New Ski Company: Lokomotiv

Craig Donovan and the Lokomotiv Skis crew from Scandinavia sent me a note saying they are finally bringing their skis to market after nearly 3 years of testing prototypes.

Officially open for business with quickly-renewable resource all-bamboo cores and updated designs (including rockered models) for 2009-2010. Big-mountain/backcountry skis handmade in small production runs with custom builds available. Vertically-laminated bamboo cores mated with various tri-axial fiberglass and veneers for customized flex patterns and stiffness. Each model appears to be available in one length only this season.
Their "Rockerbilly" pow ski kinda looks like a DPS shape cross-bred with some traditional shapes. Topsheet graphics are cool. I will see about getting my hands on a pair or two to see how they ski this season.

Priced from approximately €850 per pair.
