The Elan 999 Wood Ski caters to skiers who want a powder fatty that doesn’t sacrifice groomer-ripping performance. This ski delivers with heavy lumber, on piste and off. Rugged sidewall construction provides major torsional rigidity and a laminated wood core gives this ski a relatively stiff yet smooth, progressive flex for high speed carving on firm snow. The 99mm waist excels in the light and white the lifted tail offers increased maneuverability front to back while sketching into steep chutes and critical couloirs.
Bottom Line: Shred the steep and deep, and then rip the groomers on the Elan 999 Wood Ski.
