S7 on-piste capabilities

Posted
I bought a pair of Rossi S7 with a Marker Baron early last week before I read this review from Zokinjo. There were plenty other comments making me think this is the right powder weapon for my quiver (besides Nordica Jet Fuel in 178 and an older Rossi Slalom Carver around 165cm). I'm a former ski-instructor, so technically still very fit, physically not so much anymore. Only had a chance to test the S7 on hard pack and some softer spring type conditions later in the day. No powder here in the northern Alps last week  . I also directly compared it with my Nordica the same day. I can share all of Zokinjo's comments about the S7s capabilities on-piste. I was positively surprised I...

Amazing ski

Posted

Pros: Amazing flotation, effortlessly slices through crud and crust, carves well on ice and hardpack

Cons: none

 This ski blows my mind.  It's phenomenal in deep snow.  It floats almost immediately, even in light powder.  It also turns effortlessly in heavy or crusty snow.  But what amazes me the most is how well it performs where other powder skis fail.  It is still fun to ski on groomers and in bumps.  Of course, it's not as quick edge-to-edge as a narrower ski, but it's still pretty good.  Also, it carves well and holds an edge on steep, icy slopes.  I initially intended to use these on deep snow days, but have found them to be versatile enough for all conditions.
