The QST brings the meat and the heat. It likes to go fast, but can make any turn, anywhere, in any conditions without hesitation. It was the favorite ski of our resident ex-racer, but also got props across the board for its snow feel, stability, and energy. Of course, all that stability comes at a price: there’s more ski here to haul uphill, to the tune of a pound or more. But as an inbounds/backcountry do-it-all crusher, the QST is a fun, rewarding ride.
