Elan 888 (2010)

Elan 888 (2010)

The aluminum top sheet lent this ski a damp, grippy, snow-hugging feel—markedly different from anything else in the category. After an easy hookup, the ski gave the sensation of deeply incising the snow as it crossed the hill. Fat and floaty in powder and surprisingly nimble for its width. PLUS: Great shock absorption. Steering these through big, fast GS turns felt like driving a Lincoln Town Car. MINUS: Tough to mash it into short benders.

Ok, so here's a review for a ski from last year...which I plan on skiing until it delaminates...seriously. Cuts through powder, crushes crud, and grinds groomers like some kind of Kitchen Aid appliance made for celebrity chefs. I don't agree with the 'expert' label. The only thing needed to make this ski show you the gravy is to throw your weight into it on dense, high moisture, snow conditions. Performance in trees makes you feel like you're friends with Friar Tuck and you're ripping off the rich with their over priced Volkl 'I'm a skiing tourist who shops at Sports Ch...' gear. Made me realize all over again why I love to get out on the slopes, hyperventilate at altitude, dodging buried trees, while munching on powder bursts in the face.
