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.

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.
Hey, Lucas here. Just got off the Smash 7 by Rossignol. This ski is very great for a beginner to intermediate level skier. I'm going to give it 3.5 out of 5 stars. Better preferred the long turns to short. Not too much of a sidecut for me but it performed pretty well and definitely for a entry-level skier.
I'm Adam and I was just skiing on the Rossignol Smash 7. I give this ski 5 out of 5 stars. It's a fantastic ski for that beginner to intermediate skier who is going to definitely try to challenge them self with some variable conditions and kind of dabble everywhere on the mountain. It has Rossignol's Powder Turn Rocker which makes it really, really maneuverable. I found it really stable at speed and it was really easy to control. So, if you're a beginner to intermdiate skier looking for a good, well-rounded ski - Rossignol Smash 7.
Hi, I'm Andy and this is the Rossignol Smash 7. It's a beginning to intermediate all-mountain wide ski. It's very stable at speed. It's got good edge grip. It's also very nice at lower speeds doing short turns and also spinning around and going backwards. Anyway it's a very fun ski. I give it a 5 stars.
Hi, this Hans. I just came off the Rossignol Smash 7. This is a great ski for that tweener coming off a junior ski. Lightweight skier, obviously, up to about 140-150 lbs. on that peticular length ski. You want to go out west with it, it's 92 underneath the foot. You wanna go play in the park, it will do everything right. I give that ski 3 out of 5 for the appropriate age skier.
Josh here. Just got off the Smash 7 by Rossignol. I give this ski 4 out of 5 stars. It would be an awesome kind of all-mountain ski for beginner to intermediate skier. Held a pretty solid edge in the longer radius turns. Nice, stable, held its speed. Short medium turns pretty well but it wanted to kind of do a longer arcing carve. It's got a little bit of tip rocker in it, a little bit of tail rocker. It would be a nice ski if you really wanted kind of that like I said beginner to intermediate skier that wants a ski that can really go anywhere, do anything on the mountain. 4 out of 5 stars.
Kyle here with the Rossignol Smash 7. I absolutely love this ski for what it is. It's going to be your entry-level park kid that just wants to start to get into it. But honestly for the price that it's at, you can't beat it. This ski has a lot to offer and, you know, I just think it's well worth the money and then some. So, 5 out of 5 - Rossignol Smash 7. If you're a park kid and you want to hop on a ski, here it is.
Hi, I'm Thom and I just got off of the Rossignol Smash 7. This is a 5 out of 5 star ski. It's really geared for your beginner to low-level intermediate type skier who is looking to be a little bit more adventurous and explore the entire mountain. It's a little wider platform than most skis in this category so it's super versatile. But the thing's just fantastically easy to ski. Very mellow but it gets up on edge and it carves a real turn. So, if you're looking to really push yourself, learn some solid skiing technique, this is an absolutely great ski to do it on and it can take you all over the hill. 5 out of 5 stars.
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.
