    I'm a Level 3 cert ski instructor. On the snow all day, with abilities that range from never ever to steeps and trees. Experience 88 is my go to ski when I want the best for any conditions coming my way.

          Comments about Rossignol EXPERIENCE 88:

          It used to be that an 88mm under foot ski provided better flotation but compromised edge grip and performance on harder snow. You don't have to compromise with the E88. An all-mountain platform with a race ski feel. I used it all winter on the hardpack of Ontario and when I went out west to softer snow, it was the first ski I grabbed. A true "do everything" ski.

              This ski can be skied anywhere, with confidence.Advanced intermediate to expert will find positive feedback from this ski. Forgiving, stable at speed, great edge grip on the groomers, easy turn initiation, fun in the pow. You can't go wrong with this ski. Short turns or long cruisers, the 88 will give you a great ride!

                  I like to ski the E88 when there is recent snow out there and I'm feeling like playing around the mountain. It's a very versatile product : wide enough to play in the snow, smooth enough to keep some legs for tomorrow but still offers the potential to perform on the edges. Its great versatility might as well be his fault, since one could say that it's not wide enough for deep snow and not hard enough for big carving. I just think it's the perfect ski for the polyvalent skier!
