cg.99how old are kids? J master blaster may be good. 96 underfoot, but has deep sidecut so they carve very well. Also, if the kids are younger, skiing backwards is a pro for teaching. Just a thought
7, 4, 2. Older two are good to go youngest has yet to get on skis. Ski looks great...spendy though.
skidemon22It is not at all geared towards backcountry. its 95mm underfoot with 2 sheets of titanal, which makes it great on ice/ variable conditions. It has a poplar-reinforced paulownia wood core, which is a sustainable, lightweight hardwood.
It's our frontside/ all mountain ski that is way more fun then Kendo (which is just a 2x4). We are dropping the price for next seasons model, so it'll retail for $649. It also gets a graphic refresh
Thanks for the info, I looked at this ski a couple times but didn't have it on the list for fear it may be to lightweight/not hard charging enough.
tomPietrowskiHave him look for the Salomon qst 99 or92 if he really is worried about the waist width. It's a really solid ski which holds an edge really well. Best of all they can be found really cheap. We are currently sellin the 92 for $350 cad.
@$350 CAD it's tempting right? I may be ill informed but I see the QST as a quintessential dad ski. Is it stiff, a little brutal or is it really easy to ski and carve for a variety of skier types and abilities?
