Wagner Custom Skis and Snowboards, known for precision custom ski fitting and design, has selected Momentum Media PR to lead their strategic media relations and publicity efforts. Engaging public relations support marks a significant growth step for Wagner Custom, an emerging brand leading the trend in bringing high-performance custom boards to recreational skiers and riders.

Wagner Custom, located in Placerville, CO, just outside of Telluride, produces high-performance wood-core skis and snowboards with a personalized fit and design, built from the finest materials and finished by hand in a clean and green shop powered solely by wind and sun. Established in 2006, Wagner Custom has seen the demand for custom skis grow steadily over the last two seasons, as skiers and riders look to break through their plateaus and into the next level in performance and mastery of specific conditions and terrain.

CEO and founder Pete Wagner spent close to 10 years working as an engineer in the golf industry, developing sophisticated software programs used for the design, analysis, and production of high-tech golf equipment. He designed custom golf clubs for pros such as John Daly, Lanny Wadkins, and Jim Furyk, and developed a scientific fitting system for matching individual golfers to their optimal equipment. The Wagner Custom fitting and manufacturing systems are modeled after the proven custom system used in providing precision golf equipment to the pros.
To move from concept to execution for skis, Wagner put together a staff and advisory board of ski industry veterans. With expertise in snow sports manufacturing, design,
strategy, sales, teaching, racing, tuning and marketing, the Wagner custom team
consists of a complementary group of individuals who are passionate about putting people on their perfect-fit custom skis.
“We're designing skis one pair at a time, guiding each skier and rider through our ski-fitting process, and helping them to reach their highest potential on snow,” said Pete Wagner. “So far, our business has grown exponentially over the last two years, mostly through word-of-mouth. We're now ready to spread the word further that the real breakthrough in ski performance is in precision fit and custom-tailored skis.”
In the start of last season, Wagner Custom acquired the worldwide licensing agreement for the marketing, manufacturing and distribution of Winterstick snowboards, and produces a select line for the brand. The 2008-09 season Winterstick line-up includes the Grandfather of all snowboards, the Swallowtail, as well as the popular ST and Tom Burt models, all produced on-demand and shipped direct to consumer. Winterstick snowboards are available exclusively through www.Winterstick.com.
