Any side of the mountain will do.
You've never been one to limit yourself to any one thing, so why would you stick to groomers when there's a whole mountain to explore? The Salomon Q-105 will do it all with enough surface area to keep you suspended in the deep stuff on the backside and a narrow enough width that you can lay them on edge when it's time lay down hot laps on the front side.
Skiing is about having fun and the Q-105s are all about having a good time. Their Utility rocker profile gives them a playful feel with a long, gradually rockered tip that eventually gives way to camber underfoot. Their hook-free taper is due to the ski's 5-cut side cut, which moves the widest point of the ski back a bit for easy turn initiation in everything from chopped crud to pristine powder. The combination of a full wood core and honeycomb tip makes the Q-105s stable at speed, responsive, and light enough to scrub turns between tight trees when you're hunting down the last remaining powder stashes that the mountain has to offer.

- Q & A
I love these skis.
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I recently mounted these with STH16s. I've since skied nothing but soft snow, however, I've skied one day on chalk ad two big days (20"+) on the ski. They handled both very well. They're responsive, floaty in the deep, and as yesterday proved capable of pushing around powder bumps. They ski well back on the cat track also. In conditions I would normally have grabbed my rockers or atlas these did great. They're an excellent all around ski.
