Raccoon, 100% Maplewood Skis

January 20, 2015

How can you recognize skiers when they’re not on the slopes? Their “raccoon-eyed” tan from wearing ski goggles! This is what inspired the Raccoon name. The Québec-based ski manufacturer, founded in 2010 by four skiing and boarding enthusiasts, is today a blend of boldness and passion, resolve and respect for the environment.

What makes Raccoon skis stand out? Their composition. Made of 100% maple wood, these skis offer fluidity and power. We also like the refined lines and esthetic. This season’s models share a common thread, the colour black, with an image representing the names of the different skis.  L’Empreinte has a boot print design, Le Grand-Duc shows a striking great horned owl, Le Bison features a ferocious-looking buffalo. All are very eye-catching! Starting at $700.

The company is also very environmentally-conscious. In association with Tree Canada, it promises to plant a maple tree for every pair of skis sold.
