The Curated Take

By the Expert Community

The Rossignol Blackops 118 might be the best powder ski on the market for resort powder days. Anyone who has skied at a busy resort on a powder day knows you only get 1-2 runs of untracked fresh powder before it's all cut up. The beauty of these skis is they are very heavy and damp, allowing them to just blow through those pockets of choppy snow an hour into your powder day. I fell in love with them when I picked up too much speed going into some choppy snow, and they just stayed totally composed.

Normally, a ski this heavy would be hard to maneuver, but since they have a more center mount, their swing weight feels totally manageable and gives them a more playful, almost park-inspired energy to them. The Blackops also have a surprising amount of camber underfoot, which means they handle better than most skis this wide on firmer terrain, and that means that even when you need to take a groomed run back to the lift or more powder, you can still lay down some great carves. The camber also gives it a little more pop-off jumps.

This ski is perfect for anyone tired of getting bumped around in chopped-up snow after the initial powder day rush. It is also fantastic for some powder day jibbing around the mountain due to its symmetrical shape and close-to-center mount.

Ideal for
  • Resort powder days
  • Playful in powder
  • Very stable in choppy snow
Not ideal for
  • Very heavy
  • Mount point is close to center

The Rossignol Blackops 118 Skis are the ultimate tool for progressive freeride performance. With a solid construction and playful design, these skis are perfect for floating and smearing through even the deepest powder. The lively wood core provides the power needed to get creative on any terrain, while race-developed construction ensures stability and control in all conditions.

Key Features:

  • Progressive Freeride Performance: The Blackops 118 is designed to excel in all freeride conditions, from deep powder to steep chutes.
  • Solid Construction: These skis are built to last with race-developed construction that provides stability and control when it counts.
  • Playful Design: The lively wood core gives these skis a playful feel that encourages creativity on any terrain.
  • Wide Width: With a wide width, these skis provide ample floatation in deep snow while still maintaining stability on hardpack.
  • Versatile Performance: Whether you're hitting big jumps or carving up groomers, the Blackops 118 can handle it all with ease.

Hayden was super helpful
5 /5
I came onto this website not sure what to expect, and I'm walking away with a new pair of skis and bindings that I am confident will work great for me. Hayden was super knowledgable on the many types of skis and helped me with the many many questions I had for him. He was also super fun and light hearted which made my buying experience that much better. I will definitely be recommending Hayden and this website to others looking to buy skis, and will appreciate all he did for me :)

Vince was all around the best
5 /5
Vince and I went back and forth for over a week finding me the perfect gear. He was dedicated to finding me the best deals for my needs, and he was always great with giving me multiple recommendations. When things I wanted went out of stock, or when my original boots didn't fit, he made sure to find me an equally amazing product. I felt cared for and valued as a shopper, and what is the best in my book, is that it was all so humanized as I NEVER felt like I was being pressured into buying anything, which so many retailers do. This guy knows what he is talking about and will make sure you feel confident in your gear purchases!

Jennifer was amazing!

This was our first time not going into an in person shop to purchase gear. Jennifer was knowledgeable and gained my trust to purchase online rather than in person. Would highly recommend (and actually already have) to friends because the experience was effortless and seamless. Thanks Jennifer!
