Ski companies are always thinking about next year…what will the new trends be, colors, rocker, etc.  It’s no doubt these guys have their hands full especially this time of the year when it seems like every weekend is a trade show and on-snow demo.

As skiers, we are always psyched to see what is on-tap for next year and peep what new gear is on the horizon…which brings us to Rossignol.  Four years ago Rossignol revolutionized pow skis with the cult status S7.  Here is a quick glimpse of Rossi’s 2012 line.

Starting from the left is the Super 7 (now in a 188cm, and 195cm), S7, S3 (the S7′s skinnier bro), S6 Jib (featuring U-Rocker, S5 (now with U-Rocker),  the S4 Xavier Bertoni and Kevin Rolland Pro-Models, and S2 (all mountain twin – with Captain America top sheet).  In the fall we’ll feature a full review, but for now you can drool and rest assure that these skis rip!

The annual SIA trade show has come and gone leaving in its wake an empty convention center and a lot of empty beer cans.  Rather than loading a whole bunch of photos at once, we’re going to put up a few posts on Raise The Bar of vendors that we’re stoked on.  So take a look at some of next year’s gear!

Trew'ed up from the boot up!

Want to know what’s coming out next year, peep new technologies, etc…then stay tuned to Raise The Bar.
Over the next few days we’ll be previewing rad new gear as the show entertains and damages the liver of those in attendance.
