OnTheSnow tested the Salomon Q-98 as part of its men’s All-Mountain Back Category and awarded it an Editors’ Choice honor. 

Salomon’s Q-line models are designed to handle a variety of snow and terrain. “Commendable float for 98-mm underfoot,” says Maybon. “I’d call it an all-mountain ripper that won’t suck the life out of your legs.” Testers ranked the Q-98 highest for playfulness, agreeing with Gaudet that it “skis light and energetically.”
