They say

Get ready to charge with the QST 99. Laps in back bowl powder, flying down your favourite runs in resort; it excels in all playgrounds.

We say

The QST is one of the most playful skis we tried within this category. The whole flex, weight and shape of the ski is so balanced that it immediately feels exceptionally easy to use, and allows you to enjoy the snow and terrain, without worrying about how the ski will react. It was absolutely no effort to use, in any of the mixed snow conditions that we tested in. Although it is light and nimble on the groomed runs it felt solid on the edge and felt like a really good all mountain ski. Overall, this was a hard ski to fault, which had a wide breadth of abilities and ease of use, which gives skiers confidence in all conditions.

Strengths

Light, easy to use, very playful.

 

Weaknesses

Hard to fault. Fast, heavier skiers may find them quite light.

Testers comments

Floats well in the powder and quick from edge to edge on the groomers. A great all-mountain performer. (Pete Davison)

Very, very playful. Easy to use, no effort in any conditions, loved it! (Mark Jones)
