Based in Salt Lake City, UT at the base of the Wasatch Mountains, DPS Skis was inspired by a vision to make perfect skis worthy of those who live and breathe skiing. Founded in 2005 by professional skier and ski designer Stephan Drake and his partner Peter Turner the guys claim the title for the world’s first and only Pure prepreg carbon fiber sandwich ski, transferred the word “rocker” from surfing to skiing—then built the first rockered ski with sidecut—and unleashed the Spoon and Spoon Technology…. game changer huh?
I wonder if Stephan dreamt that his childhood trips to Colorado would lead to a career and obsession with snow and ultimately lead him down the pathway to developing some of the world’s most advanced skis. I’m super excited to hear Stephan’s story and the inception of DPS Skis.
