The "Native" is inspired by former Parlor social media director and fishing extraordinaire James Hamilton. Like many folks who visit the Parlor, James wanted a ski that could shine in New England’s finest soft snow conditions yet have the versatility for groomers and even the hard surfaces too. A ski quick and maneuverable enough for the tight trees, stable enough for the crud, and solid enough for a real arc. Moreover, he wanted a graphic that would connect him to, depending on the day, either his close second or superior New England pastime: fly fishing.

The Native is built on Parlor’s popular Kingfisher 105 platform. Parlor owner Mark Wallace brought the graphics to life, incorporating the beautiful colors of trout and streams where they live. On the uphill, the graphic will remind you of New England’s stunning beauty and natural resources. On the downhill, the Native will have you grinning from ear to ear.

camber profile

Camber describes the bottom profile of the ski and is a significant design factor.

Utilizing an early rise in the tip and traditional camber underfoot makes this ski quick and playful in the trees and the sides of the trail. The camber provides stability and edge grip, and the long tip rise makes you float over bumps and through the powdah!

flex

The native is built with our medium flex pattern. It is forgiving enough for soft snow with substance and torsional strength for the groomers and hard snow.

lay-up options

The laminates are the main structural component of our skis. All of our custom graphic skis come with the option of a frontside or backcountry lay up.

Frontside:

Built with three layers of Vectorply triaxial fiberglass, this lay up prioritizes dampness and stability while still maintaining a low swing weight.

Backcountry:

Built with two layers of Vectorply triaxial fiberglass and two layers of carbon fiber skrim, this lay up is lighter in weight for those who like to spend some time going up hill. The carbon also gives the ski a bit of added pop.
