I skied the 176cm Elite Long Turn Hero. This is a new "beer league" race ski. Dimensions for the 176 are 115-66-96 with a turn radius of 19m. There is the tiniest bit of early rise at the tip, otherwise it's a pretty traditional race construction. It will also come in longer and shorter lengths for next year.
The brand new pair I used had just come off the bench at Teton Village Sports (thanks, guys!) and are headed for the ski retailers demo thing at Snowbasin next week. They were flat, perfectly tuned, and fast.
The first thing you notice when making turns on this ski is how much freakin fun a quick, powerful, and stable race ski is compared to mid-fats and fats and fat-fats. These things just felt glued to the snow and ready to carve. I skied them on immaculately-machined groomers and on moderate bumps with chopped-up junk. They slice through junky snow like a sword even though they ARE a bit on the stiff side to use in the bumps a lot.
I just think that any serious skier with more than a two-ski quiver ought to have a pair of skis like this. They are so good at teaching you what's going on in your turns and the rush of laying them over on a groomer and feeling those edges hold is addictive. I'm STILL jazzed and I'm now 500 miles from Jackson Hole.
Standard disclaimer that I am an on-hill rep for Rossi and you should take anything I say with a grain of salt.
