Summary:
If your an intermediate skier that likes he whole mountain, get it, good edge hold and powder is great, but too soft and sluggish for experts and racers like me, Elan pretty much gave me these so i dont care.

Summary:
I screwed up. I borrowed a friend's pair of Rossignol Vipers a few times, then went and bought the Elans. I chose them because I was on a very tight budget. Well, to make a long story short, they're not Vipers. They did ok, but they just don't carve as well as I expected. I also fought them in the bumps. I'll give them to my intermediate skiing friend. I just bought a pair of 99 Vipers for $149!!!!!

Reviewed by: Eric ,  Advanced , from Cincinnati

Summary:
This ski handles well on packed powder runs. A great ski to use all over the mountain. I purchased the ski while at the Intermediate stage. It has quickly helped me to excel to an Advanced Stage. Good for the skier ready to take on more of the mountain.

It's 4:20

Reviewed by: Trent ,  Intermediate , from Iowa City, IA

Summary:
I picked up these skis last winter and skied them over christmas and spring break in Colorado. I really enjoyed them skiing all day in various terrain. They turn smoothly and easily and improved my confidence greatly. As I ski out west only once or twice a year I appreciated the ease with which they allowed me to take on the black diamonds without feeling as though I hadn't skied in a year. I honestly feel that they have helped me improve my skiing ability...along with some instruction of course.
