Skis have come a long way in the past 10 years. The days of "short skis suck" have definitely gone by the wayside as the trends have brought out shorter, fatter skis for just about everyone. The differences between tele skis and alpine skis have also become blurred with pinheads riding alpines regularly and many an alpine skier mounting up a pair of Black Diamonds. Today we must also consider whether to go with reverse camber or sidecut and rockered tips and/or tails. Below are some of the most popular fatties on the market today. Tahoe is a big player in the big ski market with three companies (PMGear, Praxis, and Moment) all located in the Reno Tahoe area. We'll start with their offerings.


PMGear has led the ski industry in terms of ski design and sales marketing over recent years. Selling skis exclusively through the web 2.0 model, they are able to provide handmade, carbon fiber/fiberglass hybrid skis at reasonable prices.

Praxis Skis has been making the fun shapes out of Truckee for several years now. In addition to top freeskiing competitors Drew Tabke and Kevin O'Meara, Praxis has added legend Dean Cummings to their talent pool this year.

Moment Skis have been making skis by hand in Reno for a bit longer than either Praxis or PMGear. As a result you can find their products online at sites like EvoGear and Backcountry.com. They are also a little more mainstream now in that they carry a full quiver of skis from big mountain to park and even a full lineup for the ladies.

You've all heard of K2. Now they are once again at the forefront of skiing with a lineup including the Shane McConkey inspired Pontoon The new Backside Series features innovative features designed to make back/sidecountry travel safer and easier.
