Considering her skiers profile:
"I prefer a heavy damp ski, without much rebound. I place emphasis on control and style, no matter the conditions. My favorite memories are double diamond bumps runs with a foot of untracked!"
My favourite freeride skis:

To all my reviews
I'm back on board with Rossignol
Rossignol promotes this ski for expert skiers. I didn't feel that! Right away I found it to be very maneuverable, and easy to turn. Yes, I think it would be best for advanced intermediate and above, but don't shy away from this ski because it is listed for experts. The Temptation 88 has excellent edge hold and is very stable. The new enhanced sandwich construction adds a nice damping, with none of that nasty rebound effect. The 88 width carves up the bumps, with superb damping, and transitions through piles with ease. This ski will not disappoint you for a one ski quiver. A great resort ski, that I would have loved to try in Vail's back bowls! The Rossignol Temptation 88 has enough power to carve GS turns, then take you through crud without a whimper.
Who is this ski for?
If you want a one ski quiver that is powerful yet forgiving.
