Here’s the idea behind Flylow’s Good Lab: We create a unique, durable product that you’ll use and love in the mountains. You’ll love it even more because the profits from that product go to benefit a nonprofit or community organization working for an issue you believe in. Win, win, right?

 

Our latest Good Lab project? Recently, we teamed up with Moment Skis and the Tahoe Backcountry Alliance to build a customized ski that’ll benefit backcountry endeavors in the Sierra. The Tahoe Backcountry Alliance advocates for human-powered winter adventures in Tahoe’s vast backcountry. It’s a collection of passionate people working to protect and serve well-loved wilderness areas like Mount Tallac, Rubicon Peak, Pyramid Peak, and more. They work on issues like access, parking, conservation, and education.

 

The ski, hand-built in Reno, Nevada, by our friends at Moment Skis, is a customized version of Moment’s brand new Wildcat Tour 108, a lightweight touring ski with rocker in the tip and tail and camber underfoot. At 108 mm in the waist, it’s fat enough for pow days but still skinny enough for spring couloirs.

 

The original topsheet, made just for this ski, was designed by Tahoe-based creative Jen GilanFarr, who took 70s surf art and fused it with topography maps of Tahoe’s Castle Peak and Mount Tallac—two of the places the Tahoe Backcountry Alliance is working to protect.

 

All of the profits from this one-off ski will go to benefit the Tahoe Backcountry Alliance.

Mustache Rocker

Rocker at the tip and tail and camber underfoot allows for incredible float and maneuverability in the trees and chutes while maintaining a significant amount of edge hold for both the icy runouts and the groomers.

Construction

PAULOWNIA / ASH WOOD CORE
Full length, knot free, in house laminated wood core gives this ski its unique blend of liveliness and dampening. All wood sourced in the USA.
UHMW SIDEWALL
The strongest and most durable sidewall material on the market ensures you have the best edge hold available while ripping the piste.
LOWFAT LAYUP
A combination of custom lighter triaxial fiberglass, carbon fiber and Paulownia wood makes the uphill easier without sacrificing fun on the way back down.
4001 DURASURF BASE
Hands down the most durable base on the market. Dont worry about those snow snakes.
2.2 EURO EDGE
There are only handful of edge manufacturers in the world. We go straight to the source in Europe to offer the best edge possible. We do additional heat treating and bonding prep in house to make sure your edge stays sharper, lasts longer and can handle a beating.
