Legendary Skis

These are ski models from the past. Ski manufacturers are continually making new improvements to make your ski experience better, safer and more fun. Some times there is just a graphic change from year to year, yet the guts of the ski is the same, which makes it confusing for cusumers looking for a partular ski. And then there are more significant changes and at this point the brand will change the model name; such as the women's Cloud and Affinity series and the men's Smoke and Vantage series from Atomic Skis. Blizzard Skis, brought the Quattro, Brahma and Black Pearl models. Elan Skis has the women's Snow and the men's Ripstick and Wingman models.

K2 has had the women's Luv series and now the Anthem series. Men had to choose from the Apache, AMP, Konic and now the brand new Distruption series from K2 Skis. The women's Temptations and the men's Experience models from Rossignol Skis, and the women's Origin series and the men's X-Wing and X-Drive series from Salomon Skis.
