“This ski has a real smeary feel and can blend different types of turns,” Stoeger said of the Boomerang. The twin tip has a symmetrical shape (140-120-140 in the190 centimeter length), favored by new school powder skiers and freestylers. Elan’s Triple Base Technology means the base is flat in the middle and lifted on the sides for better slide on features or float in powder. The Boomerang’s highest scores were for float, but were low in the other categories. “It’s a really soft ski with good float but no hold on hard groomers,” Witman said.
