Leave your mark on the mountain.
The Rossignol Squad 7 Ski slashes big-mountain windlips, poaches backcountry pow, explores sidecountry stashes, and sniffs out fresh snow in the glades. Its Powder Turn Rocker profile supplies effortless steering, maneuverability, and instant speed control while you slash waist-deep pow turns, straightline through a tight chute, or navigate down a sick pillow line. Designed for veteran skiers, the Squad 7 owns the mountain on any given powder day.
- Powder Turn Rocker profile consists of 50% high rockered tip and tail and 50% low camber underfoot
- High rockered tip and tail enables you to float on top of pow, scream down steep, open bowls, maneuver through chopped-up soft snow, and blast through crud and slushy spring conditions
- High rockered tail is pin-shaped for easier steering in powder and instant speed control
- Low camber underfoot provides a stable platform on hardpack and holds a solid edge on groomers, mogul fields, and in firmer conditions
- Wood core with basalt fibers creates an extremely responsive, powerful, stable, lively, and durable ski that you can count on for performance and longevity
- Sandwich laminate construction uses flat layers and a traditional sidewall at the sides for core protection
- Traditional sidewalls apply direct pressure to the edges for increased precision and edging power
- 120mm waist surfs pow, blasts through crud, straightlines, and cruises down soft snow to the lift line
- Centered sidecut tech features a tapered tip and tail with short sidecut underfoot for improved edge grip, power, easy steering, and playfulness

Ive been skiing on the old Scratch BC for years and its time to upgrade. I love the BCs for their stiffness and ability to ski anywhere on the mountain. I love the park, but also i love backcountry jibbing and big lines. Would these skis be a good fit? Or what else would you recommend?
These are a bit fat for park usage at 120 mm underfoot, and the turn radius is pretty generous for park skiing as well.
If you are looking for a more park-centric ski that also kills it in powder and all-mtn conditions you might want to check out the narrower Volkl Bridge. I've heard positive feedback from park skiers that this ski is awesome both in and out of the park.

Hey, I'm an advanced skier who mostly skis out West. Would this be a good one ski quiver for all but the iciest days? Would they be too difficult to ski if I'm on groomers with some beginner/ intermediate friends? Thanks for any advice.
Obviously this will be great in powder, and the high rockered tip and tail will do wonderfully in crud.
The low camber underfoot will give you a stable platform on hardpack and will hold a solid edge on groomers, mogul fields- all over the mountain.
In summary, yes will be a good one-ski-quiver and will be fine on the groomers too.
Pray for Snow!
Awesome all MT
Used these for 3 days last year and had to buy them, fun fun fun!!!
why did these go back up in price?

Pricing can fluctuate depending on what sales or promotions we are running. If you are interested in these skis give our Gearheads a call and maybe there is something we can do to get them to the price that you saw. Either chat in with the link at the top or give us a call at 1-855-461-8621.

i am a solid upper intermediate at about 6'10 340 and im not sure which ski would be better for me this one or the super 7. any feed back is appreciated
Hey jacob gerhard,
You've got two good Rossignol options for your measures and ability. I would go with the Super 7 as the increased sidecut and the slightly thinner dimensions will provide a more maneuverable and versatile ski for you.
35" of powder in 48 hours
I bought these to use next season after the big snow hits, but it started up again here in Colorado (may 1st: 21" in 2 days). I mounted these with Duke bindings, as an upgrade from the Scratch BC (S5) I had been riding before. What a difference. I weigh 250lbs at 6'5", and these are stiff enough to charge, and keep much much more energy in the powder than the S5. I had a blast!!! the tip and tail are all that is somewhat flexible, the rest is a stiff platform for high speed turns. I can't explain why they are better than the other skis I've tried, but they were the right choice for me.
Coming from all mountain/jib skis, there is nothing I have compromised with this upgrade, except maybe rails in the park, but I'm gonna get look bindings on the s5s, then I'll be set for that. These are slightly heavier than the S5, which isn't surprizing, it's basically the same style construdtion, with 25mm wider everywhere. oh man. SOOOOO good for objective skiing.
many great attributes...
but this ski after two powder choked days left me wanting or a bit confused. The good attributes are: Turns very well and can be super quick with the the way the tip is designed on this ski. Rolls up on edge with absolutely no hesitation compared to lets say a Pettitor. Great grip. Its also able to make big round carved turns I found when screwing around on groomers too. Very fast bases or my wax was perfect :) Floats well but a bit too turny in pow for a ski with a 29.5m turn radius...weird. Felt disconnected transistioning from or trying varying turn shapes in the pow. Stability wise these are def all that although just not a fan of Rossi's core maybe. Has this kind of stiff skittery feel that is a bit too bouncy. The Pettitor in a 189 was way more damp and connected to the snow with a better kind of stability for me. Was not affraid to point the Pettitor at a pile of junk snow at speed while GS'n or super G'n while on edge. The Squad does so many things well and is a ripper for sure but just lacked that fun playful factor for me and found it rather boring. So many awesome skiers however that connect with this ski and I get that. Demo if you can.
Getting a pair!!!

I only skied these for one day at the resort last weekend and that's all it took. I am getting a pair asap! The conditions were 4'' of snow on top of mostly manmade and I was carving these bad boys with ease... not to mention skiing much faster under control... really love the 29.5m turn radius and how stable they were at around 50mph... also super confidence inspiring tails while landing airs. The only thing I couldn't tell was how playful they were in the soft stuff... but I can tell you they will charge hard in soft/hard snow. Will update as season continues...

One Word..... This ski is BAD!! Literally. Skied it this weekend, although only on a blue groomer, BUT, It was Amazing. Skied the Super 7 last fews years, but this ski will be more stable at higher speeds, 29 turning radius and 120 underfoot. Everyone , this is THE ski for 2013 season. !!
