Praxis Skis are “Handcrafted in the Sierra Nevada”. Our factory is located on the North Shore of Lake Tahoe, where the mountains are our backyard. Our skis are constructed by inspired skiers who take pride in producing the perfect ride for a variety of individual needs and styles. By designing skis that work for you, we aim to elevate your skiing experience.
For the past 15 years since its establishment by founder Keith O’Meara, this specialized, niche company has built a remarkable reputation for producing some of the most well-built and durable skis in the world, featuring unmatched progressive designs. Unlike many other companies out there, our skis are manufactured 100% in house from beginning to end at our factory in North Lake, Tahoe. Our Computer Numerical Cutting (CNC) technology allows us to produce low volumes of custom skis with incredibly accurate precision. When the CNC technology is combined with our commitment to developing all of our premium ski parts in-house, we can more easily prototype and test progressive ideas before releasing the model to the world. It is not uncommon for us to be on the lift talking about a new ski design on Saturday, then skiing and testing the finished product within a couple days. This unique aspect of our manufacturing process allows us to push the conventions of ski technology and create innovative designs that often become industry standards.
We constantly strive to challenge the norms within the ski industry. Our use of progressive shapes and moldings has enabled us to develop the perfect tools for any mountain adventure, from deep powder days on your local ski hill to summiting 10,000 ft peaks in the backcountry. Our skis perform beautifully in every condition, whether it’s off-piste, powder, or variable, elevating the skier to a whole new level in their skiing experience. There’s a reason our skis have made their mark in freeskiing competitions by riders Kevin O’Meara, Drew Tabke and Lars Chickering-Ayers . The Praxis Team, including its craftsmen, regularly fuel the company with the fresh ideas and critical feedback necessary in the never-ending pursuit of the perfect turn.
At Praxis Skis, although we’re rooted in powder and freeride skiing, our current lineup of 21 models ranges vastly from park, to powder, to the everyday adventure. Contact us and let's talk about which one of our models we can customize for you personally.
