Description: Salomon Q-85 Skis

The Salomon Q-85 Skis are ideal for the intermediate to advanced skier that will be mostly skiing on the trail, but also wants some off trail capabilities. The Semi Sandwich Construction features a cap construction in the tips and tails for forgiveness, with a sidewall underfoot for maximum edge hold. The Hook Free Taper of the Q-85 makes the ski very maneuverable on un-groomed terrain, by not letting your tips get caught up in the crud. The Utility Rocker profile has a rockered tip to keep you on top of the snow, initiate turns more efficiently and minimizes vibrations at high speed. If you are looking for a ski that can slice down the groomers, and venture off trail from time to time, the Salomon Q-85 will be a great ski for you.

OK ... the graphics somewhat sold me. They look cool. But the sidecut numbers looked as though they would fit my needs. I don't expect these boards to be heavy workhorses in the bumps or on ice. I'm looking for a powder puff. The fat 100 plus mm underfoot type skis are just too much to haul around ... too specialized. This ski will offer a bit more versatility when there is fresh snow on the ground. And if there isn't fresh snow I'll put them aside for a racing ski.

After multiple YouTube videos and expert advise I came to the conclusion the Salomon Q-85 would be a proper all mountain choice for me.
To summarize: If you're >6 feet tall, >225 pounds, are a beginning or intermediate and no longer want to deal with the lines at the rental shop -purchase these.

I have been skiing for 2 years now and like to ski trails , the hills and sometimes the park a little. Would these skis be good for me?

BEST ANSWER: This is a pretty versatile ski. Generally, skiers with two years of experience appreciate a light and flexible ski. This one fits the bill. It also has a lot of sidecut, so it will be "turny". I was after a powder ski that would still perform well on bumps. I'm 5'8",weigh 165 and have been skiing for more than 50 years. I own mostly racing skis. So, I get a 181 and use the ski exclusively as my soft condition ski.

At the World Cup slalom in Schladming last night I saw a surprising number of Salomon skis. I take this as an indicator that this particular ski might inherit some of the strength and durability that we see in international competition.
