I grew up skiing as a kid and teenager in BC. During school, I was reduced to skiing just a couple times a year. I've recently got back into skiing more seriously. I picked up all new gear last fall and skied about 20 days this year; mostly at Big White and Whistler. I bought some Rossignol Super 7s with Marker F10 bindings. I wanted a slack country setup and I found this stuff on sale. I've used these skis in all conditions ranging from hard pack groomers to powder days with 40+ cm of fresh snow.
Overall, I really like the Super 7s. I find them to be very easy to ski on. Sure, they don't hold an edge on groomers that well but they're very predictable. I also like being able to slide through stuff. I find the skiing style on these skis to be very forgiving. I'm not a great skier technically but I've gone down all the double black bowls and chutes surrounding the Blackcomb Glacier with no issues on these skis.
I recently demoed a pair of Rossignol Experience 88s and I could not ski on these to save my life. I was catching an edge and falling over constantly. I felt like I was fighting them the entire time.
I'm guessing this is mainly a difference in the style of skiing required. Do all mountain skis require a different ski style compared to wider, freeride skis?
