New Wood Veneer & Stock Topsheet Graphics

Each season, we come out with a few new stock topsheet graphics and order limited-run wood veneers to keep things fresh. Here is a look at some new options and inspiration for custom artwork on your skis this year.

Wood Veneers

Our wood veneers are limited batch orders which makes them extremely unique. They are thin pieces of real wood that age gracefully. Each season we purchase a few new options which we will have in stock until they run out. Here are a few of our favorites that have come in this fall.

Stock Graphics

Our graphic designer, Heather Baltzley, puts together our stock graphics. Throughout the season, she collects ideas and puts them to use each fall. She finds most of her inspiration outside through things she finds interesting, curious, or beautiful. Here are a few of our new stock topsheet options and Baltzley’s inspiration for the graphics.

SOLACE

 

This graphic is inspired from my time hiking in the Pacific Northwest, specifically along a section of the Pacific Crest Trail in the Three Sisters Wilderness. The towering trees, both “front lit” and “back lit” make me feel calm and at peace–hence, “solace”.

RISING SUN

 

I love the brush strokes and movement of these two paintings. Mountains continue to be a theme in our stock graphics, regardless of whether they are skiable.

GREAT WAVE

 

“The Great Wave Off Kanagawa” is one of my all-time favorite images. It was made by Japanese artist Hokusai, and published sometime between 1829 and 1833. It was the first print in his series “Thirty-Six Views of Mount Fuji.” I had ALWAYS wanted to do a “Great Wave” topsheet, I’m thrilled it has finally happened.

MAROON BELLS

 

I’ve always been inspired by the gradient-appearance of backlit mountains on the horizon. This graphic is specifically the Maroon bells, as seen from the trails on Aspen Mountain.
