FULL REVIEW

Atomic’s Elysian got both great and intermediate reviews in our test. One tester proclaimed this ski “My Favorite,” saying it’s perfect for everyday skiers and weekend warriors, with another saying, “It’s not for high speeds or hardpack.” The overall consensus is that lighter and less aggressive skiers will love the Elysian, reveling in its lively, easy to initiate feel in powder, bumps and crud. At $600 it offers great value, and will reward anyone looking to explore more off-piste conditions.

Skiers who like to make big turns and hit higher speeds have plenty of other top picks to choose from in this test.
