding (but have done other board sports🏄🏻‍♀️🛹) and know nothing about snowboarding! I’m so thankful for Alex because he was able to find me the perfect board, bindings and boots - all within my budget! He also was able to answer all my questions and get back to me fast! On top of which he checked on me after I received my products to ensure everything fit right and was to my liking which I really appreciate! 😊 Lastly he reminded me of my credits that I had from my first purchase and recommend multiple options for things I can spend it on that are easily forgotten about when your new to snowboarding (even though they’re kinda important - such as gloves, goggles, travel case, etc). Definitely will be recommending Alex to all my friends who are interested in getting into snowboarding and for other friends who are planning on changing snowboards but not sure what is best for them! And for sure will be a returning client - when it’s time to change my gear! 😊🏂

Ethan was fantastic
5 /5
I was doing my own research and it was exhausting to be honest. Saw a youtube video and decided to give this a try. Thank goodness I did. Ethan pointed me in the right direction and even recommended some things I was already interested in. Was able to purchase with confidence and that goes a long way. Good looking out Ethan
