Steep, deep, and ready to charge.
Big mountains and deep drifts require a big, stable plank, and if there's one thing the Rossignol Women's S7 Ski knows, it's how to go big. With a mammoth footprint, a rockered tip and tail, and a traditional camber underfoot, this bad girl is ready to devour virtually any terrain you point it towards.
- Powder Turn rocker tech in the tip and tail provide excellent flotation and easy steering in the deep, fluffy stuff
- Traditional camber underfoot delivers more edging power and grip so you don't skid out on the groomers
- Centered Sidecut features a vertical sidewall that tapers the at the tip and tail for better responsiveness
- Spoon-shaped tip maximizes flotation, and a deep radius increases edge grip and steer-ability
- Sandwich laminate construction features a wood core, carbon laminates, and fiberglass sheeting for increased durability and a lighter feel

Rossignol s7 w
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
This is a great ski to get the ladies feeling more comfortable on the mountain. The high rocker profile allows it to turn easily and combined with the width this ski will plow over crud and through the powder with ease. However, this ski does not hold a good edge on any sort of ice. This ski is most fun on powder days and in the trees as it is very soft and forgiving. Make sure you get this ski a little longer than you are used to because it has so much rocker the longer length will make it more stable.
Im 166cm and 145 pounds, and wondering...
Im 166cm and 145 pounds, and wondering wether to get the 168 or 178 length? I dont want the ski to be too short, or too long! Im a descent skier, and ski both powder and in the ski resorts! And does anyone know how this ski differ from the Black Diamond element ski for women?
Hey there Stip!
I'm about your size and a fairly strong/expert skier. I've tried the 178cm size and had no problems, it does ski a bit short with the rockered tips and tails. You get noticeably better flotation and stability at speed with the longer size. It will be a bit harder to initiate turns because of the increased length and swing weight.
If possible you should try to get out and demo some! Even just trying a few different skis in a longer length should help you determine if you enjoy longer sticks, or prefer to keep it in the 160s range.

Where to mount marker squire bindings on s7 womens 2013 ski. I'm 5'4", 110 pounds and ski the 168 length.
Hi Julie - there is some debate about this. Lots of folks like the S7 at +3, which takes advantage of the ski's fun shape and puts you right towards the center of the ski. If you want to move back from that, I'd go to +1.5 or right on the line at zero, depending on how much you like to drive the tips of your ski and how much you dislike a newer school slarvy style of skiing. But Rossi recommends the +3 mark and I've always skied this ski right there.

Does anyone know how these would be with a dynafit binding?
The S7w with Dynafits is going to be heavier than some prefer but there no reason not to rock that setup if you're OK with a bit of extra heft.
Rossignol Super 7 Ski - Women's
Pretty Skis, Pretty Fun
These are a fun and nimble pair of skis. Definitely a quiver-of-one (powder, crud, groomers). These skis are so maneuverable they might even work for an intermediate skier trying to explore off the groomers.
This ski not only kills it in the deep powder found in the west but it's weight and size gives it the ability to plow through any crud or uneven snow pack. This ski is one that you can ride on any day of the year, no matter if it's a sunny groomer day or a snowy powder day. This ski can handle it!! Don't let the size and dimensions of this ski scare you from riding them on a "trace" powder day because not matter what the snow is this ski will show you a good time!
I am 180 pounds and 5'9" Advanced...
I am 180 pounds and 5'9" Advanced intermediate- like to ski aggresively, go fast and like deep powder. Ski mostly Northwest resorts SHould I buy an 168 cm or 176 com women's s7? Should I consider the mens? I understand it is a little wider
Definitely get at least the 178 if not the 188 (offered in men's). There is no difference between the mens' and the womens' other than the topsheet; even the flex is the same. The mens' dimensions are 115 at the waist in 188, but the same dimensions (i.e. 110 at the waist) as the s7w in 178. They ski very short due to the rocker. I'm 130 lbs advanced intermediate and the 178 is great for me so you will probably find it way too short at 180 lbs.
Hey CT. You would definitely be much happier with the 178. I am 5'3" and 120 lbs (advanced skier) and can easily maneuver the 168cm, in fact I thought that was a bit on the short side for me. Its good to keep in mind that the rocker on both the tips and tails means this ski will feel shorter when skied. I advise you to steer clear of the 168cm length, you are going to be much happier with longer sticks.
Finally getting on the rocker (Rossi S7)...
Finally getting on the rocker (Rossi S7) and have no idea what length. 5'-6" 130 pounds, been skiing a 164 cm traditional camber ski. Like to charge but not hucking myself off cliffs. Advice? thanks!
I would think that the 168 makes sense for your size and what you are coming off of. 178 would feel very big, even with the fact that rocker generally skis shorter.
Sorry, I don't mean to sound know-it-ally, but I totally disagree with Jamie's reply. Here's why...
I've been on the S7's since Spring 2009. I'm 5'7" 130lbs and used to ski 170cm traditional shaped skis, so similar to you. I love to charge really hard and fast and do enjoy hucking off cliffs. A bit different than you, but I still assume you're a strong skier none-the-less.
I started on the 176's (now sold as 178's) due to advice of people speculating what it's like to ski an S7. I mounted them at 0 for freeriding (not park riding). Note their weight was not an issue while skiing. In the end, it was fun and I liked it, but it felt too short and soft. I really felt it when skiing hard and fast through chopped up snow - not as stable as I'd like, tips deflected, not enough effective edge up front to carve through the crud.
Sold them and bought the 188cm's. LOVE! They look huge for someone my size and weight, but they work so well! They're now very beat up and I just picked up a new pair of the same to replace them once the mountains get a bit more snow.
I'm not sure I'd recommend the 188's to someone our size unless they really know how to not let the ski ride them, but I definitely recommend the 178's for anyone our size who is a strong skier. 168's will likely leave you wishing you bought 'em bigger. Good luck!

Awesome in the pow pow
Love it skiing the powder. It's a fat ski so you can rip when it gets deep.

Do you have the 168 in the Womens s7 and or the 168 in the S7 mancini pro
Yes for sure in the Lady's - but they sell out quickly. Keep checking back!
Difference is between the women vs mens...
Difference is between the women vs mens version? Does anyone know exactly what the difference is between the women vs mens version of the S7? They usually make the womens version softer but seeing as how the S7 is already has quite a soft flex, maybe the men's version might be the better choice??
I was told it was just the graphic.
The women are a bit slimmer 140-110-118 and the men version is 145-115-123... So it is more than the graphics... The base is very different too, the men as the black ptex....I think the black Ptex glide better but It is only my 2 cents !
Wondering if marker barons would be good...
Wondering if marker barons would be good bindings to mount on these skis? I know something lighter might be nicer, but I might want to take 'em in the backcountry some too.
They'd be perfect if you're going to def go tour a few times. The added height of the Baron will also help get better leverage on these fat skis and help get them on edge really quick. They'll ski extra nimble.
I'm deciding between the s7's, JJ's and...
I'm deciding between the s7's, JJ's and the Blogs..leaning towards the blogs just because they're about $150 cheaper.
Anyone have any advice on whether the s7's or JJ's are worth the extra cash? I'm mounting with marker barons and will use them mainly for pow - but still want something I can rip groomers with. I've only skied the s7 and loved them, how do the others compare?
I ski the VJJ and I have the Atomic Millenium (which is the women's version of the Blog) and I've skied this S7 a handful of times.
The S7s are nice because they are so user friendly, but if you are looking to progress I would steer away from them, as you will likely outgrow them pretty quickly.
The VJJ and the Blog are both better all-around skis, especially when it comes to chop and crud. I found the S7 to be incredibly unreliable and even terrifying when entering harder cruddy snow. In these conditions the S7 was twitchy and it became incredibly difficult to find the correct stance on the ski (be it forward or more centered).
I think you would find better all around performance on either the VJJ or the Blog, the VJJ being my favored quiver ski.
