Waist Width: 70
The Snow is an all mountain women's carving ski with a skinny 70 mm waist, intended for beginner to intermediate women skiers. It's packed with technology, starting with Early Rise Rocker, which lifts the tip and tail slightly up and off the ground, designed to maneuver through powder and other various conditions. Furthermore, with the tip and tail rockered, less edge is making contact with the snow, designed for responsiveness and minimized turning effort. Monolite Core is thinner and less dense than other cores from Elan, decreasing overall weight and designed for easier turning. Full Power Cap construction is lightweight and designed to make turn initiation and execution easier. Fiberglass construction integrates, you guessed it, fiberglass throughout the ski, designed to produce a smooth flex pattern that's easy to bend while maintaining stability. For something similar in the All Mountain Women series, check out the Zest. The All Mountain Women series is made up of 12 models with a variety of purposes. Some are more carving-focused, some are more off-piste-focused, but they all share an overarching intention to ski well thanks to a plethora of technology Elan has developed over the years. Elan, based in Begunje na Gorenjskem, Slovenia, was founded in 1945. Its U.S. headquarters are in West Lebanon, N.H.
