A new ski from Elan for 2024, the Elan Playmaker 101 is for those with a very playful style who love to boost off-side hits, hop in the park, and hit rails but still want the versatility for off-piste runs and powder days.

  • Playful (hence the name) ride feel, yet some stiffness underfoot for edge hold
  • Versatile 101 width - not too wide to get on edge and carve, but wide enough to float in soft stuff
Not ideal for
  • Some tip chatter at high speeds (40 to 50+ mph) on the hardpack, but this is not what the ski is made for

I found the Elan Playmaker to be a fun and playful ski. At first, the lightweight was different than the hard-charging skis I am used to, and the tips felt a bit squirly.

Spencer is the expert you need!
5 /5
Spencer was down to earth, knowledgeable and responsive. He made a video for me with his recommended selections and it was SO helpful. I throw him a curve ball and also needed help to find my daughter gear! Spencer is from the East coast like us so he is fully aware of the icy conditions and offered options within my price point that would allow me to feel confident in all conditions. I would highly recommend anyone use this service and if they are lucky enough to be paired with Spencer they are in good hands. Thanks Spencer!!

Spencer went above and beyond to help make me comfortable with my first snowboard purchase. I worried about getting something wide enough for my big feet and versatile enough to help me progress as a newer rider. He curated the perfect list for me and even made a 17 minute video addressing me personally and answering all my questions. He is personable, knowledgeable and quick to respond. Honestly couldn’t have asked for a better experience. I appreciate you Spencer.
