2008 Rossignol Scratch Girl BC Ski - Women's

Posted

Pros: Versatile, fun, poppy, trees

Cons: wobbly at speed, too soft, tips sink in powder

 These are awesome all-mountain skis.  I had a great three years riding on them.  They are versatile that you can bring them all over and they'll do a great job everywhere.  They are fantastic for tree skiing.  They do well in powder, but not amazing.  When doing high speed large open turns, the tips tend to dive.  These skis are not made for high energy big mountain style skiing (its also not what they're designed to do, so not an entirely fair criticism).  I mounted these with touring bindings and found them to be a perfect partner in the back-country.  Light and easy for the ups, and good on the down.  The tips tend to dive in any high energy situation, like landing jumps.  I found that unless I was directly on top of these puppies I had trouble controlling them - they don't like a back seat driver, and being way forward is definitely not advantageous either.  
On hardpack or groomers, they carved beautiful turns.  I found at high speeds they tended to "chatter" and started to lose edge control.  
Overall a great west coast powder ski for anyone looking to rip it on many parts of the mountain.  I'm mounting mine up with tele's this year and prepping for my new Crown Satori's, which I'm hoping will not disappoint!
2008 Rossignol Scratch Girl BC Ski - Women's
Description:

At home in the pipe or the pow, the Rossignol Scratch Girl BC is a stylie ski built with female freeskiers in mind. But make no mistake, this ski can hang with the boys. The Scratch Girl BC boasts all the features of the legendary Scratch line, including Rossignol s patented Weight Reduction System, lively and stable wood core, durable Rossitop cap construction, and a dynamic flex that progresses from stiff underfoot to soft at the tips and tails for a poppy, forgiving feel. But the Scratch Girl BC is designed with the female anatomy in mind and Rossignol s F.I.T (Feminine Intuitive Technology) adjusts for a woman s lower center of gravity and unique stance. The ski s fat waist floats in the fluff, and its lightweight make airs a breeze.
