After 36 years of skiing, I was skeptical a small boutique custom ski shop in Colorado could create a ski that really was that much better.
When I conducted my ski design phone interview with company founder Pete Wagner, I told him I wanted boards that could handle everything from the deep BC powder to the steeps of Big Sky – something solid on fast groomers, yet tough enough to endure collisions with Montana rocks.
The end product had an early-rise design and stiff tail that was a custom match for me, with showstopper graphics. It blows any other ski I’ve ridden out of the water. The only problem with Wagner skis: I’m not sure what to do with the balance of my ski quiver gathering dust in the garage. Congrats, Pete Wagner. Bravo!
