Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've used this camera a bunch all last winter and like how easy it is use. Having the screen is great because you can check out the footage, plus it makes it easier to change any settings. I like that this camera does not require an additional case for waterproofing. The time lapse setting is a fun feature to play around with.

I didn't really need a waterproof case, but this one is so low profile that I figured why not?
I love that the entire phone is completely protected while still looking good and not bulky. In the past I've messed with all kinds of screen protectors that just end up getting scratched up and look like crap. I've had this one for a month or so is the screen cover looks great, no scratches at all.
I have an iphone 5s in there and it fits perfectly, I don't use the finger print scanner which I guess will not work with the particular case.

The Q98 really impressed me with its quickness and versatility. When it hasn't snowed in a week or so, I will break these out and ski the whole mountain. They have a low profile tip rocker and generous sidecut so they are super fun and carvy on groomers, but will still float fairly well in some light pow. Stable at speed with full wood core. They will also make a great spring touring ski.

For a big wood-core ski, this thing is pretty light. I ski the Q-115 on and off resort and feel it works great everywhere. If you need a bigger ski for touring or like a versatile pow ski on resort, this could serve you well. I like rockered skis, but I definitely prefer to have a tail behind me, so this, for me, is just about perfect.

Hi Harry,

I think you'll be fine with the 192. They will be easier than the pontoons because they are a little smaller but also a lot lighter. You will appreciate the 192 as more stable at speed as well.

The Q-105s excel as an all mountain ski. I put about 20 days on them last winter in between pow days and during the spring at Alta/Snowbird. Salomon has keeps refining the rocker profile for different users. These have ample low profile tip rocker and slightly early rise tail. The tail is almost a flat tail but it has a subtle early rise that helps the tail release. I found that you can smear quick turns without the full 'pivot' feel you get from a double rockered ski. They are great on groomers since they have good sidecut and the low profile tip rocker + honeycomb tip keeps the tip flap to a minimum. I love the light weight of the ski too, it just makes it so user friendly. In the steeps I like how these make it easy to smear the top of the turn to get the ski in the fall line and then they make nice predictable turns.
