The Salomon Women's Q 88 Lux Ski looks sweet as pie but has a slightly spicy side hidden behind that sugar plum face. With a moderate sidecut that includes Salomon's edgy underfoot Carve Zone, a mid fat waist, and more versatility than the typical board, it will be your go to for time on piste that's broken up by short adventures into the soft stuff. The Lux's lightweight semi sandwich hybrid construction employs a lightweight cap in the tip and tail and powerful ABS sidewalls underfoot, which make it quick and playful in the trees and a willing carver on the groomers. In boot deep powder, the rockered tip and gently raised tail give the ski plenty of float and let you vary turn shapes at the drop of a hat, while the full wood core and underfoot camber give it edge to edge pop and power when things get firm. Salomon also incorporated its Hook Free Taper five dimensional sidecut to give the Lux a predictable feel that won't hook up or lock you into a turn when you'd rather be scrubbing speed.
