EDITOR'S PICKS

#1 Rossignol – BC110W


The BC110W is built 17.3 from the same mold as the wildly popular S7, but with different fibers in the core to reduce weight. “This is a great tool for big-mountain skiing,” said one tester. “It carves and shreds with confidence. Maybe a little stiff for jibbing around, but it’s a beast in every other arena.

Redesigned for 2010-2011, the Missbehaved comes back bigger and better. Unlike most girls, the Missbehaved wasn’t afraid to beef up its mid-section, changing from 98 mm underfoot last season to 102 mm for 2011. The ski also has more tip and tail rocker, allowing for more float in the pow.

Stability paired 16.1 with excellent performance in deep snow is the name of the game for this new ski from Elan.
