Hey, my advice is to get ahold of a rep now and find out if you are able to get proform prices. Being that you are a member of a race program i dont see why not. Find out who the Elan rep for your area or region is and contact them now to find out if you can get skis from them. The proform price on Elan SLX's is $300 (no bindings no plates, and that is for a race stock ski). For this next season ill be on a 154 SLX, i just put my order in for a few pairs yesterday. If you are in the northeast area i may be able to give you the name and # of one fo the Elan reps that i know. If you are interested let me know.
