Swiss Massiv Allmountain Ski
The Swiss Massiv Allmountain Ski is perfect for those looking for touring capability without sacrificing performance or style.
It’s a versatile ski for demanding skiers. Offering enjoyment both on and off the piste, it’s no wonder that this yew wood tends to win over other materials in popularity each year! Its softer front provides uplift at speed while still providing stability when you need it most. Also, the broader side cut ensures enough edge grip where expert steeps demand solid footing too.
A ski that we recommend for this kind of skiing is Entlebucher Yew.
You can pick the suitable size for this ski, as well as the binding you’d like to have. Every ski is designed considering the bodyweight, and driving style of the skier. For in-depth information about how to choose the right ski size, click here.
What makes Swiss Massiv skis so unique?
There are three primary elements used in the development of Swiss Massiv skis:
You might wonder how the creator managed to create skis that are both technically and visually striking. The secret is in individually sourced local Swiss wood incorporated with bamboo, using uniquely created construction techniques.
A pair of Swiss Massiv skis consists of 30 individual parts. To build them properly, the owner created a process of almost 50 work steps which take about nine hours of labor. So, with all the waiting periods for drying, a pair of skis takes about three weeks to produce.
Since Swiss Massiv skis are all hand-made, each of their skis is a one-of-a-kind product. Plus, the limited production – with each pair having an individual number – expresses, even more, the brand’s unique identity. Every pair of skis has its unique serial number engraved in stainless steel at the back.
Not to mention the fact that the owner, René Unternährer, creates these skis in the very heart of Switzerland. Swiss Massiv skis are the outcome of his passion and quest for precision crafting of this highly complex product. That’s why he was able to create such a ski that performs with a supremely comfortable glide.
This is how the owner himself described the start of the creation process:
I don’t simply buy wood to make my skis. I buy a tree because the character of the skis starts with a tree.
