The Lowdown

The 2024 Elan Playmaker 91 Skis is considered the Rookie of the Year. Reviewed to be an extremely playful and a carver, the Playmaker 91 is becoming a crowd favorite. Described to be the "Swiss army knife of freeride twins" by Elan, tear up the mountain in the most fun way possible with easy turn initiation to maneuver through the narrowest terrain, or surf through freshest powder. Already becoming one of the industry's favorite new freestyle ski for the 2024 season, this ski is one to look out for.

The Review - 4/5

I had a lot of fun on this lively ski. It rolls on edge very easy, and is a great for all mountain. I found it to be very easy to ski, and would absolutely ride the Playmaker 91 again. Compared to the Playmaker 101, which I already have been skiing, the Playmaker 91 is slightly more responsive on groomed trails. Overall, I really enjoyed skiing the Playmaker 91.

Who Is It For?

The Playmaker 91 is for the intermediate to advanced skier with a playful side that is looking for skis to explore the whole mountain on. With excellent versatility in any terrain, this is a one-ski quiver. No matter the conditions, this ski will put a smile on your face. Cruise groomers, slash through trees, and surf in snow - any skier can enjoy the Elan Playmaker 91.
