Today’s podcast represents a pretty historic occasion – we’re not sure this has ever happened before, but at the SIA trade show last week in Denver, we brought together founders and designers from a number of different ski companies, locked them in a room, and got them to discuss their approaches to ski design; talked about the harsh realities of manufacturing; and asked each of them to predict what we’ll be seeing in the next 5 to 10 years.
We’re joined by DPS Skis founder, Stephan Drake.
The top two guys at Moment Skis, Casey Haakanson and Luke Jacobson
From Armada Skis, designer Andy Hytjan
From Blizzard Skis, Jed Duke
And from K2 and Line Skis, Jed Yeiser
This round table conversation pulls back the curtain on how the skis you love actually come to exist, and provides some insight into what your next pair of skis might look like.
