The Salomon QST 106 wears more faces than the many-faced god. Oh, sorry, did you somehow miss Game of Thrones? Let us explain: Salomon has re-done its flagship lineup of skis several times in the last few years. We liked each model they replaced, and each one was pretty dang versatile. But with each iteration of the QST, the skis just keep getting better. Now for 2019-2020, the QST 106 hits the town with a sexy oil green topsheet along with several other changes. There's more rocker than there used to be (just check out the aggressive tail rocker that reminds us of the QST 118). There's also vibration-damping cork inserts in the tips plus a blend of carbon, basalt, flax, and fiberglass. The construction makes these the smoothest-skiing QSTs ever. The QST 106 loves hunting powder, but it doesn't punish you if you don't find it. Salomon reworked the taper, making it shorter, to allow for smoother skiing in mixed snow and better edge grip. These skis are super-easy to link up, whether you're sampling groomers or charging back bowls. We love the QST 106 as an easy-skiing daily driver in the West and a ski for powder-hunters out East. Before you ski them, though, catch up on Game of Thrones. Seriously. Similar skis: Kastle FX106 HP, Rossignol Soul 7 HD, Black Crows Atris.
