Built To Carve
Skis built to Carve handcrafted in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. The principle of the carving ski is fairly simple. The ski has curved edges so that it is narrower underfoot than at the tip and tail. This means that when it is tipped onto its edge it will bend under the weight of the skier. The further it is tipped, the more it will bend. The skis follow the curve of the edge meeting the snow and turn in a smooth arc. This arc is controlled by the shape of the ski, the amount it is tipped over and the amount of pressure on it.

Northland Skis – Since 1911. Back then our original motto was “Speed is Life”. Over 100 years later nothing has changed. While we are proud of our heritage we relish where we are headed. Today’s Northland skis evoke our traditional artisanal craftsmanship with an elegant wood top sheet. Don’t let the genteel appearance fool you. Our tri-wood core paired with a cambered, hourglass shape is built for speed – engaging perfect turns in all terrain and snow conditions.
