If you spend the majority of your time west of the Rockies, mobbing through day-old powder, ripping steep lines, and charging the occasional groomer, you'll fall head over heels for the Rossignol Temptation 100 Women's Ski. It's an all-mountain cruiser, but with a versatile 100mm waist width, it's bigger than a lot of east-coast powder skis, so it won't feel out of its depth when the flakes start to pile up.It might not be the most versatile ski in Rossignol's all-mountain lineup (that honor probably goes to the Temptation 88), but the Temptation 100 is easily the most comfortable in deep, uneven snow and at high speed. It sports the same Auto Turn Rocker as all of Rossi's all-mountain rippers, with camber underfoot for edge grip and a gently rockered tip and tail to make short work of boot-deep powder, tight trees, and rough storm leftovers. The sidecut's been extended, too, to provide more edge contact when you lay the ski over without sacrificing the ability to pivot quickly when you keep it flat, so you can rip groomers one lap andslice your way through glades the next.Even though the Temptation has a titanal laminate to help keep the ski stable at speed, the Temptation is a surprisingly nimble ski, thanks in large to the snappy, lively poplar core that's stiff enough to be driven hard and light enough that it won't ever feel like it's in charge. It uses Rossignol's trademark Air Tip construction to keep weight down and eliminate tip chatter that can be a problem for rockered skis, and it is built with a hybrid Minicap sandwich construction, which combines cap and sandwich designs for a top-shelf combo of edge hold and lightness. If you split your time between off-piste and on, and can't wait for the deeper days, the Temptation 100 is likely to take the top spot in your quiver.
