About

Why buy HG Skis and not another brand?

In one word, “quality.”

HG Skis was founded by two skiers who are engineers and share a common issue with the durability of skis. Year after year we bought other brands “Terrain Park” skis. We’ve all watch their company pros tearing up hand rails and other terrain park features in videos and advertisements.

We all use the ski for what they were advertised for, and come to find that the warranty is voided if there is any sign of impact damage. This just doesn’t sound fair, nor does it help skiing or its participants.

Read any major ski brand’s warranty and you’ll find these words in the “What is NOT covered” section:

“Any problem resulting from impact, misuse, abuse, or neglect. This includes but is not limited to boxes, rails, and rock damage.”

At HG Skis we have not only spent years developing and testing the industries toughest skis, we also have a “Warranty for Impact” to stand behind our products.

 

How many skis does a typical HG Skis team rider go through in a year?

2 pairs

Give this some thought.  If you’ve ever seen any of our videos, you know the type of skiing our team does. If not, you’re really missing out – but we can tell you this: they ski well over 100 days a year in almost exclusively urban environments. This include staircases, benches, concrete, steel, and yes occasionally some snow. Try doing that on your name brand skis.

 

I don’t ski terrain park or urban, so why should I care?

Do you ski trees? Do you ski in the fall and spring when the snow is a bit too thin? Do you care if the company who you buy skis from cares about you the day after you’ve bought their skis?

If you said yes to any of these questions, you should care about the quality and durability of your skis, and frankly, anything you own. We do.

History

General Information about HG Skis:

  • Based in Burlington, Vermont – handmade in Quebec
  • Earliest prototyping began in 2006, HG Skis officially established in VT as a brand in 2010.
  • Founded by two UVM Engineering ‘11 Grads (students at time of establishment)

 

HG Skis is a freestyle ski company based in Burlington, VT. While we’ve been building and designing skis since 2006, the company was officially established in 2010.

Skiing has taken to the street exposing equipment to concrete, stone, steel and other very hard surfaces. The team at HG Skis has first hand experience in this area. We’ve tested and destroyed more skis than you can imagine. We’ve learned a lot over the last few years, and we’ve packed all of it into our skis and other products.

Warranty

Thanks for your HG Skis purchase! HG Skis warranties are reserved for the original purchaser only.
Make sure to keep a copy of your original purchase receipt or invoice (Proof of Purchase), in the unlikely event that you need warranty service. If the original Proof of Purchase cannot be provided on
a warranty return, HG will use the manufacturing date as the start of the warranty period. Repaired or
replaced skis are covered for the remainder of the original warranty only. Any skis deemed to fall under warranty must be returned to HG Skis or destroyed in such a way which they cannot be used for skiing before a replacement pair is shipped. In the event that HG determines to replace skis but does not have replacement skis in stock to fulfill a valid warranty claim, the purchaser will be offered credit towards a similarly priced model.
