2014 Rossignol Experience 88 Ski


Pros: Likes to be doing something, particularly turning.

Cons: High speed stability is it's limits. Not for the more powerful of skiers.


The 2014 Rossi Experience 88 returns to the line up physically unchanged but with a slight evolution in graphics. I am glad that Rossi didn't change what worked with this ski, a hard snow biased 88 that was was great for a finesse skier that wanted precision out of their ski. What I like about the E88 is it's ability to make a tight turn but because of the early rise in the tip and tail, the Experience never felt nervous like a some of the narrower hard snow counterparts, the E88 even with it's aggressive shape could be worked through the turn pretty easily. The E88 definitely rewards a good technical skier.
