About

Handcrafted one pair at a time in Loveland, Colorado

Hangfire Skis is a very small operation in Loveland, Colorado.  We’ve been handcrafting performance-driven custom skis since 2007 and continue to strive in creating the perfect skis for the serious skier.

Every Hangfire owner can expect a high quality, completely original, handmade pair of skis that will deliver exceptional performance. Typical build time is 4 weeks but varies depending on the current work load.  Demo skis are available upon request.
