Skiing is our way of life.There is nothing we love more than skiing, except our families. The builders, designers, and skiers at Arête include high level racers, backcountry addicts, industrial design CAD professionals, fully certified ski bums, and world class ski technicians, who make, take, and test our gear all over the Northern Rockies, in Canada, Alaska, and even as far south as New Zealand. Building our own gear, and creating the perfect product for friends, family, and clients, is our obsession.
For us, that has meant fighting hard to stay small. The process of building something unique, and just for you, doesn’t lend itself to large manufacturing numbers. Building relationships takes time. We take the time to do things right, inspect every pair, and give back to the sport that gave us so much.
