Elan Lhotse Skis

The Elan Lhotse is designed to scale up to the highest peaks and ski down in some scratchy snow. This ultra light alpine touring ski is designed with Elan's Mountain Rocker that has a rockered tip for floatation and quick turn initiation, camber underfoot for edge hold on a steep couloir, and rocker in the tail for surfing fresh powder. The PST Sidewall Construction has a cap in the tip and tail for a lightweight feel, and vertical sidewalls underfoot for edge hold. Elan's Wood/Fiberglass Core increases the weight reduction, but still will give you stability on the run out towards base camp. When you want a lightweight ski for earning your turns, step up to the summit with the Elan Lhotse. [+]
