While we wait for Mother Nature and Ullr to get their stuff together and bring the snow to N VT we keep cranking out skis. This pair is 182 cm 132/95/123. Weight before grind is 4lbs 7 oz each. Rocker tip, camber and tail flare, medium plus flex. These should be equally at home on groomers, trees, bumps and moderate powder. #waitingforsnow #customskis #handmadeskis #whiteroomskis #skiing #skis don’t forget that you can win a pair of WhiteRooms, get your tickets at my website!!

Well it’s stick season here in N. Vt, so today I honor that by pressing a sweet set of sticks for one of my very first customers. He told me today his original set is still in the rotation after 9 years!! This specific set is a model I’ve made maybe 6-8 copies of. 180 cm 136/102/123. I made a couple tweaks to it since it will be a resort ski only. I skipped the paulownia and added more ash and poplar. I also added a carbon fiber binding mat. The result is a smooth medium plus flex and a weight of EXACTLY 4 lbs 9 oz per ski ….2090 grams each on the nose!! I’ll go with a 9.8/10 on this set.

Finial steps in core prep. Sidewall recess and abrasion. The recess accounts for the thickness of the edge teeth for a flatter base right out of the press and the abrasion increases the surface area of the surface so the epoxy has more to stick to. Both are vital steps for a quality product. #whiteroomskis #customskis #handmadeskis #sidewalls #skis
Another Thursday….another pair of custom skis!! This one is a 185cm ski with dimensions of 136/100/102 which makes the radius just a shade over 17 meters. The weight is impressive at 4lbs 8 1/4 and 4lbs 8 3/8 each. A mere 4grams difference in weight after the base grind. The flex is a smooth and even, medium plus. All in all this ski gets a 9.9/10 for me. I’m really pleased with almost every detail about this set. #customskis #whiteroomskis #madeinvermont #vermontermade #tigermaple #autumleaves #chairlift remember to get your raffle tickets for a chance to win a pair of WhiteRooms.

Base structure. I love using my own equipment to flatten and structure my finished product. It’s so satisfying to see everything come together and look so nice as a finished ski! #whiteroomskis #basegrind #basestructure #flat be sure to get your raffle tickets for a chance at a pair of WhiteRooms.
