CAIC : Custom Ski Graphic

Colorado Avalanche Information Center (CAIC)

The Prospector 96 & 106 

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 or 106mm to find a float for every skier.  


The CAIC is a program within the Colorado Department of Natural Resources, a state government agency. They have 20 staff that work out of 8 offices that cover the mountainous areas of Colorado. The CAIC is the public side of the partnership. The mission of the CAIC is to provide avalanche information, education and promote research for the protection of life, property and the enhancement of the state’s economy. These are the folks that produce the weather and backcountry avalanche forecasts. They teach avalanche classes to school kids, university students, and avalanche workers. The CAIC also works with CDOT to reduce the threat of avalanches to the State Transportation System.

We're excited for the opportunity to team up with the CAIC to bring you these limited edition skis. A portion of every ski sold will go towards supporting the great work done by the CAIC.
