The S7 returns unchanged this year meaning it still offers Powder Turn Rocker, Rossignol's own take on a rocker and camber blend. It still will float well thanks to a wide 115-milimeter waist and, because it uses carbon layers rather than metal in the construction, it will ski lighter than its beefed up sibling, the Super 7. Intermediate to expert skiers would find it a useful powder tool.

Rossignol S7 (2011)

Think you’re not a very good powder skier? Don’t decide till you try the category-crushing S7. There’s nothing special about the construction: A sheet of Titanal gives it just enough power and dampness; 30-degree sidewalls take a beating. The secret’s in the shape. Traditional camber and sidecut underfoot provide a comfy home base. Tip and tail are rockered and reverse-sidecut. The tip is smeary, floaty, undemanding; the tail sinks readily when you need to dump speed. The S7—No. 1 in six criteria—forgives almost any mistake; and we tested the 195 cm. Ski as aggressively as you dare; it bails you out every time. “The ultimate powder tool,” said Preston.
