333 skis

I realize by putting ‘skis’ in the subject line 99% of you just zoned out (if it makes you feel any better his background is in the snowboard industry). Seriously though, check out the 333skis website and their story. Here’s the quick rundown from Michael Lish:

The Factory is built from 90% recycled, found material, built on a single axle trailer.
You design the graphics for your set of 333 skis.
You can provide the Prime numbers and Flex Camber/Rocker for your skis.
333 skis are built using 12 oz of fuel and direct solar. Small carbon footprint.
333 skis are $333.00 Working persons wage.
Test skis are $222.00 Poor persons wage.
It takes less than 3 hours (labor) to build a set of skis.
If the set of 333 skis I build does not stoke you, I refund your cash.
2 season warranty.
Our core stock is milled from Finland Birch.
Sintered 2000 base stock and tri axial fiberglass.

So let’s see – a custom designed ski with a two season warranty and a stoke guarantee/refund for just over three bills? If I was a skier I’d pick up the phone today and order a pair. Or two. And next time I’m in Mammoth I’ll drop a case of beer off as these guys deserve it.  I pinged him about splitboards, but he currently has no plans to make ’em, but said to keep checking back.  If you call him to order some skis or shoot the breeze let him know you read about him from my site so he’ll consider making a splitty soon!

This is my statement on what I believe you can expect from me. The standard I adhere to; build a solid, lasting set of skis that engages your soul.

    ahhhhhh snappe! I was talmbout checking out Melakwa or Snow Lake this coming weekend…

    I’m pretty sure up out over the Chair Peak ridge and down to Snow Lake is as major a splitboard zone as it is for hiking (I’m two weeks out, max, by the way)…

    snow lake is pretty and all, but man there are a lot of people around there. i’d say go to gem lake at a minimum, better yet head to upper or lower wildcat. lots of wild berries right now, blueberries and huckleberries everywhere, so plan your desserts out.

    two weeks out huh wha? from buying a split or what?
