Rossignol hit the nail on the head with the Experience 88. This has been a tester favorite the last three years whenever Skis.com sends a team of testers to industry demos. The Auto Turn Rocker is a unique blend of 30% tip and tail rocker with 70% traditional camber underfoot. Tip rocker helps the ski plane on top of the powder, initiate turns quicker on the hard pack and deflect some of the negative energy that you encounter in the bumps and crud. The extended sidecut continues beyond the contact points where the tip and tail rocker start so when you increase the edge angle more sidecut is engaged for powerful edge grip especially on the ice and firm snow. A cascade tip lightens up the tip of the ski for a lower swing weight making the Experience 88 extremely nimble in all conditions. Full length vertical sidewalls give superior edge grip on the hard pack without making the ski too demanding. A layer of Basalt adds to the torsional strength and power of the ski. The Rossignol Experience 88 is a home run! It has plenty of ski for the expert that will spend moderate time off the trail and the intermediate that is looking for some game improvement on the hard pack and in the broken snow. It's a great ski for everyone.

Q: I am a 5'7", 154 pound eastern skier (I ski mostly at Sugarloaf, Jay Peak and Cannon). I've been skiing for over 45 years and can pretty much ski anything and everything - I like bumps, steeps, glades, cruisers, and do a lot of short radius turns. I currently ski on 155 cm Volkl Racetigers SL and love them. However, they are not good in powder or chopped snow so if I ski out west, I rent. Are the Experience 88s stable at high speeds and are they quick in the bumps? Also, what length should I get?

A: The Experience 88 is a great ski for carving at all speeds, and light powder. As far a bumps go the E88's tail profile can be a little hooky, but less than your Racetiger. Based on your weight, ability and height, I would recommend the 164cm.

Q: I have been skiing on Volkl Supersport-Superspeed skis for several years and love them for firm conditions that we often have here in the East. I'm looking for a ski that is a bit more versatile, when conditions are changing and softer and to use when I to West once a year or so. I'm an advanced skier, 5'11', 195 pounds and currently ski on 182cm Volkls above. I have always preferred a "GS" type ski, so I'm wondering if the E88s would be too "turny" for me, going from my current ski and not sure about length either...would the 178 be long enough?

A: Based on your stats and the type of skiing you will be doing, the Rossignol Experience 88's in the 178cm length would actually be a solid option for you. It will be solid in cruddy/icy conditions will being fat enough to give you floating power in deeper conditions. The 178cm length will also be a solid option based on your weight and skill level.

Q: Hi! I'm an aggressive expert skier in Colorado looking for a wider all mountain ski that will still be good in the bumps (my favorite). I'm 5' 9" and 170 lbs. Trying to decide between the 170 or 178 Rossi E88. What do you think would be best?

Q: Hi. I'm a 6'4" 130 lb. advanced-intermediate and do most of my skiing on the east coast, so stability on hard pack and crud is key. Most of my skiing is on-piste carving, though I also like to do some glade and bump skiing. I'm wondering if this would be a good ski for me, and more importantly, whether I should go with the 178 or 186 size. My current skis are 180s. Thanks.

A: The Rossignol Experience 88's will be a solid ski for the advanced intermediate skier looking to take their abilities to the next level. The 88's will hold their edge and be super nimble side to side, while still being fat enough to float in pow and provide stability when needed. Based on your stats, I would go with the 178cm length, which would already be at the upper end of your ideal size range.

Q: Hi, I just purchased a pair of rossi exp 88 in a 186. I am 6ft 5 and 210lbs. I have a pair of marker 1200 pistons which are brand new. Could I use them on this ski. Usually I put a plate under the bindings but am guessing I would not need to do that with this binding. Please help
Asked : Feb 18, 2014
By : james, seattle
Know the answer? Answer this question
A: As long as the Marker 1200 Piston bindings have a brake width of at least 90mm (but no more than 100mm) they will work with the Rossignol Experience 88 skis.

Q: Hi, I'm an aggressive int./adv. skier, 5'6", 165#. I like skiing fast, and am also trying hard to get good at moguls (but with control, not zipperline-type stuff). I've skied a pair of Fischer Fire RX 165s for the past year, and seem to be at their limits. Would the E88's be a good choice? And what size would you recommend?

A: For the advanced skier looking to progress, the Rossignol Experience 88 skis would be solid in allowing you to continue to progress and grow skill wise. Based on your stats I would recommend a set of skis such as the 88's in the 167cm to 172cm length.

Q: Hi, I am 6'1", 180 pounds advanced-intermediate skier who enjoys being challenged. Just started skiing steep Blacks and Moguls in New England(Stowe, Sunday River). What would you suggest for bindings, ski sizing on this model? Are there other skis you would suggest? Thanks

Know the answer? Answer this question
A: Yes, these Rossignol Experience 88 Skis will require 90mm bindings and those skis will be very nice for your style and skill. I would size you right around 174cm for these skis

Q: Hello, I'm 25 and athletic--5'8" and 155 lbs. Ski ability is advanced-intermediate, but I'm hoping the next set of skis I purchase will last me a while and allow me to take my skiing to the next level. I ski a few weekends a year in Quebec/NY, with about one trip a year to a further destination (this year is Park City, Utah). I'd like something that will serve me across as many different terrain types as possible, and these skis were recommended to me by a sales staff at a local shop. Now that I'm ready to invest in my own gear after renting through my university years, do these skis represent good value? Are there any other models that I should be considering? Thanks!

A: From what you have described, the Rossignol Experience 88's would be an excellent choice for you. They will be very nimble and quick side to side, but at the same time will be fat enough to give you plenty of floating power on your occasional powder days. In addition to the Experience 88 I would also recommend checking out the Blizzard Brahma's for a solid ski to continue progressing on.

Q: I'm a 35-year-old advanced skier (let's say 7/10) who skis around 10 times per year: half on the east coast, and half on the west. In the east, I ski all runs and look for fresh show in between, and reach my technical limit on steep moguls and steep ice. In the west, I spend more time on the back side and in the trees than on groomers, and meet my match on steep powder and steep/tight trees. Would this be a good ski for me, and if so, can you recommend a size and a binding? My current skis aren't great: six-year-old K2 Apache Rangers, 170cm. Looking for an upgrade that matches my ambitions but is also my speed. THANKS!
Asked : Jan 06, 2014
By : Daniel, United States
Know the answer? Answer this question
A: Based on what you are saying I would probably recommend a ski that is slightly wider than the Experience 88. It sounds line you prefer to of trail as much as possible so a ski with a 94-98mm waist would give you a bit more versatility, without sacrificing too much hard pack performance on the icier east coast days. To achieve the best blend of off trail performance that retains good carving and hard packed performance skis like the Blizzard Kabookie, Atomic Theory, or the Salomon Quest 98 are very good options. They all blend high performance constructions and modern ski shaping into a ski that is easy to ride all day that performs in all conditions. Keep in mind that all these skis have rocker in the tip and tail so you will want to size up from the skis you are currently on. If you weight under 150lbs stay in the 170-174cm range, 150-185lbs look for 174-180cm, and over 185lbs 180cm+.
