Where do we come from

Mountain guides and ski instructors, Rip’nWud was created in Chamonix, year 1997 and set an objective more then 20 years ago to design the first handmade wooden eco skis for our clients with great success and since then never looked back.

When the sport of skiing was beginning to explode in population exploited by the industry by producing plastic skis at the beginning of the 90’s, our adventure began. Rip’nWud was created to take a different path then the industry and share this adventure with our clients.

We set out to propose to the skiing public in Chamonix France to ride and to experience a different sensation and sound on the mountain with eco friendly long lasting handmade wooden skis.
