“Meier Skis has been producing quality, handmade, wood skis since 2009, and we have a reputation for building some of the best wood skis on the planet. We use sustainable, locally-sourced wood, and carefully handcraft each pair in Denver, Colorado in our very own Craft Skiery. We think we make the best skis money can buy, and we’re not alone.” – Meier Skis
In October 2022 I met with Ted Eynon, owner of Meier Skis in Denver, at my art show with Harman Projects at Mirus Gallery. Ted gave me a tour of the legendary Meier Factory. It is an entirely unique experience, where a visitor can sit at the rustic but modern bar in the middle of the amazing ski shop, drink a local pint of brew, and watch skis being pressed in the workshop through a large plate glass window.
Touring the workshop, I was shown the labor-intensive process of turning locally and sustainably sourced wood into skis and boards. The only thing I can compare it to is touring a winery, where the love of craft produces only the best.
More to the point, I’d compare my tour of Meier Skis to a tour of my print studio. There’s a commitment to hand-crafted artistry in Meier Skis that I recognize in my own work. Teaming up with Meier Skis to produce a Chuck Sperry Artist Series of snowboards and skis, underscores our mutual commitment to artistry and craft. Meier’s use of a blend of beautiful wood makes a gorgeous substrate to my designs, and has an impact equal to my wood panel art prints on skis and boards you can use (by choosing your model) or display (by choosing wall art option).
I hope you enjoy my designs on Meier’s superbly handcrafted skis and boards!
