10 Reasons Why
Let Valaiski Masters-builders craft your bespoke ski this season
01 Create Your Own Mission Statement
Think of the first step in creating your own bespoke skis as something akin to writing your own wedding vows, honoring all the great times you’ve already had, but with a focus on the future, and all the better times to come with your new partners in descent.
List all of the best features of skis you’ve loved in the past, and how you would have improved them, especially in regards to where you’ll ski them in the better days ahead.
02 The Best Geometry
Here at Valaiski, we have combined wood know how with 25 year of experience building and testing skis over and over in the demanding mountains of the Valais in Switzerland.
Once we together with you decide on the dimensions and length of ski you prefer, we dial in the precise flex for your height, weight, and ski ability.
Even the top award-winning skis in the latest ski test results can’t create a custom experience like that.
03 Custom Skis are the logic consequence of boot fitting
Just a few years back only racers, patrollers, and instructors had custom fit ski boots. Now everyone knows that a better fit provides better control, comfort, and performance.
People who have custom fit boots never buy off the shelf again. Custom skis double down on that personalized experience.
04 Expanding Your Sweet Spot
With a ski specifically designed for you, you will ski within a significantly larger sweet spot.
The result? Better balance, increased control and comfort. You can expect to have a much easier control during your turns and carve with much more authority.
05 More Versatility
That mix of customized design and a bigger sweet spot also equals a ski that works better in a variety of terrain and snow conditions.
06 More Confidence
Something magical happens when you don’t have to think about your skiing and are just in the moment doing it.
You can just enjoy the terrain, the mountain air, and the wonderful moments that make skiing such a unique, amazing nature experience.
We call that, ‘The Flow State.’ allowing you to discover a whole new world of winter.
07 Get Your Mojo Back
Valaiski gets a lot of referrals. Plenty of them are from former lead dogs whose buddies are the Master Builders of Valaiski, and are now skiing better than ever.
They asked us to help get them back in front of the pack…so can you.
08 Skiers Who Can Get Pro Deals Work With Us
We’re privileged to build skis for working skiers who can get discounts on their equipment.
Whether it’s lifties from Verbier or patrollers right close here in Zermatt, building custom dream skis for people who will be on them every day of the winter is part of our mission and seeing satisfied smiles is true reward for us.
09 We Bring the Ski Shop to Your Front Door
At the same time, we also build skis for people in places like Hong Kong, New York and London who don’t have a ski shop where they live, but still want to enjoy to the max the two or three trips they take each season. We feel like we’re shipping them that extra little bit of our Swiss mountain magic.
10 Each Ski is a Partnership
The absolute best part about what we do is that no ski we build is ever the same.
At Valaiski, we get to use our knowledge, top materials, an in depth understanding of wood and deep passion for the winter mountains, to build you a ski that answers your every desire, and that you just can’t get anywhere else.
