Grown skis are high tech with a warm look and a natural feeling- the OutGrown model delivers allmountain performance for Alpine downhill, Freeriding, Tour, and Telemark: wide powder base, even flex with a sweet spot, high torsion for edge hold.
Trusted by professionals
Grown skis are skied by professional guides and scientists since 2007.

High tech and super tough Grown skis are high tech constructions that deliver their unique allmountain performance over years of extreme use-tested tough in the Arctic: - Sandwich woodcore construction: beech hardwood guarantees for strongest binding screws resistance and long lasting responsiveness and agility of the skis - Triaxial sandwich belts from 100% volcanic basalt fibres deliver exceptionally high torsional rigidity and better dampening in high speeds than conventional glas or carbon fibre - Side walls from extremely tough and water resistant European Robinia wood
Female skiers love the new OutGrown in 170cm and 96mm width at the waist - even flex, responsive, agile, light for its size - and beautiful.
Pioneering eco-design Grown skis are the most eco-efficient skis on the market. Our success started in 2008, winning the first ISPO eco design award, pionering eco perfomance and transparency of our products:
- first skis without glass and carbon fibres: we use 100% volcanic basalt fibres - wood core, wooden top sheets and side walls from European sustainable managed forests - no plastic top sheet and side walls - recycled transparent ski bases and glue based on biological components in the testing phase - first skis with a complete life cycle assessment - first company communicating the carbon footprint per volume unit ski: 9.43g/ccm, which is at least 30% lower than comparable high quality skis made as well in Europe

Inspired by skiers The design of the G from Grown is inspired by two ski turns in the powder snow - elegant, fluent, and sportive.
Handcraft and computer technology A computer controlled cutter (CNC) very precisely cuts out the letters GROWN from the cerry veneer, and by hand they are replaced with CNC cutted letters from dark walnut veneer, creating a contrasting inlay.
Tough sidewalls The Grown skis sidewalls are engineered from Robinia wood - the most waterproof and tough wood we have in Europe, and in addition soaked in natural oils.
Transparency The extremely hard transparent base makes the lower cherry wood veneer visible. The oval hole in the veneer shows the unique triaxial 100% basalt fibres belt, together with the upper belt sandwiching the wooden core.
