the original American Ski and Snowboard Brand,
founded in 1962 in Washington State.

Bend your mind around that.

We’ve been here from the beginning. Before ‘freeride’ was even a thing. Back when skiing was stale and the product was boring. We came into this realm blazing, chomping to reimagine what skiing means.

It’s hard to not look back, to not be nostalgic. It’s hard to ignore those pivotal moments in product design – the shaped skis, the early twin-tips, the rocker revolution – that were born in our workshop. We’ve been to the peak and back again too many times to count.

From deep pow to the chalky steeps, this beast is the big mountain charger you’ve been waiting for. Toss in a longer turn radius and even flex, and you’ll be wondering why it took you so long to hop on board.
