Rossi's serious about powder skiing. Consider this: It offers eight models between 83 and 110 mm. For more of a directional (non-twin) powder ski, consider something from the rugged, proven Bandit line. But if you're ready to rock a backcountry twin with youthful graphics, the Brigade-part of the jib-ready Scratch family-offers sufficient integrity tempered with a lightweight, playful feel that made it one of the more category's more forgiving rides. "Good all-around powder ski," said Woods. "Does everything, without too much effort."
Backcountry jibbing, never growing up.
High speeds in challenging conditions.
