The Burnt Specials are designed by Sugarloaf local Jared Dicentes who knows a lot about ski design and construction having spent the last 25 years of his life in the ski industry running retail shops and designing skis with Atomic. He designed a true all mountain ski that is as much fun on groomers as it is off piste on Sugarloaf’s Burnt Mountain or Sun Valley’s back bowls. The Burnt special’s rockered tip has a softer flex to help with turn entry as well as adding float on those super soft days. The ski is a true cambered ski, so you’ll have no problem holding an edge on steep hard snow while enjoying the “pop” from a cambered ski.
The ski get’s its super performance from our “Mainer Wood Core”. Using locally sourced Maple and Poplar that is hand selected for its full grain and high quality. Each ski core is made right here at our factory at Sugarloaf, Maine to ensure your ski begins its journey with the best possible foundation. The sidewall material is Maple which has better performance characteristics than P-tex sidewalls and is much better for our environment. Our wood veneer top sheets are all FCS Certified and completely unique. Choose from Curly Maple, Domestic Gum, Elm, Walnut, Cherry, or Turkey Feather Ash.
We fully wrap each ski with specially treated steel metal edges for durability and peak performance and use DuraSurf base material. For those who are looking for speed we also have ISOSPEED Cold and All Temp World Cup race base material available for custom orders. Titinal can also be added on custom models for added damping and weight.
