Lithic Skis - Handcrafted in the Cascades
We are excited to be the exclusive retail partner of Washington State's only independent ski company, Lithic Skis. Owners and manufacturers, Ty Bourgeois and Paul Roberts have honed their ski-making craft working alongside some of the top independent ski companies. They couldn't help but move up here to the foothills of the Cascade mountain range to begin making sustainable, environmentally friendly skis that not only contain high quality ingredients, but are durable and can withstand all types of terrain.
Each ski is built on demand. This not only reduces waste, but allows for Ty and Paul to "handcraft the necessary parts to your specifications, press, tune and ship" skis that are suited to you and your backcountry needs.

Lithic Arlo 116 - 170cm & 182cm
This is a what a true all-mountain ski should be. These skis are built on a light, backcountry hardwood core with generous tip and tail rocker, slight camber underfoot, and a five point shape in order to deliver a playful touring ski engineered for sending routes with confidence in any and all conditions. If you appreciate skis that don't mess around, you won't be disappointed.
Lithic Ramblin Jack 108 - 164cm, 172cm, 181cm
The Ramblin' Jack 108 serves as Lithic's go-to backcountry ski that can handle an enormous variety of terrain and snow types. Unlike most of Lithic's models, they've deisgned this ski with a boot center that's substantially further back which shortens up the tail length behind your binding so those techy kick turns can be made with ease.
