    but really had to do some groomer turns for an AMGA ski course application. Fingers crossed to finally hit those black diamonds next wintah.
    I've never been more amped to arc some spring slush groomers.

    "A quarter of a century ago Elan first sent its revolutionary skis to market. They were forty centimeters shorter than normal skis, much wider and had a pronounced sidecut. But their defining characteristic was the fact that they turned on their own. Elan’s new skis changed the sport forever. The SCX ski that opened the door to a completely new way of skiing, the technique now known as carving. These skis are perhaps the most revolutionary invention in the history of skiing. We can safely say that everybody who enjoys carving arc after perfect arc into the snow is in a way skiing on Elan skis."

    Anyone else looking?

    Not my sale, in CDN dollars. Looks like a brand new pair of 176 for $450.

    Exactly. I looked at these skis really hard last year and am convinced they are going to be great for 80% of the days we've been having over the last few years.

    I know a rep, maybe I'll pull the trigger this year.

    Owning Line Blades this year has me excited for Whistler early season, when only a few non-steep, groomers are open. eg. these could make laps under Emerald Chair a blast.

    btw these may likely be called “Blast” not “Blade”.
