ey All, Neil, Founder of Prospect here. As you may or may not have heard, Prospect made a huge move relocating our entire factory from Madison, Wisconsin to our new home in Roseville/Rocklin, California. We found a great spot nestled right at the base of the foothills leading into the Tahoe National Forest. The move was accompanied by my beautiful girlfriend Jesse and our shop dog Bodhi.
The Sacramento/Roseville area is something amazing and Unique for Prospect. This is one of the only places in the world where it is warm enough to have cable parks like Wake Island Wake Park and Velocity Island Wake Park be open for an extended time during the year AND have world class skiing and snowboarding all within an hour drive in the Lake tahoe region. I can't stress how unique this area really is! While I do miss Madison, the fact that this matches up with our products perfectly, it is also my dream playground.
The new factory is also stepping up our game. We think the diverse crowd traveling from San Fransisco has an eye for unique stuff. We're going to dial in our artisan eye and produce some ultra-unique concepts that large companies quite honestly will never be able to produce. It took a long time and a lot of hard work, but Prospect is in an awesome position develop ideas that don't exist in ski shops, at REI, or with online retailers.
The plan going forward is to continue to offer our skis, snowboards, and wakeboards directly to our fans with the exception of a few of our supportive friends at West Rock Wake Park and Valdosta Wake Compound where you will be able to purchase Prospect Gear.
We plan to open our shop to the Public on Shop Local Saturday. We welcome the public to not only see our skis and boards but to experience how we craft them. This is a totally unique experience. On November 25th, 2017 we will have our grand opening. Come see the factory, have a drink on us, and pick up fresh gear form Prospect!
The new shop is located at:

Have a great winter all!
