Plenty of manufacturers say they are offering custom builds. But Vin is different. He’ll listen to you to understand how and where you ski. Then he’ll present you with a design to meet those needs. Front side carver? All mountain? Full on pow ski? He’s got it covered. Rocker, camber, both? Got it.
This is a custom approach top-to-bottom, built specifically for you. Every single pair of skis Vin builds is unique to the owner in dimension and top sheet design.
Vin will contact you for a consultation, listen to your needs and submit a design within a few weeks. Once you approve the ski design and custom topsheet, Vin will build your skis for delivery before Thanksgiving 2019. You pay only shipping, or you could pick them up at his shop in Northern Vermont.
“I came to skiing late in life and have worked hard to become an expert. It’s a judgement call at this point, but I’m certainly getting close. I bought a pair of Whiterooms the the summer of 2017 and now — at age 60 — I have upped my game. No question my Whiterooms have had a big impact. Made to the highest standards, these are quality skis, made specifically for me. Whiterooms are not prone to the manufacturing defects that plague many small volume manufacturers.”
