What's up everyone. I have the opportunity to be involved in starting a new ski company. I know you've all heard this before, so let me just start by saying the opportunity is real and the infrastructure is in place to make it happen. My purpose in coming here is to seek the opinion of the most complete and diverse gathering of skiers on the planet. If you are so inclined I would greatly appreciate some replies to the below questions. Your answers will help shape the future of a company, so please, speak your mind.
1.) Should I? With all the new companies that have been started up in the last two years, do you guys think there is room for another U.S. based ski company dedicated to the future of the sport?
2.) What is most important to you guys: team, advertising, warranty, durability, price, graphics, made in the u.s.a., shape and flex, construction, online vs. physical store availability (would you buy without seeing/flexing the ski) anything else you can think of
3.) Would you be interested in the capability to have your own custom graphic for a small fee?
4.) Just throw in your two cents. What would you like to see if you had input on a ski company, because you do.
