Description

Show Description

Every pair of Foon Skis is handcrafted in Mount Currie, BC and is milled from a single piece of Coast Mountain yellow cedar. This tight-grained wood is unique in the way it absorbs vibration to provide a dampened, stable ride. Unlike most wood core skis, Foon uses a kiln-dried, solid 2in. board rather than layers of glued strips. It allows the natural flex of the wood to transmit to the skier. Like a custom surfboard, Foon skis are hand-shaped and hand-built to optimize the sidecut, base profile and flex profile. The Gretski is tuned for mixed conditions, alpine tours and ski mountaineering in locations where you're 99% sure that you're on a line that's never been tried.

  • Yellow cedar core, made from a single board that's split in two to make a pair of identical cores. Yellow cedar grows only in the Pacific northwest, so if that's where you ride, ride with a slice of the mountain.
  • Sandwich construction layered with ultralight carbon.
  • Bevel on the topsheet makes it more durable and better at shrugging off hits from the side.
  • Active Rocker Technology creates a variable rocker that allows your skis to ride long and stable and short and nimble when the turns get tight, and to smooth the way through transitions. Smear, carve and smarve.
  • Updated 5-point sidecut gives the skis a powerful edge that stics to the steeps.
  • Early rise tip for variable snow conditions.
