Elan Playmaker 101 Skis
The all-new Elan Playmaker 101 Skis launch onto the ski scene for 2023-2024. It's designed for skiers who want to turn the mountain into a playground and incorporate freestyle into every line they ski. Elan created the Playmaker 101 as a combination of tried and true construction of the Ripstick and the lighter Ripstick Tour. It's built with an energetic Tubelite wood core with two carbon rods for stability, similar to the Ripstick, and adding the lightweight 360 sidewall construction from the Tour series. The sidewall has a trapezoid bevel to decrease swing weight while retaining overall strength. The Playmaker is lighter than many other skis in this category. The Elan Playmaker is playful and energetic. The Playmaker has a Surf Rocker shape and a kicked-up tail. It has a good float in softer snow, can pivot on a dime, and carves a shockingly good turn. Elan has designed the Playmaker as a freestyle ski with legit all-mountain abilities. It's built to launch off-park jumps, get face shots in some pow, and to eat bumps.

Shop Review for Playmaker 101 Skis
Very fun light and playful ski. My initial impression was that it would be too soft. Fun playful tip and tail but firm under foot but held a nice edge while carving in todays soft conditions. Very fun. Skis short so don't be afraid to go bigger then norm
