We have been receiving more and more questions about Sego skis and requests to review them, so today, you’re going to get the backstory of Sego Skis.
Sego was founded by two brothers, Tim and Peter Wells, and Sego is headquartered in the small mountain town of Victor, Idaho. So we talked to Tim and Peter about starting a ski company (actually, how they started two ski companies) and why they decided to set up shop in Victor to build skis.
Then we go over some particular Sego skis, the snowblades they’re producing, and why they have a ski called the Condor that has nothing on it other than … an avocado. You can check out now our First Look at the Condor, and, if you become a Blister member, you can also read our Flash Review of the Condor and get our initial on-snow impressions of the ski.
