- Most playful ski in this class
- Fun in all turn shapes
- Meets a lot of different needs for different skiers
- Has a speed limit
- More West Coast than East Coast carver
Rossignol's Pursuit HP shines when it comes to turn initiation and forgiveness.
A ski for lift-served skiers who prefer groomed and hardpacked to packed powder conditions.
Rossignol is killing it with their expanded, re-innovated 7 series, but the Pursuit HP is the kind of ski that reminds us they also haven’t gotten too far ahead of their mainstream roots. A versatile ski that just shines when it comes to turn initiation and forgiveness, it is perfect for frontside skiers who want to make short and medium radius turns in whatever conditions they find below the lift. “Playful” was a description that got ample use, as was the idea that this ski meets a lot of needs for different pursuits.
On the flipside, compared to some of the hard charging competition, “soft and slow” were also terms used to describe the Pursuit. Pick your passion is our best recommendation, as this is a fun ski for enjoying the mountain, but probably won’t fill the thrill for hardpack rockers looking for a ski to make the hair stand up on the back of their necks.
