CALLING ALL CREATORS!

Have you got what it takes to breath new life into the mountain adventure?
Please get in touch, we would love to hear from you.

Ski Heaven is working with a host of local partners to collect old skis and snowboards. We’re always looking for artists and builders to help develop master creations, as well as a range of smaller merchandise pieces. We display, promote and retail the pieces at events, and through the online store. This is your opportunity to have your art discovered and protect the mountains you love.

Inquiries welcome: connect@skiheaven.ca
