The lightest ski in the backcountry test, Elan’s new women’s-specific Ibex model is ideal for women who want nothing but the easiest uphills possible. Featuring the brand’s proprietary TubeLite wood core, this ski has two hollow carbon rods that run tip-to-tail providing liveliness while reducing weight. Testers found the Ibex 84W’s descending capabilities smeary and fun, but a little chattery at high speeds. In the skin track, their weight was hardly noticeable, making them a nice pick for long tours.
