The Rossignol Experience 83 makes a great ski for the intermediate to advanced skier. A layer of Basalt on top of the wood core adds lots of stiffness and stability without adding extra weight to the ski so you have a very lively ski that can be stable at high speeds. Rossignol's Auto Turn Rocker has 30% Rocker in the tip and tail, and 70% Camber underfoot. The Tip Rocker will help you enter a turn smoother, make your ski easier to control in powder while the camber underfoot will keep you stable while you are in the turn improving edge hold. The tail rocker will help you exit your turns very easy. The Extended Sidecut gives you more sidecut when you angle your skis more for tighter carves and less sidecut the less angle you put on your edges for a more maneuverable ski. The Cascade Tip on the Experience 83 has staggered layers of laminates to lower the swing weight of the ski, controls tip torsion and gives you full edge contact when you really step on it. At 83mm in the waist you can sample some of the light powder and crush the crud when the groomers haven't been around in a while to smooth out a path for you. A Central Sidewall gives you vertical sidewalls underfoot for a strong grip on the snow while the cap construction on the tip and tail gives you a forgiving feel. If you are looking for a ski that will help you be a better skier and still not be overbearing the Rossignol Experience 83 Skis will help you experience the mountains in an entire new way.

Hey, it's Tyler and I'm here with the Rossi Experience 83 and it was a really fun ski. I'll give it a 4 out of 5 stars. It's, ya know, a really nimble ski, really playful. You can cruise on all the groomers and it's a great frontside carving ski but it's also it can be used as a pretty nice all-mountain as well. I'd probably say it's more of an intermediate-to-advanced-intermediate ski being in the Experience line if you think you're looking for a little bit more of an all-mountain ski I'd go a little bit bigger with some of the other stuff in the line but anything for all. Frontside and groomers and a little bit of all-mountain, I think this would be a ski for you.
Trey here with the Rossignol Experience 83. I'll give this ski 4 out of 5 stars. I think it's an excellent intermediate-to-advanced-intermediate frontside ski. It's really, really easy to turn. It kind of hooks up and turns for you. If you like to make real quick turns and kind of like a poppy ski, I think you'll really enjoy this. You can still lay it over and make longer turns but it's really happier making real quick edge-to-edge turns. So, 4 out of 5.
Hi, I'm Steve. I just got off the Rossi Experience 83. I give this ski 3.5 out of 5 stars. I found that it was very quick from edge-to-edge but a little bit grabby. If you like a ski that just is boom-boom-boom back-and-forth for hard pack or soft snow conditions, you could like this ski. I prefer the Experience 88. I thought that the move up to the 88 width ski made the ski feel a lot more stable, a little wider arc turns, and little more smooth in the transition.
This is Hans. I just came off the Rossignol Experience 83. The Experience 83 is a really interesting ski. It's got a sidewall construction underneath the foot and a cap in the front so it's very forgiving, initiates a turn real easy but holds pretty well in higher speed. It's definitely a great ski for the aspiring advanced skier. I give this ski a 4 out of 5.
Kyle here with the Rossignol Experience 83. I really like this ski so I gave it a 4.5 stars out of 5. For anyone that's hard-charging, just trying to do those quick, sharp, really fast carves, this is going to be good for you. Holds an edge really well. Give it a shot.
A: At your height and weight you should go with the 184cm length. Given the tip and tail rocker that this ski has the 176cm length will not provide the support and stability someone your size would need.
