Rossignol S86W Freeski (2011)

Our female testers liked this one as much as the guys liked their S86. Like the S86, it employs the AmpTek rockered-tips/camber-underfoot concept. It carved zesty medium-radius turns on firm snow, but the rocker allowed for easy disengagement from carves and smeary maneuverability off the corduroy. Sidecut begins farther back from the tip than it does on a groomer-specific ski, allowing the S86W to be steered easily without being hooky. This design worked well in bumps and crud. A true all-mountain freeride ski.
