We got our hands on the brand new Rossignol Soul 7 hd. Thet have completely redesigned it for this season.
The honeycomb goes longer down, reducing the weight of the ski, and then it has been reenforced, make it more stiff. It should perform better on piste, than the previous, but I like the playfulness of the old one more. No dought, it is a fantastic ski, but for my kind of skiing I like the old one more.
I would still like to try it out with a freestyle binding, because til will make et more flexible.
The chairlift trick, is when you need to use your hands, and want to get you poles out of the way, without dropping them. Stick them under you leg, so you will be sitting on them, and wolla, you are free to use your hands.
Very important is, that you will have to remove them before lifting up the bar, or the will be in the way of the footrest.
That is it for or 4 day season start in SÃ¶lden, Austria.
