Salomon called on its team of free ski athletes, including Chris Rubens, Alexi Godbout, Stan Rey, Cody Townsend, among others to help re-design the award-winning collection of QST freeride skis. For the Fall/Winter 2021-2022 season, the QST range features four models: the all-new QST Blank, the QST 106, the new QST 98 and the QST 92. And Outpost Sunsport has the QST Blank in store NOW. The all-new QST Blank, a pillow-popping, powder-loving,112 mm waist ski built to slay everything on deep days at the resort or in the backcountry. The QST Blank has a progressive shape that enhances the flotation and playfulness of your turns, and a construction that delivers the stability you need. By adjusting the shape of the ski from previous QST models, lowering the widest points and lengthening the rocker, Salomon engineers were able to create a ski that brings playfulness to any type of turn while maintaining power and stability in any conditions.
The QST Blank takes its name from The Blank Collective, an upstart group of Salomon athletes in British Columbia who were instrumental in the design of the ski. With seven ski films in the can and an eighth on the way for fall of 2021, The Blank Collective is now an established crew whose films are featured at festivals worldwide. “I think the QST Blank is a bit like our crew at The Blank Collective,” says Salomon athlete Alexi Godbout, who started the Collective. “It charges hard, but it’s also playful. If you watch any of our films, you’ll see people sending big-mountain lines, skiing pillows and ski-touring on crazy-deep powder days in the BC backcountry. You will also see that we are a pretty lighthearted group. We ski hard and take what we do seriously, but we don’t take ourselves too seriously.”
