Ski Design: An east coast perspective.

Not long ago I had someone message me about my opinions about ski width as it pertains specifically to the east coast. He felt there a lot of misconceptions about this topic. I told him I’d write something up when I go the chance. So below you’ll find some of my ski building philosophy. All mountain In my opinion a good all mountain ski width for the east might range anywhere between 85 and 100 […]

Vermont Magazine – What Happens When a Skier’s Hobby Goes Haywire

In the spring of 2018 I was interviewed by Vermont Magazine for an article about WhiteRoom Custom Skis and the story of how I got into building custom skis.

His and Hers: WhiteRoom Skis Review

I received a review from a customer recently that I’d like to share. The pair in this post is the “his” model of this his/hers combo build. I have to say I am a big fan of these skis. I know they were built with powder in mind, however, being that they are a medium/stiffish flex, they perform really well in a variety of conditions. I really have been using them almost everyday last year […]

Product testing, Upslope Model

Upslope Model Product Testing I’ve recently been product testing a new pair of skis that I’m now ready to share with everyone. The Upslope model was designed as a light-ish BC charger. Aptly named for the upslope snow storms we get here in the Green Mountains of Vermont and for its intended purpose of earning vert. My personally philosophy on ski design includes the notion that super light skis get knocked around too much in […]
