The only thing testers quibbled about with the Stella 106 was the fact they had to bring it back to the corral. They called it nimble, floaty, fun, easy, playful, quick, and stable. It soared through DV’s powdery trees, turning so quickly it seemed to read our minds. With a wide range of entry, the Stella 106 is easy enough for a powder novice and strong enough for the highest experts on the hill. The widest in Salomon’s QST women’s line, the 106 has a wood core reinforced with a carbon/flax weave. A honeycomb tip keeps it maneuverable and floaty. “Hero ski. Loved everything it did,” Barnes said.

Strengths: Flotation, Quickness
