Whiskey and Skiing are a match made in heaven, but luckily at Parlor you don't need to wait for the after life to indulge. For the 2018-19 season we created an incredible new ski to partner up with one of the world's best whiskeys, "The Boss Hog" from WhistlePig Rye Whiskey.
The birth of this collaboration started almost a year ago when we met on the mountain and decided that we needed to find a way to incorporate the staves from a whiskey barrel into a ski to bring together our two favorite pastimes and celebrate a colorful chapter in our sport's history. We worked long hours to bring the dream to life and landed on the perfect solution -- making the sidewalls for our ski out of the oak from the barrels that aged The Boss Hog whiskey.
Available on any of our platforms, this super exclusive, one of a kind ski is only sold as a package with a bottle of The Boss Hog Vth Edition, The Spirit of Mauve, and can be purchased at the WhistlePig Tasting Room in Stowe. Limited quantities available.
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.
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.
Built with three layers of Vectorply triaxial fiberglass, this lay up prioritizes dampness and stability while still maintaining a low swing weight.
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.
