The Rossignol Experience 88 skis provide remarkable stability in any condition.
The Rossignol Experience 88 skis work well if you're sticking to groomed runs, but they are ideal if you find yourself switching between groomed runs and off-piste terrain
Poplar wood core creates a light and lively ski with excellent ski-to-snow feel and superb damping characteristics
Basalt and fiberglass laminates reduce vibrations and enhance maneuverability
Varying shapes of laminates reduce the weight of the tips, making them easier to control
Layered laminates in tips also smooth out turn initiation, improve edge contact during turns and increase side-to-side response
Subtle rocker in tips and tails offers easy steering in any snow condition, and traditional camber underfoot provides tenacious edge grip
Extended sidecut continues beyond the rockered tips and tails, providing full engagement of ski edges during turns at high speeds and easy maneuverability at low speeds
Base or topsheet color may vary from online photo
Vertical sidewalls deliver excellent power transfer for superb grip on hardpack snow

Rated5out of5bysnowrunnerfromAWESOME!!!Bought these sight unseen, never tried them Was skiing some old 9X'x from the late 90's when I got enough comments about my skinny skis.
Researched the Experience 88, whittle down to the 88's and the Avenger TI.
Spent the last two weekends on these and just love them. The are fun, very playful yet stable and a breeze to turn. Been working with my family of developig skiers, they are easy to ski backwards as well as maneuver at slow speeds.
Dropped from a 195 ro a 178, didn't lose a bit of stability. These hold and edge well on Michigan ice. Can't be happier!!!

Rated5out of5byJock of all tradesfromIt's a winnerI demoed the Rossi E88's at Whistler last season in typical Whistler conditions: blue bird skies w/packed powder, fog w/sleet, whiteout w/wind blown drifts, hardpack/icy patches and 3-12 inch day afters. To my delight, the E88's handled all but the deeper powder with amazing confidence. They initiate with ease, carve short/medium radius turns at any speed, have great grip on hardpack/ice, can bust thru crud, play in the trees and dance in some powder. I would think any advanced intermediate to expert skier looking for an all mountain/any condition ski will enjoy these. It would be hard to find another ski that offers so much agility, performace & forgiveness. I just added a pair to my quiver. What more can I say.
