2011 Elan Boomerang Ski


Pros: Soft tip & tail with rocker makes for easy turns and great flotation in the deep stuff.

Cons: Not the best for the runout, chatters in bumps and groomed runs.

I demoed these skis in Mammoth when they were new, took them out for a great powder weekend.
Being an old surfer dude biggrin.gif I loved the tiki graphics and the soft feel of these skis and headed out to find a secret powder stash.
Ran into some local friends who tipped me off to the location I skied alone up to the top of Dragon's Back. The traverse was hairy and the top not so inviting but way down below was untracked powder.
I picked the least fatal line and jumped into the fire. The Boomerangs sailed over the top lip with ease , and stuck the landing without throwing me into the back seat.
They immediately floated to the top and I hooted and hollered all the way down to the bottom, stopping to take a picture and texted it to my ski buddy to make him jealous.

They were a blast that day, only stumbling when I got down on the groomers or tried to ski the bumps under the trees. This is a ski I regret not buying to keep just for those deep powder days when smearing around on the top of Mammoth is pure Heaven.
2011 Elan Boomerang Ski

The twin-tip Boomerang model is the undisputed boss of backcountry freestyle skiing. If you’ve got a taste for gigantic cheese wedge kickers and want to ski away from your deep powder landing with effortless ease, then check them out. While the Boomerang’s sick asymmetric graphics go big on fun, the technology behind them is deadly serious. Rocker technology in the tip and tail makes the skis feel shorter and improves manouverability. SST Sidewalls and a laminated woodcore take care of handling, while fibreglass reinforcement means they’ll stand up to anything. Throw them onto an edge and watch them come flying back!
