From the beautiful bamboo veneers to our "orange hot" bases, these award-winning, big mountain / backcountry skis are designed for the dedicated skier who like to explore the mountains to their fullest. Building from the responsive feel of a sustainable bamboo core, these skis are reinforced with fiberglass and carbon strips bonded with 100% pine based bio epoxy topped with real bamboo veneer, providing additional damping while looking great, and finished with marine grade sealant coating.
Our custom top sheets allow skiers to express their unique personality through one of kind art work, laser engraved directly into the bamboo veneer, after the ski is pressed and ready to go.
Starting with a line art drawing, we convert the work to a digital format, with a combination of vector and raster formats, depending on the resulting style desired. This art is exported to the final engraving format, retaining all the elements of the original design, and burned directly into the ski, and then sealed with a marine coating ready for anything.
Here is an example of the end to end process from the award winning Art of Winter skis, designed by a local artist and skier. Start with the line art illustration, always burn a test (which doubles as wall art), make any refinements and burn the final art on the ski, a Kylie 186 for this pair. The skis were on display as part of the Art of Winter exihibt during the Colorado Ski and Snowboard expo in downtown Denver. When the show was over, they were finally mounted, tuned and enjoyed somewhere special in the Colorado backcountry.
