Some Words on Women's Products

Thursday, December 16, 2010 10:16:47 AM America/Denver

Once there was a time when there were no specific skis or boards for women! Pretty crazy when you think about it, since many of the best and most creative riders on the hill are in fact the girls. Like the way things usually happen, once it started happening it went wild and women’s specific skis and boards were selling like crazy. But then, a funny thing happened.

Monday, November 29, 2010 10:21:08 AM America/Denver

As President of RAMP it has been incredibly fun and exciting to develop a completely new product line of skis and boards starting from scratch.
