It’s been almost 10 years since our last ski design contest so the hype at NS HQ was all time when we partnered up with Gilson for this. We certainly had high hopes for your designs on, and you absolutely did not disappoint. With over 130 entries we were blown away by the talent of our community. In the end, the contest was so close that the judges needed extra time to narrow down on the winner and the 10 other finalists. Big thanks to the @GilsonSkis team for making this a reality, and to you guys for making this an amazing display of art on skis.

Without further ado here are the results:


First, the 10 runners-up who will have the opportunity to purchase their own creation at a special reduced price. In no particular order, they are:










And of course, BEANS @rusto.

Ultimately, though, there could only be one grand prize winner. And after much thought, the guys over at Gilson Skis have picked @SMSVISUS .

They'll be taking home a pair of their custom-designed skis along with an extra pair for a friend.
