While a lot of custom gear is simply for aesthetic purposes, custom skis offer a distinct advantage over off-the-shelf models. They give you the ability to fine-tune each aspect of the construction in order to buy a pair that will look and perform exactly how you want them to.
Folsom Custom Skis in Denver, Colorado, has been churning out custom skis for years and recently moved into a new space to accommodate increased demand. Builders do all the production in house from milling the cores to pressing the skis, printing the graphics to ironing on the final coat of wax. Materials are carefully selected and no detail is overlooked.
There are 12 different shapes and 50+ graphic designs that you can choose from on their website. If you fancy yourself an artist, you can also submit your own work to be incorporated into the topsheet. Work with the team to discuss your skiing preferences and select the right combination of materials that will behave they way you want them to. Check out folsomskis.com for more info.
