Denver, Colo., January 7, 2019 - Meier Handmade Skis from Colorado Trees announces their new eco initiatives for 2020, in a constant pursuit of responsible manufacturing. The line focuses on waste reduction, higher quality base materials and tops sheets, and few and non-toxic resins. Since Meier makes their skis, all initiatives are immediate.

In waste reduction, Meier has eliminated over 12 feet of single-use plastic film waste from each ski and snowboard in favor of a removable adhesive band. They now use a small adhesive band instead of single-use shrink wrap over the entire ski or snowboard. A durable hydrophobic nylon topsheet with printing on the underside boosts durability and aesthetic appeal.

Ted Eynon, owner and founder at Meier explains why smaller is better, “ We use the highest quality materials available with an environmental mission, attention to detail and very durable reputable top sheets. We make skis to last."

Instead of traditional epoxy, the non-toxic Super Sap used is derived from pine resin and recycled vegetable oil for greener manufacturing. The product guide with warranty and registration information included with product purchase is made from 100% PCW paper. The extra thick base material and edges deliver more turns and more turns over the life of the ski for a long-lasting product.

Meier’s eco-friendly and high performance skis and snowboards get their unique character from their signature aspen and beetle kill pine wood core. They harvest the trees from the western slope of Colorado with responsible silvicultural techniques to help mitigate wildfire risk and give trees killed in the beetle kill pine epidemic a second life.

Featured Skis for 2020

Quickdraw with Rocky Mountain High Graphic

Choose the model, choose the length for this stunning collection of images from around the Colorado Rocky Mountains! The tips showcase Maroon Bells near Aspen, one of the most photographed scenes in North America. The Colorado flag and "Welcome to Colorful Colorado" sign transition into the iconic Crystal Mill at the tail of our Rocky Mountain High graphic.

The Quickdraw - is an all-mountain, frontside carver beast and this years best seller. It features a wide shovel and narrow waist for quick and effortless edge-to-edge turns. The wide shovel helps the tip float through powder and crush crud while giving the skier a smooth, easy-turning ride. It's lightweight and nimble but the beetle-kill pine and aspen wood core remains stable at high speeds. The Quickdraw topsheet can be applied to any model of Meier ski or snowboard. MSRP of $995.

The Prospector

Winning athlete hearts and the Editors Choice award from Backcountry Magazine, the Prospector is the newest ski from Meier Skis. It's built for the backcountry and touring to be light on the uphill and stable on the down, whether it's turns you earn or lift-served. Meier built this ski with just the right amount of carbon fiber to maintain a superior on-snow feel. The Prospector is offered in two widths underfoot, 96 or 106, to find a float for every skier. It has a lighter fiberglass and the most durable base material available for inevitable backcountry rock encounters. The Prospector is a favorite and a unique addition to our fleet of over 16 models of skis and snowboards.
