Rossignol Vita Sensor 80 (2010)
The Vita feels cozy and comfortable, slides on and off with utmost ease, and provides more steering power than testers expected from a boot this wide (102 mm). The stance is comfortable—nice for a 10-day-a-year skier—and promotes easy balance. “Not too stiff but nicely supportive. Great for intermediates hoping to get better,” said MacConnell.
