Ski Shapes Guide

The Igneous line represents 25 years of research and development in the Tetons and other mountains around the world. Each shape and matched camber profile are available in various lengths and widths to fine tune your skis to you. We will also make any full custom shape and camber you want.

Construction Profiles

Your ski construction will heavily influence ride characteristics at different speeds and in varying terrain and conditions, as well as determine carry/skinning weight. Once you have a construction profile in mind, we'll work with you to determine your final construction based on your DIN, size, age, and gender.

  Construction Profiles
Maple / Ash Core
22 oz. Fiberglass

Maple/Ash cores optimize the responsive high-energy ride of Hard Maple with the impact and vibration absorption of White Ash.
Maple / Fir Core
16 oz. Fiberglass

Blending Maple and Fir creates a far lighter ski ideal for pure backcountry and touring.

Maple / Fir Core
8 oz. Carbon (+$99)
Using carbon in place of fiberglass creates the lightest possible ski while maintaining torsional rigidity and optimum performance.

Materials & Build

To achieve the highest possible quality, we handbuild your ski cores, blending hard maple, white ash, and fir. All Igneous skis have quartersawn hard maple sidewalls, which provide superior impact resistance to ABS and higher structural integrity than P-tex.

Depending on your construction profile, varying weights of premium composite stitched triaxial fiberglass or carbon will enforce the stiffness and torsional rigidity of your skis. Bulletproof Kevlar protects from rocks and strategically placed rubber foil dampens chatter on crud.

Typically found only on World Cup skis but found on all Igneous skis, sintered graphite bases are fastest, hold more wax, and are always all black. We stone grind them and 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 strong, fast, and provide both durability and tuning longevity.

Igneous Topsheets

Igneous wood topsheets lend unique character to our skis and also provide additional rigidity. Wood is the original high-tensile, cross-linked polymer matrix, and with our high-performance epoxy, the topsheet significantly stiffens flex.


We also gladly work with local artists on custom art skis. For maximum performance, optional carbon topsheets increase response and reduce weight.

Care & Warranty

Igneous provides tuning and care instruction. Skis are warrantied for defects in materials and craftsmanship for three years or the equivalent of one 100-day season. All service is factory direct.

About Igneous

Igneous has handmade custom skis in Jackson, Wyoming for over 25 years. We set out to make the perfect big mountain freeride powder skis that could withstand an entire season of hard-charging in Jackson Hole, a place notorious for devouring skis. That mission remains.
