When brothers, Morgan and Caleb Weinberg founded Romp Skis in Crested Butte, Colorado, they had a vision of creating handcrafted custom skis tailored to the customer’s skills and needs. Since its beginnings in 2010, Romp has only offered full custom skis, designed with the customer’s input and crafted from different wood mixes to customize the flex and shape to the skier’s specifications. Each custom ski takes about two months to produce, but good things come to those who wait—Romp quickly made a name for itself in the ski industry, winning awards for their skis’ performance, including earning a spot in SKI’s 2019 Gear Guide.

Now, Romp is adding a stock ski option for skiers who want a high-quality handmade ski without the wait or price tag of a custom build (which run $1,050-$1,450). The stock skis are available in nine different models across the all-mountain, powder, backcountry, and frontside categories. Retailing at $750, each features a rocker profile and flex designed to complement each ski’s shape and length, and a poplar core with triaxial fiberglass and carbon fiber for a fun, poppy feel.

Romp 86 Skis

The newest addition to the Romp stock skis; The 86. 

“We love providing a personalized custom experience for those who want it,” said Caleb Weinberg, co-founder of Romp, “but now our customers can easily order a pair of skis online and have them within just a few days.”

The newest addition to Romp’s 2020 lineup is a bit of a deviation for the brand—the 86, an all-mountain ski designed in collaboration with longtime Crested Butte ski instructor and PSIA Rocky Mountain Trainer Brandon Snyder. Designed for early season conditions or the days between storms, this ski is meant to be just as at home ripping down groomers as crusty off-piste terrain.

Whatever type of terrain or snow you ski, Romp now offers a wide variety of both custom and stock ski options that should fit the bill.
