Custom skis & Clients
This is a deep powder trekking ski. Designed for a fast approach and big open mountain gliding on the way down. On piste it will handle high speeds and deliver long drawn out turns.
Robert wanted a strong minimalist look. He picked a light color wood veneer, the rising sun motif, took the Community logo to straight black.
Robert holds a land speed record so you can tell he likes to go fast. The skis have a slight tip early taper and rocker for strong all-mountain performance but there after are built to hold edge at high speeds.
Maree's sister is a fine artist. She drew this phoenix which is also Maree's daughters middle name. Set on a light wood veneer.
Maree is from Australia. Down-under is a heavy maritime pack so the skis are built as a mid-fat, all-mountain performer. The nose section is modified for added lift in powder and maneuverability.
Ian, chef and owner at Skadi restaurant, incorporated Bergslien's painting, the iconic Viking silhouette and his logo to create a Scandinavian graphics package.
Skis are a mid-fat. They are good for both trekking and buoyancy in the backcountry. Just a slight section of tip rocker and a 25m turn radius for longer, drawn out turns. The skis are ultra-light carbon with moderate camber.
David is a writer and has always expressed a keen appreciation for the written word and the images that often time accompany them. So what better than to incorporate ads from the heyday of print slogans and pictures.
Gustav Klimt, a member of the Vienna Secession has long resonated with Gabi. She has seen his work in Austria and when she had the chance to design her skis it was the obvious choice. This is a complication of The Three Ages of Woman and The Kiss.
Sock monkeys and more sock monkeys.
Lauren is on the Mammoth Mt. race team and needed to build out a strong performance all-mountain ski leaning towards powder. In her class, this is a mid-fat with a slightly rockered tip.
Freddy is an astrophysicist that designs space ships. So, he was less concerned with graphics and more so with performance and light-weight. The look is jet black, carbon fibers.
Skis were designed with tip and tail early taper for turn-ability and a heavily reinforced underfoot section for hard carving. There is a moderate section of camber that blends into tip and tail rocker for all mountain performance. Freddy likened the whole process of shaping his skis to that of shaping a surfboard.
Keith's been skiing in tye-dye for a couple decades now. He's a Mammoth local, one of our top tele skiers. So when we suggested tye-dye it was a natural fit. The heart logo is a signature piece by Keith.
Keith had been skiing the Armada JJ's for a long time and wanted to design a ski with more length and with more underfoot torsional strength and hold. We aced out the tail early taper but kept a small section of tail rocker.
Yosemite, Hawaiian waves and the map of her favorite mountain. These are the images that Debbie, an attorney from LA whose been coming to Mammoth since she was a child wanted on her skis.
Debbie likes to make lots of short radius turns as we set the sidecut at 13 meters. She has a narrow underfoot for fast transactions and we added a slight section of tip rocker to give the skis some all-mountain performance.
