Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is one of my favorite skis, it has surprised me how good it is. I would pick this ski before the q105 for an all mountain ski, as its light weight but also pretty stiff, and very consistent/stable.

Rocker tip and flat tail (slight early rise), makes this an easy rider but very comfortable if hammered, and good in ALL conditions.

Fit: True to size

I went with the tortoise/brown, and pretty stoked on the deal. Full size frame for great coverage, but still very light. I like that there is no rubber on the arms which can be too grabby sometimes. They stay in place nicely thanks to the rubberized bridge.

Here's a full sandwich construction ski with 2 sheets of metal from Salomon. One of the burliest skis the brand has ever produced. The added beef helps the Q Lab plow through anything you can throw at it. I skied the 190 around 30 days last year so I got to know it pretty well. Rocker tip and flat tail made it stable and maneuverable . Full sidewall keeps it damp. 145 / 109 / 134 mm = float and sidecut = pow and hardpack performance. The Qlab definitely replaced the Q115 as my daily driver last year at Alta/Bird.

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.
