The Rossignol Squad 7 is a fat ski made for powder, and we found it performs better in the fluff than any other ski in the shop. Its basalt fibers give it a lighter, damper feel, allowing it to arc through groomers and pop through bumps; we easily maneuvered around trees during our test runs in everything from deep snow to spring crud.
