    “With the MTN binding, Salomon kept it super simple, creating a sleek, sturdy and easy to use tech binding. The MTN’s machined aluminum construction makes the binding sturdy and powerful on the down yet still light enough on the up. From Greenland to B.C. to the volcanoes of the PNW, I’ve used the MTN everywhere.‰

    Manufacturer's Description

    “I value the same traits in my skis on every mountain, around the world. The lighter and more nimble they are, the safer I can be and the more fun I can have. At 1400g, the 177cm’s are my daily driver. Their versatility is enhanced by an all-terrain shape and I can feel how the C/FX keeps them damp and stable whether I’m skiing blue ice, avalanche debris, powder, or corn. Because truthfully, I never know what I’m going to throw at them.‰

    MTN LAB

    $950.00

    BUY NOW

    Manufacturer's Description

    Unchanged from its debut in 2016, the Salomon MTN Lab continues to be the boot of choice for many backcountry skiers for its low weight and high performance. And yet, it is also the boot of choice for many skiers who charge the resort and take regular forays beyond the boundary. It’s that powerful; it’s that lightweight. The Salomon MTN Lab’s oversized pivot, 98-millimeter last with 120 flex, and forward lean based off the X-Max series give it superb downhill capabilities, and the 1,500-gram weight and quick transition Surelock mechanism is incredibly smooth on the skin track. The stock moldable liner is best in its class, and with a few fine-tune tweaks delivers the best one-boot quiver in the industry. —Erme Catino

    QST 106

    BUY NOW

    Manufacturer's Description

    The Salomon QST 106 is a driver, but easy to ski. It’s stable, but also quick on the turn. It’s fun and poppy, but when you want to crank the speed, it’s ready for you.

    Unchanged in its construction and design from last year’s award-winning model, Salomon’s QST series is a top choice among the Powder Union. “This beauty can be driven aggressively across all kinds of snow.” says Editor at Large Matt Hansen. “I would have no qualms riding this ski every day at my home mountain.” South Lake Tahoe skier Tyler Bradford echoes the same feeling. “The more I ski this ski, the more I like them. It does everything well and is easy to shut down speed.”

    I found them to be a surprisingly ideal choice for a powder day inbounds. They cruise through the untracked and are super easy to turn in the deep. And after the ski resort gets tracked out, the QSTs have the power and drive to cut through the chop, rather than bounce around like a more rockered ski does.

    Using the same construction as its sister, the Stella 106, the QST is made with a Spaceframe wood core, milled to lighten the ski. An edge-to-edge sheet of titanal extends beyond the mounting zone, and a layer of Salomon’s carbon-flax blend rounds out the construction to deliver a responsive yet solid, poppy yet driving, balanced ride for the every day and every condition. —Julie Brown

    QST 118

    $900.00

    BUY NOW

    Manufacturer's Description

    The widest ski in Salomon’s lineup, the QST 118 will make you wish the snow is deeper. Always, deeper. The full twin rocker is designed to help you float in the deepest powder. The Spaceframe construction uses carbon and flax to give the QST 118 the stiffness and strength of a metal ski, but not the weight. Essentially, at 1980 grams per ski, it’s a light ski that doesn’t actually ski like a light ski. “The ride is smooth and damp, while a more forward mount point allows easy maneuvering and the early rise prevents the tip from getting buried without making me feel like I was doing a wheely,” said Kade Krichko, who took the QST 118 down Big Sky’s Big Couloir. “I was kind of gripped, but my first two or three turns were quick and they handled just fine in a lot of different conditions, and I didn’t feel tip chatter at all, even though I could see it.”

    The Union found the sporty sidecut a bit hooky, and with a 26 meter radius, the QST 118 needs room for big turns—exactly the kind you want to make on the deepest day of the year, and not so much though tight couloirs or trees. —Sierra Davis

    QST 99

    $725.00

    BUY NOW

    Manufacturer's Description

    Late afternoon, legs are tired, powder is gone, beer sounds good. But come August, you’re going to be wishing you could go skiing, no matter the conditions. So you might as well take advantage. If you have the Salomon QST 99 underfoot, that beer can wait till after last chair.

    This ski will surprise you with its strength and agility, as it did me. At first impression, I had pegged the QST 99 (as well as the 106) as a forgiving waif built for mellow cruising. My bad, because the QST is anything but. With a single layer of Titanal, the QST has a 3D milled wood core to reduce weight without compromising stability, with reinforcement and pop provided by a carbon flax blend. A lightweight koroyd tip keeps swing weight low and minimizes tip flap, resulting in an extremely fun ski that’s right at home ripping shady couloirs, bump lines, and hot laps off your favorite chair. The edgehold is excellent even at high speeds, and the rebound out of a turn will keep you relishing every second down the hill.

    At Big Sky, I took the QST 99 into the steep, north-facing couloirs of the Headwaters, where the snow had the velvety feel of a pool table, with low vis and plenty of pepper to keep me on my toes. With such a powerful, nimble ski underfoot, I was thrilled with how fast I could drive it, without fear of washing out. In successive turns, I could load the ski to spray a giant rooster tail without experiencing any chatter, then easily hop over a jagged rock before driving a narrow line between bumps and trees. The ski never felt like a burden, and we continued to party ski long after the sun had dipped below Lone Peak.

    Though I would personally choose something wider for powder days, I’d certainly want the QST 99 available during spells of high pressure to keep things light, fun, and fast. —Matt Hansen

    QST Stella 106

    $850.00

    BUY NOW

    Manufacturer's Description

    Salomon knows you don’t mess with a good thing. Which is why the Stella 106 (which uses the exact same construction as the unisex QST 106 in shorter sizes and with a different top sheet) is back this year unchanged from last year’s debut model. I fell hard for this model last year and I’m not surprised to see it rise to the top of the pack for the second year in a row. Above all, this hard-charging and versatile ski gives me the confidence to take on any type of terrain.

    Made with a light Spaceframe wood core fortified with an edge-to-edge sheet of titanal that extends beyond the mounting zone and a layer of Salomon’s carbon-flax blend, the Stella 106 is extremely responsive and solid underfoot. Initiating turns is nearly effortless. It moves seamlessly from edge to edge. But it’s no soft noodle. Instead, the Stella 106 is perfectly weighted.

    Because Salomon engineered the Stella 106 to easily dump speed, and hold a strong edge even in icy steeps, I was comfortable skiing more aggressively at Big Sky on this ski than anything else. The lightweight construction keeps them up top on powder days, yet they are stable enough I don’t get any chatter when it has been a while since the last storm. At 106-millimeters underfoot, these skis fall in a sweet spot that mean I take them out for a rip regardless of conditions. When I traveled last winter, this was the only ski I packed. —Sierra Davis
