The Bliss has Elan’s BC Rocker—full tip rocker with slight tail rocker to help with riding switch or floating through powder. “It’s relatively floaty and easy to turn, but takes a lot of work on the groomers,” Rodman said of the 106 millimeter-waisted ski. According to Dumais, the Bliss has a damp tip. “It’s best in transition between different types of snow conditions but its talent is powder skiing,” she said. Construction includes vertical sidewalls and a laminated Trulite wood core with fiberglass reinforcement. Muecke, a Snowbird instructor, advised “it takes precision to get this ski to turn, so don’t ask for forgiveness.”
