American Alpine Club : Custom Graphic Ski

 

The Prospector -

American Alpine Club Edition

Want to go out in the backcountry some days, and still use a chairlift on others without having to buy a whole different set of gear? This ski will do it all with ease -

Winning athlete hearts and the Editors Choice award from Backcountry Magazine! It's built for the backcountry and touring to be light on the uphill and stable on the down, whether it's turns you earn or lift-served. 

It's made with our signature Colorado aspen and beetle-kill pine wood core and a light-weight fiberglass for superior on-snow feel. We also use the most durable base material available for inevitable backcountry rock encounters. We offer the Prospector in this limited edition at 96mm underfoot for maximum efficiency while traveling in the backcountry.  

The American Alpine Club

Through its members, the AAC advocates for American climbers domestically and around the world; provides grants and volunteer opportunities to protect and conserve climbing areas; hosts local and national climbing festivals and events; cares for the nation’s leading climbing library and mountaineering museum; manages a lodging network for climbers; and annually gives about $100,000 toward climbing, conservation, education and research grants that fund adventurers who travel the world.

We're excited for the opportunity to team up with the ACC to bring you these limited edition skis, featuring a topsheet artwork by Rhiannon Klee, www.rhiannonklee.com. A portion of every ski sold will go towards supporting the great work done by the ACC.

All of our skis are handmade in Denver, CO at the Meier Craft Skiery and are backed by a 2-Year warranty. You can get this ski on our backcountry fave, The Prospector, which is offered in two widths underfoot.
