It’s the traditional, old school and almost forgotten methods of craftsmanship that always impress me the most. This video shows how traditional wooden skis are made in Norway and you get to see the entire process, the carving, shaving, shaping, bending and even the making of bindings from wood.
When skis went concave, that was a big deal. Aggressive skiers were soon carving deep lines into the hardpack and beginners were getting up and at ’em faster than ever. DPS wants to do that again with their funky Spoon.
