You say, What? Rossignol has been making skis for Over 100 years! How can that be?

  • In 1937, Emile Allais became world champion on Rossignol skis.
  • With Rossignol Olympic 41 skis, Henri Oreiller became the first French Olympic champion in history, in 1948.
  • In 1956, Laurent Boix-Vives bought the company and started to sell Rossignol skis all over the world.
