What Meier says about the BNK

“The BNK (formerly Big Nose Kate) has an updated profile with more sidecut and more versatility. It’s an all-terrain, all-mountain, handcrafted downhill ski. With its minimized traditional camber & early rise tip, tight turns are effortless from stash to stash. Like its namesake, this ornery cuss of a ski takes nothing, ripping through any terrain with dexterity and grace.


With a nod to local history, the Meier ladies ski honors Mary Katherine Horony Cummings, (aka Big Nosed Kate) was the girlfriend and intellectual equal to Doc Holiday.”
