Community Skis: A Mobile Ski Shop With an Unconventional Approach

Get full access to Outside Learn, our online education hub featuring in-depth fitness, nutrition, and adventure courses and more than 2,000 instructional videos when you sign up for Outside+.

It all starts out with a question: “What do you want your skis to do?” Michael Lish and Kristin Broumas of Community Skis design custom skis out of a hand-built tiny home workshop. This asset grants them the mobility and freedom to enjoy nature while they work. They are dedicated to sustainability, community engagement, and education, and you can usually find them parked in a ski town, the backcountry, or giving a workshop to high school students.
