Winter Production

by 1 March 07, 2014

As you probably know, it's been an exceptionally cold winter here in Northern Michigan. The temps have regularly been below zero and the snowpack is the best we've seen in quite a while! The ski factory has been busy constantly and we're seeing more smiling faces come back to tell us they've had a blast on the skis than ever. Some news:
  • In late December we built the absolute widest skis we've ever seen with a 190 mm tip for a ski patroller down at Mount Holly (see pictures below).
  • We attended the Craft @ SIA display at the SIA Snowshow in Denver this year and showcased our new 14/15 models.
  • At the beginning of February we sold out of just about every model and started building to order on all new orders coming in. Just a reminder, this process takes about 2 weeks and we will have you on your skis as soon as humanly possible! But don't be a stranger if you're looking for something immediately, we may just have something in our showroom we can let go.
  • Shaggy's hats are now available for sale online.
  • We have started offering custom die-cut letters in your ski bases, prices start at $100 for up to 8 letters (check out some of the pictures).
  • Mount Bohemia in Michigan's Keweenaw Peninsula has been getting dumped on, now is the time to go get the goods!
But there is the old saying that a picture is worth a 1,000 words, so I'll let the picture tell the rest of the story!

Sizing Chart

Sizing skis is a little bit of an art and a little bit of a science. There are numerous factors that all effect the optimal ski length for you.
