The Rossignol Smash 7 is a perfect ski for the adventurous beginner to intermediate skier looking to test their skills anywhere on the mountain. The 92mm waist width will give you ample support as cruise down a groomer that may have some crud or light moguls, cut through your first tree turn, or find that first stash of knee deep powder. The Smash 7 is made with the forgiving RossiTop Cap Construction that is designed perfectly for the beginner or mellow intermediate skier to have lots of control and responsiveness, without putting too much extra energy into the ski. A Centered Sidecut allows you to have easy steering, playfulness, and edge grip directly underneath your feet. The Smash 7 uses Powder Turn Rocker that has a high amount of rocker in the tip that will give you easy turn initiation, vibration absorption, and floatation. Camber underfoot will deliver a solid grip on the snow, and rocker in the tail will give you easy exits from your turns, and improved soft snow skiing ability. If you are a beginner to intermediate skier, and are looking for the perfect ski to allow you to explore more than just the groomers, the Rossignol Smash 7 is the ski for you.

Was nervous at first after seeing other reviews, but these skis exceeded my expectations! Handled powder and packed powder extremely well. They gripped on icy patches, were fluid, and I felt comfortable on them. I've been skiing for 15+ years and consider myself to be advanced-intermediate, these skis were a great upgrade from my parabolic skis.
Hi I'm Adam and I was just skiing on the Rossignol Smash 7. I give this ski 5 out of 5 stars. For what it is and who it's for, it's really the best and most progressive option out there for the beginner to mellow intermediate skier. 92 underfoot with Powder Turn Rocker, it's really, really manageable in all kinds of different snow conditions. It's very stable at speed, easy to turn and it can really kind of motor through a little bit of variable snow, especially for me skiing it at about two sizes too small. I give it 5 out of 5 stars.
Hi I'm Thom, I just got off the Rossignol Smash 7. This is a 5 out of 5 star ski for me. This thing is super fun. It's definitely aimed for your beginner level skier, somebody who has maybe rented a handful of times and is looking to get their first set of skis but doesn't want to go the traditional carving ski route. They want something that's really fun and really playful. Got a twin tip to it so you can take it in the park if your want to. It's wide enough under foot that it can tackle the entire mountain; crud, bumps, the tree line here or there. It's going to give you a ski that's very stable, very predictable but has a platform where you can really explore and experience the entire mountain. Just a wonderful option for that entry level skier. 5 out of 5 stars.
Rossignol Smash 7 Skis with Xelium 100 Bindings 2016
I purchased these skis in late December and have skied them at Arapahoe Basin, Keystone, and Breckenridge. I have to say that both the skies and the bindings have exceeded my expectations.
The Rossignol Smash 7 Skis are easy to use and feel and react great.
I am a beginner intermediate and these are my first set if skis. Have used rentals always but this year decided to get my own. Took a few runs to get used to them but once I was set, I enjoyed them very much. The major disappointment for me is that after just three days of usage, when I got home I noticed rust all along the edges. There was also minor pitting.
A:This would make a perfect ski for a skier her size, ability and terrain choices. I would recommend the 150cm size. There is also a girls version of the same ski with more feminine colors called the Sassy 7.

Q: I'm 27 6ft - 190 lbs. I've ski for the first time last week and wanted to invest in my own gear for the right cost. I ski the North East primarily. I'm already able to ski blue's and lower level blacks. Would this be a good ski for me?
A:This ski is designed and built for "tween" skiers who are transitioning from junior equipment into adult equipment. We don't really recommend this ski for larger or more capable adult skiers. If you were looking for a solid ski to cruise blue and black runs the Rossignol Experience 80 HD would be a much better option for you. If you really wanted something in the twin tip category however, the K2 Sight or Blizzard Regulator would be great options.

Q: I am 45 year old male... athletic, but only an intermediate/advanced intermediate skier, getting back into it after a number of years away with my kids. Last skis were Blizzard Magnum 7.6 (2010), size 177. I love the skis, but want something more nimble and playful, great for short radius, quick turns, with a more forgiving tail section. Also, I weigh in at 245, 6'0. Thank you...
A:The Smash 7 is really designed as a ski for tween's who are transitioning out of junior equipment but don't quite have the strength to push a full adult ski yet. We generally don't recommend these for adult skiers. If you were to go with the Smash 7 you would absolutely need the 180. I would recommend that you consider the Atomic Vantage 85 (181cm) or the Salomon QST 85 (185cm) for a fun all mountain ski that will help you get back into skiing and allow you to progress quickly if you wish.

Q: I am an advanced skier. Will this ski suit me if I am planning on skiing half on the groomer, and half in powder?

A:If you are an advanced skier, the Smash 7 will not offer you the stability and responsiveness that you need. It is more suited for a beginner to intermediate skier. You should take a look at the new Rossignol Sky 7HD for half the time on the groomers, and half the time in the powder.

Q: How would the Smash 7's perform in intermediate or advanced moguls? I like to take it easy but want to be able to go anywhere other than the expert areas.
A:The Smash 7 is designed to take beginner to aspiring intermediate skiers to new terrain without being overly demanding or challenging to ski. If you are a more aggressive skier, with strong technique, this might not be the ski that you are looking for. I would suggest the new Rossignol Sky 7 HD.

Q: Age 70 but still ski blue cruisers. Have older pair of K2 Apache Raiders and have rented K2 AMP all mountain skis last 2 years which were good especially at end of day when crud and small moguls build up. Not aggressive skier mostly blue cruiser. Weigh 175 6' 1" tall. Price point is good. Is this as forgiving as a K2 similar ski? Any Salomon ( previous owner ) or K2 alternatives to recommend?
A:Based on your age and the terrain that you primarily ski, I do not think that this is the best option for you. In my experience the 92mm waist would feel a little sluggish on shorter edge to edge carves for you. If you were spending more time off the groomers this would be a good option.
