‘APRÈS-SKI’ TAKES ON NEW MEAN­ING

Whistler Traveller Magazine - - LOCAL VIBE - STORY BY RE­BECCA WOOD BAR­RETT

Where do old skis and snow­boards go to die? Are they buried in your garage? Dumped in the land­fill? Next time you re­tire your planks, show the moun­tains some en­viro-love and send them to Ski Heaven. Lo­cal en­tre­pre­neur Randi Kruse, owner of Ski Heaven, works with a team of Whistler artists to re-pur­pose dis­carded skis and snow­boards into unique, orig­i­nal art. “Skis will never de­com­pose be­cause the ma­te­ri­als are so densely man­u­fac­tured,” says Kruse. “Re­cy­cling isn’t pos­si­ble, so in­stead we ‘up­cy­cle’ and cre­ate some­thing en­tirely new from the skis.” Ski Heaven also gives you a chance to cel­e­brate pre­cious moun­tain mem­o­ries by bring­ing those sto­ries into your home. Sea­sons of glo­ri­ous turns can live again in a func­tional wine rack, snowflake wall art, moun­tain-themed coat rack, cus­tom art­work, cor­po­rate me­mento and much more. ski­heaven.ca
