Movement Skis Partners with Exclusive South American Ski/Board Operation
Ski brand joins forces with leading Ski Tour operator – PowderQuest Tours of South America
Vancouver, BC (August 29, 2007) – Movement Skis, the Swiss-born freeride and freestyle ski brand, is proud to announce the company has entered into a working partnership with PowderQuest Tours, the leading Ski and Snowboard tour operator in Chile and Argentina. PowderQuest has been taking its clients into the spectacular powder terrain of the Andes of Patagonia since 1998.
PowderQuest will be equipping both their clients and their guides with the latest powder tools from Movement Skis. PowderQuest guides will be riding and testing the Goliath, Pow Pow, Spark and Climax - all outfitted with the Fritschi Freeride Plus binding.
“PowderQuest is in a unique position to be testing our gear in true freeride big mountain conditions when the rest of the industry is at the beach,” said Jayson Faulkner of Movement North America. “The ability for year round testing and riding gives us lots of great feedback and the terrain of Patagonia is ideal for our performance programs”.
“Movement is a very cool partner for us and a brand that has such a fantastic big mountain, big terrain pedigree that it was obvious their skis were perfect for our clients, snow and terrain conditions,” said David Owen, founder of PowderQuest Tours. This season has been excellent in South America with big storm cycles dumping all of the southern Andes.
Movement Skis manufactures all of its skis for big mountain freeride and freestyle skiers, in its own factory with proprietary high performance wood cores. All of their wood cores are certified Sustainable Forest Practices harvested. Learn more at http://www.movementskis.com
