Ask Mike

Thursday, August 7, 2014 4:49:20 PM America/Denver

In an effort to be transparent with our valued customers, we wanted to offer a place for customers to ask our president questions about RAMP skis, snowboards, and longboards. If you have a question for Mike that you want addressed in his weekly blog, please email [email protected] and include "Ask Mike" in the subject line.

Hi friends of RAMP,

The factory was just closed for 2 weeks, went so fast it felt like 2 hours. That's what happens when you have fun right? This time last year we were waiting for another test at Mt. Hood during Labor Day weekend to validate the final snowboard constructio...

Frenzy Ski Review

Monday, April 1, 2013 10:02:16 AM America/Denver

FrenzySki: Ramp Frenzy, 179cm.


Location: Deer Valley, UT


Conditions: Many wind blown areas, 20-30 degrees F. 4-6 inches of wet snow two days prior, wet especially at lower elevations, causing the snow to become even softer once in sunlight. With higher edge degrees and edge angles, the chances of loosing your downhill edge and "hipping out" becomes greater as there is nothing to "hang onto." The snow simply falls away. So, it forces one to bend his knees to a great angle, lowering his center of gravity, and keeping his weight literally over the skis. It is much harder to throw one’s feet out from un...

Spring Update

Thursday, March 28, 2013 5:29:22 PM America/Denver

She’s working hard on knee rehab to be ready to dominate at the Olympics while not molding. We’re making really good progress in dialing the snowboard production process so we can produce many or all of ne...

Jay Burke reviews the Groundhog

Thursday, March 28, 2013 10:50:45 AM America/Denver

No secret that RAMP is located in Park City, Utah. So it should come as no surprise to you this is where I make my home as well. Here is Utah we pride ourselves in offering "the greatest snow on earth." So because 90% of the time we are skiing on soft snow, the Groundhog makes a great ski for this area.


I'm going to be talking specifically about the 179cm Groundhog in this review. The ski specs out at 137-100-123, and the radius is 19.39m. It employes the 50%-50% camber and of course a vertical bamboo core. With this ski being 100mm underfoot, and having early rise, I felt this ski would obvio...
