If you are looking for beautiful hand crafted skis, look no further than Igneous Skis in Jackson, WY, but you may have to wait a while. They only pump out 100 pairs a season and each pair is carefully tailored entirely by had.  The story of how the company got its start is pretty interesting:

“In 1996, Mike Parris worked as a robotics engineer at Carnegie Melon. While he developed technology used on the Mars rover expeditions, his friends began building custom skis that would allow them to ride the terrain Jackson Hole had to offer. Mike pitched in with his mechanical expertise now and then to help design the equipment and process, ultimately leaving behind his career in robotics to create handcrafted skis that would forever leave a mark on the ski industry.”

They also have a gorgeous line of snowboards that deserve a look:Screen Shot 2016-04-01 at 6.05.04 PM
