I have 5 days on my new Elan Apex 177cm and I think of it as the best all mountain skis I’ve ever been on. Anybody knows side bevel on them, 1° or 2°? I need tune-up and some P-Tex (early season conditions).
5 days but it's like my ski season hasn’t started yet because I’m still itching to get more skis (usually it goes away in mid-season).
Since I like Apex (888 Alu) so much I think of getting either 999 Alu (181cm) or 1010 Alu (183cm or 176cm) for softer snow , spring skiing and easier eastern glades (Cyber Monday deals).
Does it make sense - especially that I still have Atomic Heli Daddy 170 (seems to short) and Heli Daddy 180 (seems too heavy, just a bit too much ski)?
1010 Alu in 176 could be great in tight spots but I think it could feel too short.
999 Alu in 181 – just slightly longer, slightly wider and softer than Apex or should I rather go with 1010 Alu in 183 (2cm wider)?
By the way I’m 5’9” 165-170lbs and upper intermediate skier (trying to improve).
