Anyone that truly loves winter, snow, and skiing, dreams of being able to make their own set of skis, a pair customized and adapted to exactly their unique wishes and needs. They dream of that magic moment when their boots click into the bindings, and these skis take off towards the valley below.

We are a few of those lucky ones that know this privilege well. We have been making skis for over seventy years, and know that making a great ski is anything but easy. It took lots of learning, studying, calculations and testing of the various types of wood and other materials that skis are made of. Over the years we have become better and better at making skis, not just for ourselves, but for everybody else too, friends, casual skiers, racers, cruisers, adrenaline addicts, explorers, adventurers, and more...

Our limitless dedication to our work has often resulted in truly revolutionary ski designs, ski technology that simply did not exist before, creating skis that profoundly rede ned skiing. We are very proud of all these innovations that have since become generally accepted standards in the industry. The spirit of innovation is our main guiding principle. Even now, after seventy years, we continue to spend every day, be it in summer or winter, rain or sunshine, thinking of how to make skis better for their users.

Making skis is a distinct pleasure. It takes a cross between a carpenter, craftsman, sculptor, engineer, technologist, chemist, designer and painter to come up with a good product. It is an amalgam of tradition and advanced technology. The woodcores, the heart and soul of our skis, are enriched with modern materials that bring out the characteristics a ski needs to stand up to the most demanding snow conditions.

Skis are tools made for snow, bitter cold, and winter. They do not shy away from ice either. But if you have a love for skis, they are also pieces of art, just as home on a gallery wall as they are on the icy steeps.

Medals, titles and awards

I was never one to reminisce much about my memories and past successes. Actually, I don’t think about them at all and have already forgotten many. I feel that living in the past has no meaning. Resting on old laurels is nothing more than resting. Today it’s 2018 and all these things took place in the seventies and eighties of the past century. It was all so long ago that both a century and a millennium have turned since then.

Mountains with friends

Ski mountaineering is a lonely undertaking. Perhaps that is why I enjoy spending time on snow with my wife, kids and friends that much more. At the end of March, we took a trip to mount Peca. It was a magical day.
