Happy Holidays to all! We hope everyone has been enjoying Santa’s gift of POWder for us here in Jackson Hole. Our team at the Casper Demo Center have been trying all the skis at their disposal and are going to keep us updated on their findings. Here’s their holiday update.
The Employee’s Choice this Holiday: Salomon QST 106
Demo the QST 106 for only $5 per hour!
If you’re looking for a single ski that’ll handle almost every day of the season, the QST 106 will definitely be of interest to you. Don’t just take my word for it though! The only true way to know if a ski is for you is to get on that ski. The Casper Demo Center has the 2017 QST 106 in the 167 cm, 174 cm, 181 cm and 188 cm lengths. We’ll help give you that last bit of confidence before making a purchase!
The QST line is new for Salomon this year, and the QST 106 has already been one of the most sought after skis in the Demo Center. The QST 106 skis hard pack like a ski with a much narrower waist width yet won’t sacrifice float and soft snow performance. The edge hold was very impressive and the underfoot stiffness of the ski added much confidence when ripping down groomers. As the soft snow on the groomers began to get pushed into piles, the ski still tracked well through the crud. The QST 106 has a stated weight of 1,900g for the 181cm length and a 20m turn radius, which allows it to be a very light, quick to maneuver ski in bumps and trees. However, it is still able to maintain its dampness due to the Carbon Flax stringers and a titanal insert edge to edge. The tip on the 181cm length is 140mm and soft relative to the underfoot, so it should planes very well in deep snow. The mount point is also almost 8 cm behind center which will only help the tips plane better.
This is going to be one of the hottest selling skis this year so come try it out! If you choose to buy from JH Sports, TVS or Hoback, we’ll credit you up to two days’ worth of demo fees and even mount and tune them for free so that you can ride them the next morning!
Come by and see us during the Holidays and let us take your skiing to the next level!
