Elan Apex (2011)

Here’s a smooth, even-keeled ride that would serve all-mountain skiers well anywhere in the country. Easterners and Western resort skiers will dig its tip-to-tail edge contact—a function of two metal layers that lend a damping effect. The Apex rails big, stable groomer turns but disengages easily and skids if asked. It reminded several testers of the Völkl Mantra—a great compliment. Turn initiation is crisp and immediate, and the ski handles crud, trees, and bumps as well as it carves. Notched tips accommodate climbing skins
