2022 Salomon QST 92 Skis
Set Descending Direction
Hi, I’m a long time skier (30+ years). I’m advanced intermediate, 5’8” and weigh around 220. I usually ski 25-30 days a year in mid-Atlantic, with one or two trips to Vermont, and am always on piste. Usually on blues and single diamonds. Got a pair of QST 92s last year, 169 cm (based on recommendation from ski shop). I generally like the ski, but feel a loss of control at higher speeds. Thinking of getting the 2022 QST 92s in 177cm, but wondering if I should be looking at 185s due to my size.
Question by: Daniel Owens on Sep 12, 2021, 9:29 PM
Hi Daniel,

The 177cm would be the size to go to, but not the 185. The 177cm would provide some additional stability at higher speeds.

I’m an east coast skier, intermediate but progressing quickly. I currently have a pair of Mkndbender 99 ti’s that I really like but looking for something lighter and playful for learning to ski bumps and also for use on i y days. I’m thinking these might fit the bill but don’t see a whole lot of reviews about them. I’m 5’11 and 190lbs and looking at them in the 177 length. Would these be a good option? Any other recommendations?

Hi Matt!

The QST 92 is a surprisingly great fit here. The 92's are light enough to stay reactive and maneuverable but also have enough underfoot camber to really launch you out of turns. They do chatter a little in extremely icy conditions, but for Bumps, woods, and groomers it's a great choice.

I am a 5' 9" skier at 165 lbs with 10+ seasons under my belt and will be 18 when this ski season rolls around. I have a couple years of racing experience but have really fallen in love with tree skiing. I purchased a pair of K2 reckoners last year that are 102 underfoot and 184 in length and I've had a Rossignol smash 7 that are 92 underfoot and 170 in length. I'm looking for something similar underfoot to the Smash 7s, but a longer & nicer ski. I have come down to the mindbender 90Ti and this, the QST 92. Both are 177 length which is what I'd like, but I am unsure which of the two would be better for quick snappy turns in the trees - a fair carving ability would be appreciated, though. As I said, I am on the east/Vermont so I won't be dealing with much powder. Any insight would be really appreciated, thanks.

Hi Luca!

I think the QST 92 is the pick here. They're extremely light compared to the 90Ti and feel a lot more capable in the trees. The 90Ti is a superb on trail carver, but I would say it's a little too heavy to reliably be taken into the woods. They don't have the snappy turn initiation that the QST has. The QST feels energized like they want to break out in to short pop turns on a moments notice. You still get a fair amount of camber underfoot for icy groomer days so the QST 92 is really the full package for any aspiring all mountain explorer. Hope this helps!

Hello, I am going between the head kore 93 and the qst 92. I am 5'8 250lbs and ski NH/VT. I stick to mostly blues. Want to get into light trees. I would love an easy to turn ski with a bit more stability. I was thinking sticking to the 170 range. Which ski would be best with my weight? Am i overlooking another good affordable option? Thanks!

Hi Dan!
For the price and the versatility, there's not much else out there. This ski was highlighted in our Bargain Basement video recently as a deal and ski that we really like: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KytQ2INzxso&t=168s
Head Kore 93 also made that list--it's a bit stiffer and lighter, so a different feel. If you are looking for more stability and an easy-going nature, I'd lean to the Salomon. Check out our deal in the 169: https://www.skiessentials.com/2022-salomon-qst-92-skis-w-tyrolia-attack2-14-gw-bindings.html

Hi, I 5'11" and 180 lbs. I have been skiing for 25 years and ski about 10-15 days a year in the Rocky Mountains and/or Japan. I would say that I primarily ski on piste, but love dipping into the trees, finding some fresh pow, and hitting small jumps and drops. I am looking at the QST 92s and thinking that 185 cm might be the way to go, but not positive. Any insight would be appreciated. Thanks.

HI Chris!
I totally think that ski works in that size. There's a lot of good stuff in the low to mid-90's range and the QST 92 is one of the best of them. Black Crows Serpo is another one worth a look--perhaps a bit more on-trail oriented. You're in the right zone for sure!
