Rossignol Experience 100 HD ski review, 2017/2018 men's All-Mountain Back Category, from our equipment experts at powered by Masterfit.

Rossi’s Experience 100 HD sits atop a series of Frontside skis, so its sidecut and baseline are geared for skiing hard snow. This gives it the behavior of a burly carving ski, itching to use its elite, wood and Titanal construction to cut deep trenches into groomed slopes. But the Rossignol Experience 100 HD also possesses super-sized surface area, ideal for navigating through powder. Because the ski is both wide and torsionally rigid, it takes skill and strength to tip it to a high edge angle where it holds its line with the unshakeable grip of a python. This is hardly a limitation for the talented skier who knows how to lay skis over, but it does present a challenge to skiers who are still skidding most of their turns. One tester described the Experience 100 HD's ideal partner as someone who “wants a ski that can handle speed and make medium and long turns everywhere you go. That’s what this ski is all about.”
