There are skis and then there’s Switzerland’s Disentis-based ski-maker Zai, which creates the most innovative blades on the planet. Each prized pair combines wood with unusual materials such as gneiss stone, carbon composites, felt and Zai’s famous “bent” stone cores. Zai made a prestigious pair of limited edition skis for Bentley (to complement the Bentley Flying Spur model) and will custom-make skis for clients. Piste aficionados can stop by, tour the workshop and enjoy gourmet dinners with CEO Benedikt Germanier. There’s even a newly launched concierge service whereby Zai will deliver customised skis to your destination. So get thee to the slopes and let Zai take care of the rest.
