Praxis Skis are “Handcrafted in the Sierra Nevada Mountains.” Our factory is located on the North Shore of Lake Tahoe, where the mountains are our backyard. Our skis are constructed by inspired skiers who take pride in producing the perfect ride for a variety of individual needs and styles. By designing skis that work for you, we aim to elevate the experience of skiing by reducing fatigue and increasing the amount of time you’re on the hill.
Praxis Skis was founded by Keith O’Meara and is supported by a group of dedicated skiers committed to developing new concepts for the ski industry. Since the inception of Praxis Skis and throughout the past eight years, this once-small company has built a remarkable reputation for producing progressively designed skis that also happen to be some of the most well-built and most durable skis in the world. Unlike many other companies out there, our skis are manufactured from beginning to end at our factory in North Lake, Tahoe. Our Computer Numerical Cutting (CNC) technology allows us to produce low volumes of custom skis with incredibly accurate precision. When the CNC technology is combined with our commitment to developing all of our premium ski parts in-house, we can more easily prototype and test progressive ideas before releasing the model to the world. It is not uncommon for us to be on the lift talking about a new ski design on Saturday, then skiing and testing the finished product within a couple days. This unique aspect of our manufacturing process allows us to push the conventions of ski technology and create innovative designs that often become industry standards.
We are constantly striving to challenge norms within the ski industry. Being at the forefront of the “Rocker Revolution”, the skis we develop are not your ordinary skis. Our use of progressive shapes and moldings has enabled us to develop skis that make skiing off-piste, powder, and variable conditions easy for even the intermediate skier, propelling the rider to a whole new level of skiing. Furthermore, our skis have been tested and proven around the world in freeskiing competitions by riders Kevin O’Meara and Drew Tabke. The Praxis Team, including its craftsmen, regularly fuel the company with the fresh ideas and critical feedback necessary in the never-ending pursuit of the perfect turn.
At Praxis Skis, although our roots are based in creating Powder and Freeride skis, for the 2013 ski season we have 14 different models, ranging vastly from park, to everyday, to powder. Come by and talk to us about which one of our models we can customize for you. This year we are very excited to announce that all of our customers will be able to choose any graphic from our Graphic Library (link to http://www.praxisskis.com/shop/buy-skis/praxis-graphic-library.html) as well as what flex pattern they feel perfectly suites them. Along with additions like a hybrid carbon/fiberglass layup and woodgrain topsheets, your perfect ski is just mouse clicks away.
