The mid fat and versatile Salomon Women's Q 96 Lumen Ski was made to rule the groomers. And the trees. And bumps. And powder. OK, it's the queen of pretty much everything it surveys, thanks to its mid fat 96mm width, edgy underfoot camber, and moderately rockered tip and tail. The rocker Salomon calls it Utility Rocker makes short work of boot top powder and rough snow, while the camber bites into hardpack for reliable edging, even on refrozen groomers and early morning ice. The raised tip lets you turn on a dime in tight trees and bumps, and the honeycomb tip reduces vibration and works with the semi sandwich construction ABS sidewalls underfoot with cap construction in the tip and tail to keep the Q 96 lighter than a feather and nimbler than an ermine. Add in a lively and energetic wood core and a smooth hook free taper tip and tail, and it's easy to see why the Q 96 is one of the most fun and versatile women's all mountain skis out there.
