The world's newest ski, The Anton Glider, will be making its debut this year...first in Bozeman...around North America...and maybe even the world! Assembled in Bozeman, MT by Summit Corporate Services, the parabolic ski mounted with what, at first glance, looks like a compound bow minus its sight, is the brainchild of Anton Wilson, CEO of Anton Dynamics, Inc.
Built from the assembly of more than 12 pieces of ski equipment from near and far, the $3,390 apparatus probably won't be ubiquitous until prices drop, but Wilson believes he's "invented what the shaped ski should have been."
Wilson's is a ski that strives to assist a skier to constantly position weight on the tips of the skis, the physics involved in most easily initiating turns; center of gravity should be less of an issue with these skis. "It's the right device for groomed snow," Wilson says.
The Anton website states, "The Anton Gliders are NOT designed to float in powder, and should not be considered for off-piste, back-country, or spring slush."
Groomed skiing may never be the same. What better place to try out this revolutionary ski, the Anton Glider, than the snowy slopes of southwest Montana's mountains?
