Description: Rossignol Slat Skis
Take down your favorite lines with ease on the Rossignol Slat Skis! The powder is falling and you need to get in on the action, but the window of opportunity is closing and you don't have a ski setup that will help you excel in the current conditions. The Slat model skis from Rossignol are just for you, with their auto turn rocker for quick maneuvering and a fiberglass laminate construction that reduces the weight without limiting power transfer. These skis also feature a full length wood core that enhances pop and snap for high performance in the park to help set you apart from the competition.

The Rossignol Slat is a perfect ski for you, great park planks. I always say more ski, more fun so I agree with Tim Parker from Rossi. The 174cm length will be best though a lot of park skiers do enjoy going a little shorter. Your call amigo.
Have fun out there!
Can you center mount these skis? Yes, but personally I don't like a center mounted ski. Especially considering that the Rossignol Slat skis are not symmetrical I'd say that just forward of traditional will work well with the Slat.
The Salomon Z10 ski bindings will work with the Slats as long as the brake you have is wider than the 97mm waist width of the ski.
They are not the same ski, but do have quite similar construction and size specs. The Slats has a Hybrid Auto Turn Rocker Profile where as the Sick Bird (any I can find) have a Camber profile.
first off yes, the jump to a 174 cm length for the slat would be fine for you that ski does really well in the park and in the back country kinda fun in the bumps as well. For Bindings I would suggest either the Axial 3 120B100 or the FKS 120 B95. The Axial3 is the less expensive of the two bindings. Both are excellent performers.
He does not want to snowboard but yet will want to be skiing where they are snowboarding so maybe this is the ski for him?
It needs to be good for just normal downhill skiing though too. We live in Minnesota so that is where he will be skiing.
The Rossignol Slat skis would be a great ski for all-mountain freestyle skiing in the mid-west.
Hope this helps. Let me know if you need any more info and shred hard!
