Read the Review Transcript: Hey Jess here. Just got of the Rossignol S3. This ski is a good mid-weight ski. I'd give this ski a 3 out of 5 stars. It's not super responsive right away you kind of have to put a lot of power into it and really initiate the turn. It's not going to do that for you, but if you're an advanced skier, this is a great ski to really improve your skiing and get you around those really well. I would suggest this as a good all mountain ski that can also go in back country because it's got a little bit of a rocker.
