Are you Experienced?

There's a lot of mountain to ski, and only a few short hours of daylight to get it all done, so you'd better strap on the Rossignol Experience 88 Ski and stop wasting time. The Experience is down to get after it whether it's gray and snowy, bluebird with fresh corduroy, icy midwinter in New England, or a little bit of everything rolled up into one afternoon, thanks to its lightweight construction, 88mm waist, and versatile camber profile. Rossignol designed it with the same Auto Turn Rocker as all the other skis in the Experience line, giving it high camber underfoot for serious edging power and throwing in a moderately rockered tip and tail to give it a nimble feel and better soft-snow performance. The sidecut radius has been extended, so you get radically more edge contact as you lay the ski on edge, giving you more power and control at higher speeds without sacrificing quickness and nimbleness when you're just cruising.

A great all-mountain ski has to be stiff on hardpack but light and maneuverable to get through tight spots, and the Experience hits the mark by combining a light, lively poplar core with a basalt fiber laminate, giving the ski enough stiffness to rally through crud and over ice without taking away its quickness in trees and tight chutes. Rossignol designed with a minicap sandwich construction, which blends traditional rugged sidewalls with a lightweight cap to provide a killer combination of grip and lightness, and finished the Experience off with their now-trademark Air Tip, which uses a honeycomb construction to lighten the tip, reducing vibration and chatter for a smooth, predictable ride in all conditions, which is the whole point of the Experience, after all.

  • Auto Turn Rocker (high camber underfoot, low rocker in the tip and tail)

Great All Around Ski

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

These are great and overall work well with most everything. Paired up with the Rossi FKS 140 binding and would have to say they are a great combo. Solid ski for ice, bumps, all around cruising.

turns turns turns

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

My goal was to round out the quiver with a pair of frontside rippers. I demoed the 180s for a day and found the short turning radius and the airtip = effortless turns.

I found the 180s to be stable at speed but my old school roots had me thinking that the 180s were too short (6-2 / 220) so I tried the exp84 in a 186..... I bought the exp88's in a 180. The extra length added swing weight and were no more stable than the 88's in a 180.

I found that the 88's had a surprising amount of float and were easy to pop up and swing in the wet heavy spring crud. I felt like a teenager ripping thru the bumps (did i say these skis turned?) - Exp88's are a great way to delay knee surgery.

bring on the frontside!

What is the best binding or binding choices (and what width) to pair with this Rossi Experience 88 ski?

Great at Stowe

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Tore it up at Stowe with these skis. They were my favorite of all the skis I demo'ed. I was looking for a traditional camber ski that would handle ice, bumps, trees. I did not ski deep powder with them, but I will get a pair if the price is right. If you've got the money, I say go for it if you're looking for a reliable all mountain ski that can go fast and turn fast with good stability.

Best east coast ski ever!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Solid ice to spring corn this ski does it all. I bought it to go to CO with and found it unbelievable here on the east coast. The harder you drive it the better it responds. Just want to relax and cruse a bit it is like silk.I ski mostly the double diamonds at Blue mountain in PA. In CO It was great in everything up until 60 " of snow in 5 days . It was OK but you have to be flying to keep them on top of 10"s. Slow down and you bog down stay aggressive and drive them they are great. Relax and you will be picking yourself up from a crash or polling to make headway. Overall 5+++ stars for east and west. 3 for west when the snow fall hits double digits.

Hey Marty, Thanks for the review. What length did you get and how much do you weigh? Thanks----Bill
