Rossignol Experience 100 - Game Changer!

By Powderhound Matt \ February 17 2016

Every so often a ski manufacture designs a ski that just works for you.  About 5 years ago Rossignol did that for me. The first time I got on the Rossignol Super 7s I knew everything had changed. The ski just fit me like a glove, I was pretty much in love.  Since that time I’ve played around with other skis, had some good times but at the end of the day I always go back to my good friend, the Super 7’s.  I’d ski them on the deepest of powder days and the best of groomer day. They just felt like home.  


Well five years later I’m happy to say there is a new love in my life and it’s not a powder ski!  Believe that??? Well, it’s true. In order to tempt the snow Gods into pounding Utah with The Greatest Snow on Earth, I decided against adding another fat boy to my already monstrous quiver and I did something I hadn’t done since I moved to Utah 10 years ago.  I added an all mountain carving ski.  Well at least in my mind it’s a carving ski.  This winter I opted to get to the Rossignol Experience 100.  The ski still skis pretty fat with its 100 mm underfoot platform but ripping groomers at high speeds while in total control is something I haven’t really felt in a very, very, long time. To be honest, I love it.  

It’s the reason I fell in love with skiing back on the East Coast many moons ago. Obviously, we all come out West to ski the super deep pow which we are famous for, but honestly, I became a powder snob. If it wasn’t fresh, if it wasn’t snowing I really didn’t want to ski. Well, the Rossignol Experience 100’s have changed the game for me again. Now I’m actually super excited to get out on those bluebird mornings and rip some of those famous groomers that Park City Mountain,  Deer Valley Resort and Snowbasin Resort have to offer. Here are a couple of my favorite top to bottom groomer runs:
