The mid-fat and versatile Salomon Women's Q-96 Lumen Ski was made to rule the groomers. And the trees. And bumps. And powder. OK, it's the queen of pretty much everything it surveys, thanks to its mid-fat width, underfoot camber, and moderately rockered tip and tail. The rocker makes short work of boot-top powder and rough snow, while the camber bites into hardpack for reliable edging, even on refrozen groomers. The raised tip lets you turn on a dime in tight trees and bumps, and the honeycomb tip reduces vibration and works with the semi-sandwich construction to keep the Q-96 lighter than a feather. Add in a lively and energetic wood core and a smooth hook-free taper tip and tail, and it's easy to see why the Q-96 is one of the most fun and versatile women's all-mountain skis out there.
