Any shape is possible, here are some we like.

Bertha

Bertha

A big ski for big days, the Bertha has full reverse camber, extended taper at the tips and tails, and a medium flex. This creates big surfy float for those who take fun very seriously.

Wilson

This ski is designed to tour well and float better. The Fir blended core reduces weight and full reverse camber smoothes the skin up and provides float on the way down, making another lap hard to pass up.

The Igneous Method

Design

The first step toward alpine bliss is a detailed interview with you to find the perfect shape, camber profile and flex pattern for your skiing or riding style. Next, select your topsheet and optional custom art. From there, we develop the complete design, ensure you approve, then proceed to handcraft your skis or snowboard from the finest materials available.

Materials & Construction

Hard Maple/White Ash blended cores optimize the responsive high-energy ride of Hard Maple with the impact and vibration absorbtion of White Ash. We also blend Fir for lightweight backcountry applications. Quartersawn Hard Maple sidewalls flank the core, providing superior impact resistance compared to ABS and higher structural integrity than P-tex.

Sintered bases are better than extruded bases and sintered graphite bases are even faster and hold more wax. Typically found only on racing skis but found on all Igneous skis and snowboards, sintered graphite bases are always all black. We stone grind ours then apply a medium-coarse cross structure, base conditioner, and warm wax with cold wax overlay. Precision tuned, hand-filed and polished oversized hardened steel edges are fast, accurate and provide both durability and tuning longevity.

Two layers of premium composite stitched triaxial fiberglass further enforce torsional rigidity. The fiberglass weight affects the stiffness of your flex: Light - forgiving and floaty for powder, Medium - balanced all condition performance and Heavy - precision and stability at speed. Bulletproof Kevlar protects from rocks and strategically placed rubber foil dampens chatter on crud.

Our hardwood topsheets not only lend unique character to our skis and snowboards, they also provide additional rigidity. Wood is the original high-tensile crosslinked polymer matrix, and combined with our high-performance epoxy, the topsheet significantly stiffens flex.

About

Igneous has handmade custom skis and snowboards in Jackson, Wyoming since 1995. We set out to make the perfect big mountain freeride powder ski that could also withstand an entire season of hard-charging in Jackson Hole, a place notorious for devouring skis and boards. That mission remains today. (~);}
