"How it's Made" to feature skis

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 

I received this in an E-mail from Dynastar and figured some of you might be interested

 

For the first time ever a ski company will show the world how its skis are made on the highly-acclaimed How it’s Made television show. The crew of How It’s Made was at Dynastar in Sallanches, in the Chamonix Valley, France in September 2008 to produce this interesting step-by-step view of how alpine skis are produced. The show will highlight the different parts used in a ski, including bases, edges, metal laminates, top-sheet, molding processes, cosmetics and finishing processes -- everything that goes into making skis ready for the slopes.

 

How It’s Made is an award-winning show that highlights how ordinary, everyday items are made. Have you ever wondered how the products you use are made? How It's Made leads you through the process of how everyday products, such as apple juice, toothpicks, engines, contact lenses, and many more objects are manufactured.

 

Now that list includes Dynastar skis. And soon it will include Lange boots, too!

 

The How It’s Made “Dynastar skis” show will air on Friday June 19th 2009 at 9:00 pm ET on the Science Channel. If you miss the show consult the How It's Made website for addition air dates and  times.

Durnit, don't have the Science Channel! Any of you with your fancy DVRs have the means to capture it to a computer as an .avi or some such file?

According to the search on my satellite, How it's made is on Discovery at 7 PM EST tonight as well.  

Do they air the same program on both Science and Discovery, or does one of them run reruns?

Check the info on those in the descriptions.  The ones showing on Discovery Channel this weekend have different topics than the ones playing on Science.  I think the ski one is at 9pm eastern -8PM central- on Science on Dish Network.

The Science Channel and Discovery are related networks but do not air the same shows on the same day. I checked the Comcast listings and the Discovery episodes are different topics, not skis. Tonight's show featuring skis will probably air on the Discovery channel some time in the future.

I'm in. Yeah, I know it's a friday night, but I'm spearfishing in the AM, so I'm in a energy conservation mode.

Who knows, maybe we get to see some Pro Legends getting stamped out.

From the first post (Dynastar e-mail) this seemed really hyped up...

 

Plenty of companies have videos out there about how they are making skis. Most are not TV quality with a sexy (I guess?) narration, but most go into fairly high detail about what is going on.

 

I usually get the sense from how it's made that "Hey that's cool, but what about all the stuff in between?"

 

Missed it, as i only have Discovery here. maybe I'll catch it on youtube or something...

Weak, not really skier based info, more for the clueless public IMO.

post #17 of 17

Like snokat said "more for the clueless public" but I was surprised to see that they mold three at a time. I figured it would be an even number, two or four.
