The top of the mountain

With all the snow that's been building up around the ramshackle beach cottage lately, I've been thinking about getting back on the slopes.

So when I found out that a crazy band of ski enthusiasts are making custom skis in an old service station just outside of Telluride, Colorado, I had to do a little research.

Wagner Custom Skis are made to order. After filling out your skier DNA, they design a custom set of skis specifically for not just your height, weight and level of expertise, but also where you ski, how often you ski and many other factors. 

Not only are each set custom made to fit the way you ski, they also allow you to customize the graphics to create a look that's all your own.

They cost two to three times as much as a typical high end pair of skis. But, since skiing is all about the gear – and where you're drinking apr├Ęs ski – there's always room at the top for something really special like these.
