What to replace my Rossi S3s with?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I bought a pair of double rockered Rossi S3s, over 3 years ago, and felt like I'd rediscovered skiing, they have been tons of fun in almost every condition, especially bumps, and trees. 

 

My only regret is, not knowing the ski short, I bought them short and after 3 years of hard skiing they've gone a bit soft. 

 

So I'm ready for a slightly longer ski, something a bit stiffer than the original version for New England "packed powder" and I don't mind if they are a little more demanding to ski. The version I have are so forgiving any intermediate would love them, but as an expert I'm don't mind something  one notch up.

 

And since Rossi came out with the S3 a ton of double rockered skis have shown up.

 

Any suggestions for New England "packed powder", tight moguls, tree skiing and the annual trip to B.C.?

FYI, 60, started skiing when I was 4, ski 35 days a year, 160 pounds dry and can keep up with most experts.

The S3 has been updated/replaced for next year. It is called the Sin 7. It is the same shape, but stiffer. I talked to a man that had demoed it, said it was a fantastic ski and he was buying it as soon as it was available. I have not found any online reviews for it yet. I am waiting to try it myself, as a possible replacement for my S3's. Something for you to look for.

Also, for better edge holding on hard snow, have them tuned with 3 degree side and 1 degree base bevels. It makes a huge difference.

Just tell her it's pronounced "sine" as in the function. They named it for what the graph from your altimeter watch looks like at the end of the day. Why they decided to use the calculator/programmer notation rather than the full form of the word I have no idea.
