Elan needs you to test new on-piste skis

Elan is looking for 100 progressive on-piste skiers to test the prototype of the next generation of on-piste skis! 

For decades, we have been innovating with one simple goal - to improve the skiing experience for everyone, from beginners to experts. 30 years after Elan invented the carving ski, the brand is on a mission again. The mission is to revolutionize the category of on-piste skis and bring back the momentum, power and the attractiveness.

Remember the feeling when you hit the slopes with your friends and make the first turns on the freshly groomed slope? Skis on the edge, carving the turns from top to bottom, the beautiful view of snowy mountains and the laughter with your friends. That's what we enjoy and what skiing is all about. 

Over 60 different technologies, constructions and geometry prototypes and countless days of testing skis in all kinds of conditions the mountain has to offer. Elan has now developed a new generation of piste skis. 

Numerous skiers have been involved (including ski racers, demo team representatives, ski instructors, recreational skiers... ), but the ski still needs the finishing touches. We hope to have your input before we launch the series in the 2023/24 season.



Start of application phase: September 23, 2022
End of application phase: October 16, 2022
Start of testing phase:  Beginning of December 
End of testing phase: End of January



As the skis are very high quality, elan can't give them away for free for the test. However, the price is very competitive: Regularly, the skis will be sold at 999€. For this test, elan is giving them away for 355€ (incl. Binding). The selected testers will be sent to a hidden page on the website of elan, where only they will be able to buy the skis.
