Company Highlight: Allred Custom Skiworks
This Ski Season TAKE FIVE has been working with Allred Custom Ski Works to put together a sweet collaboration for our skiing seltzer fans! TAKE FIVE is always on the lookout for other companies that are creating something cool, and we’re so excited to be working with this incredible small business. Allred Custom Skiworks is an amazing, sustainable ski shop located in the Wasatch Mountains in Utah. Their skis are handcrafted and made from the wood of trees that fell due to natural causes. Allred also works to be at the forefront of safety and impact-absorbing technology for their skis, all but guaranteeing a smooth ride no matter your skill level or wherever you like to go ski.
The company’s founder, Chad Allred, is also a licensed physical therapist who uses his expertise to take your specific body’s needs into consideration when crafting the custom skis you’ve ordered. Skiing is hard, so it’s great to have someone personally making sure you’ll be as comfortable as possible on your trip instead of having to put up with junky rental skis every time. Along with their amazing custom options, they also have a limited collection of premade skis in some great colors that are still crafted with the same love and attention to detail as their customs.We at TAKE FIVE love what Allred is doing so much because we also care about what goes into the product that has our name on it. We’re not packaging anything that we aren’t incredibly proud of, that we don’t think is worth having in the world, and of course that we wouldn’t drink ourselves! We admire how open Allred is being about the process of putting their skis together, and we’re also trying to be transparent about the choices we’re making to be sure that TAKE FIVE is crafted in a sustainable fashion.
If you’re super excited about Allred after reading this blog, keep an eye on our TAKE FIVE Instagram Account, because we’ll be announcing an incredible giveaway in partnership with them that you’ll be able to participate in!
