    Fantastic all mountain ski, and set up for day touring and side country. Ski the resorts this year, even if the lifts aren't running!!

    Bindings are Alpine boot compatible.

    Was the top of the range "Summit Series" ski from Elan. Elan calls the Olympic Mons a 70 percent/30 percent, off/on-piste freeride ski. To save weight it's super thin & there's no graphics topsheet, the graphic is printed right onto the top sheet of metal. It has what Elan calls Resort Rocker: early rise in the tip plus just a touch of it in the tail, with minimal camber underfoot.

    Olympus Mons skis in good condition (bases & edges perfect, some light topsheet marks - no significant scratches)
    Length: 184cm
    Underfoot: 110mm
    Profile: 140-110-130
    Radius: 23.9m

    Marker Baron BCT tour bindings - take a regular Alpine boot. DIN 4-12 (Decal/cover on one heel piece missing - cosmetic - no affect on functionality)

    Nylon skins in good condition in a bag. (Buried in my rucksacks somewhere - I'll add pitcure when I find them!)

    From skis.com review:
    "If you wanted to ski in space the Elan Olympus Mons ski is the one to take you there. This ski is named after the highest peak on Mars and the solid, easy arcs they make are perfect for any type of snow. The wide waist width and raised tip will give you gravity defying flotation . When the sun bakes the snow, do not fret as the titanium reinforcement on the Olympus Mons will break up the crud and will rail through icy patches. With early rise tip and traditional camber underfoot that floats, smoothes out variable conditions and carves. The sandwich construction layers dual titanium on both sides of the wood core to help you lay tracks from powder to ice. A channel wood core makes this a light ski but still stays snappy and playful just the way you like it. This ski is built with ABS sidewalls that give you direct power from your foot to the edge of the ski to give you better control at speed. The 110mm waist allows you to float like an astronaut in soft snow and you will stick landings better than ever. The Elan Olympus Mons has a thin aluminum profile that make them light but still keep you stable."
