many companies of tech oriented products would launch their introduction with some info on the expertise and background and qualifications of the principals of the company, engineers, designers, financial directors and so on. hearing about the materials in the ski is not useful information until you know who is using them, IMO. not criticizing, just asking for the inside information that would produce confidence in the company.
I've been designing the topsheets for the skis and marketing materials from the beginning -- I will have the owner prepare some more info.
If you look under "Manufacturers Comment's" Under ExoticSkis.com there is additional information.
You can send any direct questions to me: Dave@verticalskis.com

The Phantom is a tele ski in development -- I'll get you some specs.
Since you live in Denver you could demo the other skis if interested. There is usually something going on at Copper, Breck, or Winter Park.
Actually Dave Patterson from your home state of Michigan has a shop in Beaver Creek and Golden, CO selling Vertical Skis. I need to get those and others listed on our web site.
With all of the early snow in the Rockies this season I think most of these big boards are already gone, but a new batch is underway...

I'd love to know when they are having an on snow demo booth at Breck. I'd love to try them out. Diesel and Powder Hound seem right up my alley!
PS, more skis flow into the museum on a regular basis. Come on over, have a beer and a look at the latest in retro.
Actually there are pretty regular demos going on between Copper, Winter Park and Breck.
This trip is a pretty quick trip for me. Air fare at the last minute was pretty expensive so I will have the fun of taking AMTRAK and sleeping on the train.
I will have to see when Mike will be in Breck doing demos again.
You'll have to park your vehicles on the drive so you can turn the garage into a museum like ROSSI SMASH!
Below is our booth at the SIA show and our sponsored mogul skier Zane Larson.
