What the TML crew says about us

If you talk to anyone who knows me they will tell you that I am a big stickler for quality gear. For the last several seasons my Wagners are built to deal with any type of conditions, from blower pow to breakable wind board. Their quality and craftsmanship excels in all conditions like no other ski I have used in over 30 years of guiding around the world. If you are seriously looking for that perfect ski, look no further than Wagner. You won’t be disappointed!

I’ve had worse assignments: pair up with Pete Wagner to design and test the ideal ski for conditions in Alaska’s Tordrillo Mountains …! We needed something wide enough to handle the depth of snow, with enough heft to perform at speed and enough in the tail to manage a guide’s backpack … but above all to be fun to ski on. From the first time we put clients on the ski the feedback was enthusiastic – so much so that we have added sizes all through our client range, scaled down to a 160cm ski for the light and little.

My Wagner skis are the greatest tools you can ever imagine for making big, fast, super G turns in the deep snow of Alaska and Utah! Thank you to the Wagner team for making a ski like this that not only performs like a highly tuned sports car, but reminds me every run how great life is when you’re in the mountains with people you love.
