Ski review Rossignol Experience 83
Easy turning all-mountain ski
When testing the Rossignol Experience 83 I got that comfortable feeling of my grandfathers armchair. This all-mountain ski features a little rocker in front, which causes no vibrations in the tip. The quite large rocker at the tail makes for effortles turning. Even at high speed this ski remains exceptionally tranquil. Very very comfortable. But not challenging.
Cheapest price we found Rossignol Experience 83 ski for sale:
In spite of the armchair feeling and all its tranquillity, the Rossignol Experience 83 carves pretty good big turns. It never drifts away, when you put the pressure on in a fast turn. At lower speed this ski is easy to turn as well. Even chopped-up snow the Experience 83 handles really well. Whatever the circumstances you get tremendous control from this ski.
Intemediate - Advanced
70% piste - 30% off-piste
Fast and slow easy turn
Comfortable but precise
Like sitting in an armchair
This ski is made for...
Those intermediate to advanced skiers who pursue extreme comfort and control, but like the occasional good wide carving turn as well. If however you want a ski that challenges you to go to extremes, don't take the Rossignol Experience 83. You'll get bored pretty soon.

The Rossignol Experience 83 is a good all-mountain ski. But in its class it's not the best. If you want comfort and control and exitement in addition, I would rather take the Nordica Fuel or the Elan Amphibio Wavflex 82XTI. Those skis have plenty of comfort and control as well. But in addition they are much more challenging and fun to ski than the Experience 83. The Rossignol Experience 78 is better than the Experience 83.
