A question about Quad One powder skis...?
Anyone know the Quad One's from Elan? Those powder skis look fantastic and other Elan powder skis have been good, but now I need something better... Anyone know if the Quad One's are any good?
161-121-141? at 184 Length? That is a BEAST. That is one of the bigger shovels on the commercial market. The underfoot size is pretty huge too. Basically, these suckers are going for POW and POW only. I can't imagine they'd be too much fun on much anything else. ELAN is a reputable company, so I am sure the skis perform. But if you want a straight powder ski, why not go for the best? The Fatypus Alotta was marked as the best in the ski reviews, or at least one of the best. It's pricey ($800) and huge (172-140-158 with lengths at 170 and 180), but they say it SHREDS the big powder. If you are going too fat, check into a sick all mountain alternative. The Volkl Gotama (133-105-124) got SICK reviews and is a little smaller underfoot, so it has a little more versatility.
But in the end, if you have the funds for a fully stocked quiver, get some crazy POW skis as well as the all mountains. Have fun.
