What Telluride says about us

I am the very happy owner of two pairs of Wagner skis. I teach skiing and each day can be different. Wagner made me skis with the exact characteristics I asked for. I like my skis to feel like an extension of my body with nothing to figure out. These skis slice and grip when they need to. They are very durable if you encounter rocks and need a ski to last a long time. The icing on the cake is customizing the graphics on the top sheet. How fun is that?

I put customers on Wagner skis because I believe they will get a terrific experience in their skiing. Attention to detail in the quality of each pair of skis is superior. The skis are calibrated to a person’s physical makeup which allows them to enjoy the precision, integrity, forgiveness of each and every turn, particularly on the terrain they enjoy the most.

I was always on the hunt for an all-around ski that matches my style of skiing with the terrain here in Telluride. I enjoyed the process of working with Pete to design a custom ski that would be an ‘extension of my body’. And, looking down to see my own graphics makes me feel that these are really ‘my’ skis and that is so beautiful!

Pete Wagner opening shop here in Telluride is one of the best things to ever happen to this place. We immediately jumped on his boards and have been major proponents ever since. The skis are straight fun, lively and proven very durable. Our guides at Alpenglow Ski Safaris swear by them and I have personally smiled big through hundreds of days on Wagner skis! Thanks Pete!
