Rossignol Experience 83 Flat: The Rossignol Experience 83 is an incredibly versatile all- mountain ski with exceptional pivot-ability and edge grip, allowing your carved turns to be precise and powerful. With an 83mm waist, the ski has an ideal girth for those who are looking to spend unhindered time on all of the terrain the mountain has to offer. The Experience 83s are narrow enough to feel like GS skis on wide-open faces, with a traditional camber underfoot. Yet, with a rockered tip and tail, the 83s will float more easily in powder than a similar ski without early rise camber. The rocker of the tip and tail will also aid in turn initiation, so you’ll never feel locked in a turn during a quick transition on the front side, or a tight maneuver in the trees. This ski is perfect for all-mountain skiing for the skier who slightly favors front side skiing.
Cascade Tip - The new Cascade Tip in Rossignol skis is composed of staggered metal and fiberglass laminates, lightening-up the tip. The engineered layering buffers tip torsion, keeping your edge in contact with the snow through your turns, and smoothing your turn transitions.
Central Dualtec – The combination of sandwich and cap construction results in smooth flex and strong edging, giving the skis more comfortable control. The cap reinforces the ski, providing increased durability and consistent rebound. The traditional sidewalls will foster maximum edge pressure underfoot.
Extended Sidecut - The sidecut of the Experience 88 Rossignol skis extends in the rockered tip and tail to provide increased stability at high speeds. In powerful turns, with high edge angles, more sidecut surface area engages as the rockered regions come into tighter contact with the snow under flex, giving you the edge grip you’d expect from traditional camber Rossignol skis. The agility of the Experience 88 Rossignol skis at low speeds is also increased as a result of less ski-snow contact with the rockered tip and tail.
I recently rented the Rossi men's EXPERIENCE 83 from Christy's in Park City and had the best skiing experience pardon the pun of my 69 years! These skis are very responsive and give you a little push as you initiate the next turn.If I thought I would have a longer Ski Life I would certainly purchase this ski.

The Rossignol Experience 83 is a very versatile ski with great characteristics that are best on groomed snow. The waist of the Experience 83 is better on groomed conditions than deep snow but it is very lively and quick edge to edge! I recommend this ski for anyone who likes a quick turning ski that is stable at speeds. I would say any intermediate skier would fall in love with this in a flash!
