The Rossignol Squad 7 Ski won't make the most out of variable conditions, it won't carve like a race ski, and it isn't what you'd call a versatile all-mountain ski, but it will make the best days a helluva a lot better with a shape and width that will surf waist-deep pow like a dream. Like yourself, the Squad 7 lives for those uber-deep days that linger in your memory and get you through long, hot summers and seemingly endless high-pressure systems.
The Squad 7 sports Rossignol's powder-specific Powder Turn rocker profile, which consists of minimal camber underfoot and a heavily rockered tip and tail. And if that wasn't enough to keep the Squad 7 up in the deep stuff, Rossignol went ahead and hooked it up with their Air Tip technology, which keeps the tips of the skis light and wanting to plane through the deepest stashes. The reduced weight in the tip and tail not only adds to the skis powder performance, but it also reduces swing weight for easier turn initiation and better maneuverability when you're slashing turns through tight trees and down narrow chutes. A paulownia wood core keeps the Squad 7 light, nimble, and playful, while a Minicap sandwich construction combines the durability and stability of full-length sidewalls with a capped topsheet to prevent chipping and excessive wear on the topsheets

Let me start by saying that I absolutely LOVE these skis. I own them in a 190cm. Perfect size. I am 5'11 - 220lbs - Expert skier - 33 years old. Current quiver: Blizzard Bonafide, Kastle BMX 108, Nordica El Capo, and Squad 7.
Gearhead Bill Porreca was helpful with questions & concerns I had. He recommended that I purchase the Squad 7 over the Super 7 and he was absolutely correct. Thank again Bill.
They are so light & nimble, but stiff & strong at the same time. I could use this ski as my daily driver and be happy. The Squad is much sturdier than the Soul 7/Super 7 and built for harder skiing and blasting through cruddier snow/floating in the pow. The Soul/Super is nice but I felt too soft for a bigger aggressive guy like me even in a 188cm. They were getting pushed around too much for me.
The SQUAD 7 excelled in everything. Even the moguls & groomers believe it or not. I actually took these on a few jumps in the park too. These skis can do it all. Very quick edge to edge compared to other 115-120mm waisted skis.
Great pow ski that can be used just about anywhere. Many of the reviews say that it is a pro level ski for the deepest days but I beg to differ. I carved it up on these and it felt like it had a much smaller waist & turn radius than it did. So much fun!
Great ski, stiffer than I am used to.

I bought these over the summer and have mostly used them for resort skiing. Today I finally got them in the back country on powder and WOW. They like to go fast and stay on top of the snow. Easy to carve (with a wide radius) in everything from powder to groomers. They are not a bump ski, but can handle it if you stay on top of them. They are great in crud and powder if you like to go fast.
