Rossignol S6 Freeride: Alpine Skis Reviews

ROCK THE GLOP

The little brother of Rossi's S7 powder ski, the new S6 features U Rocker—bent up at the tip and tail, flat underfoot. As you'd expect, it floats in crud and fluff, but that flat section adds edging confidence. You can arc the ski into a big sweeping turn on hardpack or pivot and slough it through the trees. "Floats between turns and made me feel like a better skier than I am," said one tester. Mount it back 2 mm for powder, forward 5 mm for a jib feel, or on the mark for freeriding. 140/110/133;
FLOAT: 5
HARD-SNOW PLEASURE: 4
