A few weeks ago the CH team sadly took our last run down the slopes for the winter at the secluded mountain of Sugarbush Vermont. The fact that it was our last trip was only brightened by the experience of trying the new, all wood core, handmade Heidiskis from Austria. (Pictured above: Joel, Ami and myself on the lift.)

Originally only available made to order, Heidiskis recently introduced an exclusive "tip to tail" handmade trio of wood core skis for retail—the All Mountain, Freeride and Powder. To best serve the snowy conditions Heidiskis created the skis using only Swiss White Ash wood, giving them a great combination of longevity, flex and strength.

Through crud, ice and wet snow the skis felt quiet and stable, providing a smooth, fast ride. We couldn't help but feel great with the skis attached to our boots, while Heidiskis offers custom graphics, the provided designs are classy and fresh.

All three styles are the same price and are available in limited quantities from the Heidiskis website for 1,200€.
