The 2023 Rossignol Blackops Gamer, a big mountain ski. An on-snow review of Rossignol's powder ski of choice, plus weight and full specs.
The Gamer is the same ski as the old Black Ops 118, and it's a burly ski for skiers who charge hard. I personally find them too heavy, but I am 135lbs and tend to like lighter, poppier skis than these. With next to no taper and above-average weight for the sizing, I struggle with the swingweight. But for those who want something chargy, but also value landing switch and jibbing, these are a great option. They are damp, they ski cruddy snow powerfully and they still have playful DNA. I know plenty of skiers who claim these are the best skis they've ever ridden. - @Twig

Float it. Stomp it. Blast it. The Blackops Gamer is the tool of choice for full gas freeride performance. Solid when it counts and playful all the time, it has the width to float and smear through the deepest days and the stability to stick every landing. Race-developed construction and a lively wood core blend for the power to get creative.
