Hi, I'm Steve and I just got off the Elan Amphibio 82 XTi. I give this ski 4.5 out of 5 stars. I absolutely loved it. I would recommend this ski for the person who's typically been in the 75 range in width of skis and wants to move into the 80 range of width skis. It's definitely for that hard pack, groomer skier, East coast, Midwest or groomed hard pack out West. It's extremely strong and stable. It makes quick, short turns, if you like short turns I'd recommend it. You do want to ski it at a little shorter length, so normally I ski about a 175, this is a 168 which is probably the length I would recommend to really take advantage of what the ski can do. If you like short turns, you're skiing on hard pack and you want to move into the 80 mm length ski, this would be an awesome choice for you.
