2008 Elan 999 Wood Ski

Posted

Pros: Elan build quality and durability

Cons: too soft for big aggressive skiers

I had the older model with metal in them.  Mounting point was really far forward, and they were too soft for me.  More of a fat twin than a big mountain charger.

Your dad would like them.

Description:

The Elan 999 Wood Ski caters to skiers who want a powder fatty that doesn t sacrifice groomer-ripping performance. This ski delivers with heavy lumber, on piste and off. Rugged sidewall construction provides major torsional rigidity and a laminated wood core gives this ski a relatively stiff yet smooth, progressive flex for high speed carving on firm snow. The 99mm waist excels in the light and white the lifted tail offers increased maneuverability front to back while sketching into steep chutes and critical couloirs.
