The Rossignol S3 Womens is the same great ski as the mens just with a womens construction. A great ski for women who want to destroy the entire mountain. At 96mm underfoot she is wide enough to surf and smear in the untracked snow, but quick and stable enough to rip up medium to long radius turns on the groomers. Rossi's Powder Turn Rocker is a blend of tip and tail rocker with camber underfoot floats on top of the powder, and gives you great edge grip on the hard pack. Rossignol's WRS (Weight Reduction System) maximizes the skis durability and reduces the overall weight by 400 grams. A Centered Sidecut has a deep radius for edge grip and power underfoot, while the short length of sidecut makes the ski steer easier and very playful. The Rossignol S3 Womens is a great ski for women who want to take on any condition with power and control.

Hey Jess here. Just got of the Rossignol S3. This ski is a good mid-weight ski. I'd give this ski a 3 out of 5 stars. It's not super responsive right away you kind of have to put a lot of power into it and really initiate the turn. It's not going to do that for you, but if you're an advanced skier, this is a great ski to really improve your skiing and get you around those really well. I would suggest this as a good all mountain ski that can also go in back country because it's got a little bit of a rocker.
Hi I'm Julie, I just got of the Rossignol S3 women's version. I give this ski 4.5 out of 5 stars. I think it's a really nice smooth ski very easy to make a turn. Nice and playful. It's a little bit narrower than the S7. So for somebody that looking to do some off pist skiing as well as rip up the groomers this is a really versatile ski. Great tip rocker and tail rocker makes it really easy to iniitiate the turn so you can really ski this thing if you're making parallel skidded turns all the way up through ripping high speed carves. There is definitely a It's a great ski for that kind of person.
This is Emily. I just got off the Rossignol womens S3. I give this ski a 4 out of 5 for an intermediate to advanced skier. The reason I give it a 4 out of 5 I thought it was a little bit too sluggish in and out of the turns for my liking but for more of that intermediate skier who's realling starting to get their carves down and looing to get into a ski that will excel in fresh snow as well as on hardpack, then I would recommend this for you. So a 4 out of 5 for that kind of skier. It's a fun playful ski. If you're an intermediate to intermediate advanced skier I think you'd get a lot out of it.
Hi this is Kathy with the Rossignol S3 women's ski. It's a powder ski I've tested under crud conditions and it was very nice through it. It floats you through at the top really great. It turned easily, nice skidded turns with it. It's an intermediate to advanced level ski so I think it's going to do you really well when you're headed for the mountains giving you the ability to make those more rotating kinds of turns rather than carving turns. But I could still get it up on edge though too, when I started really picking up speed it's starting to get a little bit unstable but that's not what it's designed for on the hardpacked that were testing on today. So, when you keep it under those powder It's going to be a wonderful ski. Overall I give it 4/5 for what it's made for.
Hi I'm Julie, I just got off the Rossignol S3 women's specific ski. I give it a five out of five stars. It's a great wide ski designed for soft snow, tree skiing etc. But what the sidewall construction to it it does is it makes it actually have really great edge grip for the groomers for at the end of the day when you have to make it into the lodge. It gives you nice fun turns all the way down. Amazing graphic on this ski this year, the base just looks fantastic. I mean, who spends time making a base look pretty? But Rossignol did and it looks great. I thought it was nicer, responsive, a little soft in the tip and gets a smidge chattery but just in the tip, the body of the ski is still ripping on the groomers. I give it a five out of five stars.
This is the Rossignol S3 and I have to say I was really surprised by this ski. I'm going to give it a five out of five star rating. I wasn't that blown away with some of the rockers I've skied on, this level of ski, this is for the lady that is a good skier, parallel turner, maybe not ready to tackle everything steep and deep. This will let her do it. This is an awesome ski, it has a lot of properties to it that I like in a carving ski and I was surprised at that. It's a 168 and it actually skied much shorter. It was very quick and nimble, it really held well on long radius and medium radius but it was still quick and fun on a short radius turn. Had it on the bumps and our bumps here are a little icy and choppy. it still performed really well! I also thought the graphics on these were outstanding, you can't really see the sublimated print but trust me, they are beautiful. They are really done well and the bases on these are amazing too. All and all this ski was a lot of fun to ski on. It's just that one ski quiver. It's got that powder rock so if I was going to go out west and take one ski I have to say I enjoyed taking this one. I can ski it everywhere, I've got a hard pack groomer, if I got nice soft fun snow this would be the one. I would take this Rossignol S3, just a lot of fun to ski on and it's a gorgeous ski to ski on too.
The weight of the skis will vary based on the length. Unfortunately, Rossignol doesn't publish the weight for each size. My best guess would be roughly 7-9 pounds, but I can't say for sure.

Q: What binding is recommended for this ski, 168 cm? Is the Axium 110 XL compatible?
A:Any binding with a brake between 95-105mm will be compatible and a correct fit for this ski. The Axium 110 XL has a 100mm brake and is certainly compatible with this ski and would be a good option if you are an intermediate or casual skier. If you are more advanced or aggressive you should look for a more performance inspired binding such as the Rossignol Axial 2 120 XL or the Marker Griffon.
