You can't resist a ski this good.
Some days call for fat powder boards and others for skinny groomer-demolishing skis, but everything in between is prime territory for the Rossignol Temptation 88 Women's Ski. It's a true quiver-killer, designed to handle everything the mountain throws at it, from leftover pow stashes to small moguls to bulletproof hardpack, all with a cheeky smile and hefty dose of fun.
At 88mm underfoot, the Temptation 88 isn't the biggest ski in Rossignol's all-mountain line (that honor goes to the Temptation 100), but it might be the most versatile. It sports the same Auto Turn Rocker as all of Rossi's all-mountain rippers, with camber underfoot for edge grip and a gently rockered tip and tail to make short work of boot-deep powder, tight trees, and rough storm leftovers. The sidecut's been extended, too, to provide more edge contact when you lay the ski over without sacrificing the ability to pivot quickly when you keep it flat, so you can rip groomers one lap and slice your way through glades the next.
Although she can charge, the Temptation is a nimble ski, thanks in large part to the snappy, lively poplar core and basalt fiber laminate, which is stiff enough to be driven hard and light enough that it won't ever feel like it's in charge. It uses Rossignol's trademark Air Tip construction to keep weight down and eliminate the tip chatter that can be a problem for rockered skis, and is built with a hybrid Minicap sandwich construction, which combines cap and sandwich designs for a top-shelf combo of edge hold and lightness. All this will make the Temptation 88 your go-to coast-to-coast board in all but the deepest and most bulletproof conditions.
