Pros: Playful and fun on most terrain
Cons: Not ideal for groomers
Review (inc pro's & con's):
This was the second year in a row that I demo'd the Elysian during the trade shows and it was the second year in a row that it made me grin from ear to ear.
With its adaptive rocker, this ski made it easy to initiate turns on the groomers, and get up on the moguls. At 95mm under foot, it wasn’t the ideal groomer ski but it didn’t make you wish you weren’t on groomers either, all the while giving the vote of confidence to plow through crud and play in the light powder.
This remains a great choice for a light weight woman who wants a one ski quiver with the intent of playing off piste most of the time.
