Hi my name is Jeff, I just got done riding the Rossignol Sawblade. I really like this board. Some good ideal conditions are basically just all around the mountain. It should perform well in powder, but groomed trails did really well. I like that it is a bit of a beginner board, but it definitely can extend into some intermediate ranges. And, I didn’t really like that it didn’t really hold the edge too well but, again it’s a really good beginner board.
