There are many good reasons why the Experience 100 Ski is Rossignol's award-winning, all-mountain slayer for literally every snow condition at the resort. Its versatile 100mm waist width handles powder and groomers with equal prowess. Rossignol's Auto Turn Rocker profile shapes this ski with camber under foot and slight rocker in the tip to balance power, energy, and edge grip with easier steering and speed control in deeper snow.

- Q & A
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Skied this on a blue bird day late in the season with some serious chop. I was looking to add a 100mm to my quiver so I gave this a try.
VERY stiff ski that does not like anything less than 40mph straight downhill. The metal, stiffness and weight make it impossible for bumps and it won't smear a turn.
If you ski fast and are big this is okay but it's really just a point and shoot ski with very little feedback or pop.
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I'm a snowboarder, I like to ski pow and maybe ski backwards from time to time. All the skis I own are fat twin tips.
Then I demod the E100, This thing rips!!! Its a hardpack crusher, that doesn't throw you into the next turn like other carving skis. The fat waist lets the ski go over anything without jumping to the next turn. But you've gotta be on top of it or this ski will be skiing you!
Great for laying down hard carves but crushes off piste too. Its heavy and bust crud and holds an edge. So it can hook up, be on top of it. Its not a great ski for tired legs.
Solid quiver ski or could be an everyday driver for folks that like the feel of a carving ski but want to take a powder lap or 2.
Very stiff and powerful!
Great .... For Only One Thing
This ski likes to crank big turns or even some GS turns, and does that really well, then it shoots you out of the turn like a bullet out of a gun. So if all you do is ski groomers then this might be a good fit. I ski crud, bumps, trees, etc. This ski absolutely sucks in crud. I did not test on powder. It was literally impossible to ski bumps - impossible. You will kill yourself. If you need a ski that you can go off piste with, don't get this ski. Try the sin 7 .... don't make the same financial mistake I did. ONLY GOOD FOR CRANKING TURNS ON GROOMERS ..... SUCKS FOR LITERALLY EVERYTHING ELSE (though might be ok on powder - did not test this)
Hello, I ride experience 88 at the moment.. I want to buy new ski, my style is a lot of short turns, 70, 80% time I am ride powder, but i like piste too, speed not that important, more like short turns, my skills are expert/advance... Doubt between experience 100 and soul 7, so u can tell your opinion, and which bindings recommend for that models of skis, also my height is 193 cm, which size
Hey Vuk, Sounds like both of these and the Soul 7's ( ROS009O ) would be a great choice in a next ski for you, but I would recommend going with the Soul 7's over the Experience 100. The Soul 7's are going to have a shorter turn radius and a slightly wider waist paired with a rockered tip that will give you the perfect amount of float in powder. I'd recommend going with the 188cm size ski. Feel free to reach me at 801.204.4547 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you or anyone else has any other questions! Cheers, Connor
