Glen is understandly happy at the prospect: "I cannot wait to join this young and open team of developers and engineers.  It is really exciting for me to be able to work at a ski factory again and to follow the skis from the first designs to the finished product."

The move came shortly after Elan partnered with Dalbello in the US and Canada, the Itialian ski boot maker Plake already has links with.
