I was surfing around the internet this morning looking for interesting snowsport pieces to share with you and I came across and an interesting article about a guy called Pete Wagner from Ohio US, who uses a computer algorithum to taylor make skis.

 

The process takes into account the height, weight, terrain you like to ski and the model of skis you have skiied in the past to create your perfect skis. Each pair of skis are made from scratch and the computer will cut and mill every part to perfection before the ski is constructed by hand. Of course there is a price for this service with skis costing around $1,750

 

But it begs the question which is best, custom made skis or off the rack skis? What do you think?
