Mountain Jay

Factory Seconds

Our 'Factory Seconds' are brand new Parlor-made skis that contain slight blemishes in the graphics

The Mountain Jay combines elements from its narrower wasted brethren, namely the Cardinal's groomer and carving performance and Kingfisher's playfulness, with the Heron's surf through deep snow.

The Jay carries a wide platform and perfect rocker profile for greater stability and superior float for soft snow skiing. Rarely does a wider ski blur the lines between all mountain and big mountain like the Jay.

For many this bird will become a single choice for everyday skiing, or a perfect wider ski addition to the quiver.

camber profile

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

reverse camber w/ early-rise tip & tail

Reverse camber (or "rocker") is when the tips and tails do not contact the snow when the ski lays flat. Reverse camber makes the ski more playful and easier to pivot off trail, without sacrificing much edge grip.

flex

To help provide the best fit possible Parlor makes each ski in three flexes: soft, medium and stiff. Flex is determined through height/weight and skier style. The right flex allows a skier to access all of the contact points and performance of the ski: so the skier controls the ski and not the other way around. Medium is the default choice and appropriate for most riders.

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.
