build class

COVID-19 Update:
We will continue to monitor CDC and WHO recommendations, while following the MA state guidelines for safety.

The Parlor Build Class is the ultimate experience for any skier—young or old, couples or friends, parents and siblings or solo! There is nothing like carving a turn on a pair of skis that you made yourself; and during this class you work closely with the craftsman, designers and engineers at Parlor to build a ride that you can truly take pride in.

Every ski build begins with a fitting to determine what specifications will deliver you the perfect ski. Once fitted, you will work with a designer via email to create your own custom graphics for your top sheets. In class, you will work along side us—building your bases and cores, printing your top sheets, laying up the skis, and finally sanding and finishing the side walls and peeling the protective coating to reveal your skis!
