Head Kore 93 vs. Salomon QST 92
Narrowed it down to these two pairs. I know each can ski groomers, powder, trees, etc. real well, but which one would excel in Northeast conditions?
I demoed the Kore 108, and it carves amazingly and charges awesome. I'd reccomend
QST 106, they rip everywhere and are way more capable than the 92s
But the 92s are phenomenal value for the $$
I've skied both and I would describe the personality of the QST as a little bit damper and more forgiving, it almost feels like something closer to 100 underfoot in terms of edge-to-edge quickness. The Kore is much more of a precision instrument, a little bit more chattery (but still way more stable than a pure touring carbon layup ski), but super low swingweight and a really nice snappy tail that makes it super easy to make quick direction changes at high speeds. I'd go with the QST if your local skiing tends towards softer conditions, the Kore if it tends towards firmer.
