Some days call for fat powder boards and others for skinny groomer-demolishing skis, but everything in between is prime territory for the Rossignol Temptation 88 Women's Ski. It's a true quiver-killer, designed to handle everything the mountain throws at it, from leftover pow stashes, to small moguls, to bulletproof hardpack, all with a cheeky smile and killer sense of fun. At 88mm underfoot, the Temptation 88 isn't the biggest ski in Rossignol's all-mountain line (that honor goes to the Temptation 100), but it might be the most versatile. 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 and slither your way through glades the next. Although she can go fast without an issue, the Temptation is a nimble ski, thanks in large part to the snappy, lively poplar core and basalt fiber, which make the ski stiff enough to be driven hard and light enough that it won't ever feel like it's in charge. The Temptation uses Rossignol's trademark Air Tip construction to keep weight down and eliminate the tip chatter that can be a problem for rockered skis, and it's built with a durable sandwich construction. All this will make the Temptation 88 your go-to coast-to-coast board in all but the deepest and most bulletproof conditions.

The North Cascades have long been known as the North American Alps. Characterized by rugged beauty, this steep mountain range is filled with jagged peaks, deep valleys, cascading waterfalls and glaciers. North Cascades National Park Service Complex contains the heart of this mountainous region in three park units which are all managed as one and include North Cascades National Park, Ross Lake and Lake Chelan National Recreation Areas.
Badgers are animals of open country. Their oval burrows (ten inches across and four to six inches high) are familiar features of grasslands on sandy or loamy soils of the eastern plains or shrub country in mountain parks or western valleys.
