Throughout the course of the year at Schweitzer Mountain Resort I started running across a new handmade ski from a company called 7B Skis in Sandpoint, ID. This past weekend I had the opportunity to ride Stella (Schweitzer's 6-pack lift in the Outback Bowl) with the founder of 7B Skis. I had a short, but fascinating, conversation about the company and how they design and manufacture skis.
This is the website for the company: http://www.7bskis.com/
I wanted to post this to see if anybody owns a pair of these skis or has had the opportunity to ride them. Although I don't need another ski in my quiver, I'm always fascinated by low-volume / custom manufacturers and how their products perform compared to high-volume manufacturers.
Any feedback would be appreciated.
