Reviewer Mary T

"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!"

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.

Rossignol about the Temptation 88

"With the heart of a high-performance carving machine and effortless freeride feel, the new women's TEMPTATION 88 is the all-mountain benchmark for expert skiers. Now featuring revolutionary Air Tip technology; our most versatile blend of rocker and camber; and a powerful basalt-enhanced sandwich construction, the Temptation 88 offers award-winning all-mountain versatility across all terrain and snow conditions. Auto Turn Rocker blends powerful edge grip with effortless maneuverability and speed control while patented Air Tip technology enhances floatation and control even further, keeping tips afloat through variable snow and providing smooth turn initiation on hardpack and groomers. It's racing DNA meets freeride. Precision and power meets effortless float. It's everything you need for the ultimate one-ski-quiver. The entire mountain awaits – LET TEMPTATION RULE", says Rossignol.
