    What skis are made in America?

    I am making an effort to buy more shit that was made in my country. The purpose of this thread is to compile a list of "made in the USA" skis. Please feel free to add or correct anything.

    Criteria - Must have skis manufactured in America, not just American owned. I think Canadian stuff can slip in here too, being we are such good neighbors.

    I'm sorry, you must be mistaken...
    ALL PM Gear skis are made in the US of FKNA.
    ('cept the last 4 pair of 195 superbros I'm holding onto dearly)
    We haven't outsourced any of our production for four or five years now.
    We don't make the snow. We just make it more enjoyable.

    Not 100% sure if their skis are manufactured in the USA, but Liberty is HQ out of Avon, CO.

    Apparently, "Liberty was the first and remains the ONLY ski company to use bamboo in all our skis."

    Not so sure about the last part either... hmmm.

    Also, Skilogik is based out of breckenridge

    Liberty's skis are made in China.

    OTOH, how many of the skis "made in America" use materials made in America? Are you talking assembled in America, or all of the bits have to come from American sources who may have purchased them overseas, or all of the bits have to actually have been produced in America? Including glues, fiberglass, carbon, nylon, the whole deal.

    Good luck on that last one...

    Both Liberty and SkiLogik are manufactured in China.

    Unless you want to replace the word "made" for "ruined", I'd recommend removing 333 form that list.

    Never Summer factory (like Icelantic/Fatypus/RMU)? I was always under the impression High Society was another made in China, but I guess I'm wrong on that.

    Fortitude Skis are made in Golden, CO. http://www.fortitudeskis.com/

    Also, Grace Skis is a new company, made in Denver. http://skigrace.com/
