There’s no universal rule of thumb for how long a ski should be. The right length has to do with a skier’s height, weight, skiing ability and the ski’s shape. Generally speaking, the longer the ski, the more stability it will have at speed, but the tougher it will be to turn quickly. Conversely, the shorter the ski, the easier it will be to turn quickly, but the less stable it will be the faster you go. Learn more here.

Ski design starts with what is known as the waist — the width of the ski beneath the boot. Skis with a wider waist help you float in powder, but they require more work to turn. The right width depends mostly on the terrain where you spend most of your time skiing. Width is a crucial element to get right when choosing a pair of skis, and something you want to focus on first.

In 99% of ski designs, camber is a good thing. It creates more versatility, with better edge control and stability when you need it most. Camber is particularly helpful when skiing at high speeds, traversing across slopes, and skiing on firm or icy slopes. Having an effective edge is important: It aids in controlling your turn and gives you power. Learn more here.

More mass gives a ski more stability and helps to power through variable snow conditions without being kicked off the arc of the turn. The pilot (you) uses less energy in chop, crud and crust. Having mass in your skis is especially good for going downhill. If you have ever skied on an ultra-lightweight ski, you know that the ski tends to vibrate a lot and is easily deflected in challenging conditions. With that said though, lightweight is definitely helpful for uphill travel. Learn more here.

Our design-and-build process blends cutting-edge technology with artisanal craftsmanship. Specifications for your perfect-fit ski are created using advanced computerized diagnostic and design tools. From there, Wagner’s CNC milling machines are used to precisely cut parts of your ski so they fit together like a 3-D jigsaw puzzle. Our ski builders then assemble the parts with an exactitude not possible in a mass-production ski factory. We then press your skis, and clean and tune them to World Cup standards. We’ll help you choose the best bindings, and will mount your skis so you can immediately drop them in the snow and click in. Learn more about our process here.

James Parmalee

FINALLY!!! These skis have met my every expectation. I wanted a versatile, lightweight ski and I got it. Bumps, trees, on/off piste, powder, they do it all. Working with the Wagner team was an easy and good experience, not to mention their professionalism. I highly recommend Wagner and can’t wait to start working with the Wagner team again on a pair of backcountry skis!

Matt King

I didn’t think I was ready for Wagner Skis just being an intermediate-advanced skier, but they’ve transformed my skiing and confidence. My skiing experience has become more efficient and enjoyable. It’s like my skis have innate intelligence responding to me; rather than me forcing the ski to perform. Thank you Wagner Team!

Audrey Marnoy

If you want the absolute best ride / performance boards possible then you have found them. Pete will work with you until you are 100% satisfied. You might be thinking of the cost… My Wag’s replaced three sets: frontside carvers, all-mountain and pow. You figure each of those setups came in around 1K so I am still spending more than the Wag’s with far less performance. The only time I break out the extra big fatties is when it’s an epic dump and I need the extra float. No matter what I put them in, they performed above my expectations. Best money I have ever spent.

T De Beers

I believe! Got my custom skis last year and can’t take them off. My powder skis, my race skis both retired. The whole process is a great experience. They made my skis right to my needs. Fun is the word. I also got the exact colors and graphics. I really encourage anyone who has ever wondered why skis can’t be their best to contact Wagner and create YOUR skis.

There are skis and there are skis, and Wagner makes the latter. These skis aren’t born of molds, but technology and craftsmanship. Each Wagner product varies in length, width, sidecut, tip/tail shape, rocker/camber profile and material composure, depending on the stiffness/flex you’re after.
