Product Info

4FRNT set out to build a "backcountry park ski" for Wiley Miller with this one, and came up with a stable, hard-carving, crud-slaying machine that also happens to ride switch well and isn't averse to doing a park lap here and there. If you're looking to bring that park attitude to to top of the mountain on a pow day, the symmetrical design and low swing weight of the YLE will help you get it done. Stop worrying about your noodle-like skinny park skis holding up to the pressures of charging elsewhere on the mountain; the 4FRNT YLE Skis will rock it all.

Comments about 4FRNT YLE Skis 2013:

This was my favorite 4FRNT ski. It was big and rockered but had enough camber to play on the groomers. I had a lot of fun buttering around, but also opening up into some big arching turns.

Comments about 4FRNT YLE Skis 2013:

Conditions were pretty variable but the YLE skied them all with an even keel. Super turny in soft snow and stable in the chunder, it was hard to find any drawbacks for the ski.In spite of its fatness the YLE laid over nicely on groomers and well and easily. Only shortcoming I found was it jumped off edge on super icy steeps but it's hard to find a ski that doesn't. Overall this ski is rad and I would saddle up on it any day.

Comments about 4FRNT YLE Skis 2013:

I had the privilege of taking this ski for a test drive on a few runs and after a full day of riding about 7 or 8 skis of a similar class, I was very impressed - the YLE stood out. This may have had the best balance between stability (felt very stable pointing straight down) and versatility (very responsive in the trees / quick turning).

Comments about 4FRNT YLE Skis 2013:

Wow. Really fun ski. Pretty stiff but not in an inhibiting way. Given the amount of rocker, the ski still turns very easily. I was initially skeptical about the ratio of camber to rocker in the ski, thinking that it may not have enough tip rocker to give sufficient float, but I was wrong! This thing performs.

Big Smoothy

Comments about 4FRNT YLE Skis 2013:

Smooth and buttery with a lot of tail to make things stable. You can ski this ski anywhere from centered to way in the back seat & it won't let you down but tips wander a little if you don't weight both the skis evenly.
