J Says Best For: Packed powder / Touring / Backcountry / Trees

Waist Width: 102mm

1) Look at the size of your current skis and consider if you like the length or prefer shorter or longer.

2) Remember that 2-3 cm is not going to make a huge difference. Over 5cm will start to make a difference in feel.

The chart below is for general reference based on your height, but you should also consider these other factors. . . 

Choose LONGER length if you:
- Feel your current skis are too small
- Want to ski faster & float better
- Are a heavier person so want more stability
- Are an expert, aggressive skier


Choose SHORTER length if you:
- Feel your current skis are too long
- Want easier maneuverability & float in powder is less important
- Are a light weight person and want more maneuverability
- Are a beginner, casual skier

The Artwork

Mike Hayes x J Collab

You’ll never get first tracks at Stowe… because Mike Hayes already beat ya to it! He’s at the top of Mount Mansfield before sunrise, but not just on pow days… wind, ice, sleet, rain, he always goes skiing as he says, “NO MATTER WHAT.” 

This local legend stacks over 100 days a year, walking up over 2k vertical feet to the top in a mind blowing 32 minutes (check his KOM on Strava). By the time you pull into the lot for first chair, he’s already skied YOUR pow for hours! Then at 9am he switches out of his superhero costume to become the mild-mannered Global Head of Digital & Technology at Ben & Jerry’s ice cream.

For Mike’s graphic we reached out to our local friend Peter Cirilli, known globally for his pro snowboard photography. The top graphic is a combination of Peter and Mike’s own photos of Mount Mansfield, highlighting some of the legendary tree stashes Mike skis daily. The base was only fitting to make entirely red like Mike’s infamous bright red jacket. If you’re at the mountain early enough you may catch a glimpse of a tiny red figure in the distance, that’s Mike. 

I'm only building 350 pairs of these Limited Edition skis and hand-signing and numbering each, take yourself to new heights with this soon to be classic before it sells out.

The Escalator™

132 - 102 - 123

The Escalator is easy up, easy down… you CAN have your cake and eat it too!

This lightweight ski pulls double duty for dawn patrol touring and as your daily driver hot lapping the resort. The secret ingredient is a combo of a super light Aspen core paired with our classic downhill ski construction for a solid feel regardless of snow conditions. Its 102mm waist perfectly fits into every skier’s quiver as a do-it-all tool that’s as comfortable laying down quick, snappy carves on firm groomers as it is surfing fresh snow in tight trees or wide-open pow fields. The Escalator's ridiculously light swing weight feels like there’s nothing on your feet, so your legs stay happier longer, letting you shred stronger from first chair to last call. A subtle tail notch provides reliable skin clip retention integrated into a legit twin-tip shape for badass street cred passing people on the way up… and down!
