Reinholt’s nearly all-wood skis are as functional as they are beautiful, according to skiers who have tested them. Lucid makes three types of skis in various lengths: One is designed for natural snow, one for groomed trails and the third for back-country adventuring.

During a recent outing on the slopes of Saddleback, the skis fetched accolades from other skiers who were fast to comment on the non-flashy design and all-natural look. Maine has a long history of woodworkers making wooden skis and Reinholt is doing his part to bring the tradition back.

He works with sustainably grown and harvested exotics as well as some domestic hardwoods, and as can be seen in the grain and texture of his work, puts an enormous amount of effort nto hand-selecting the woods he uses. The brand focuses on skis that work well in the kinds of widely variable conditions seen in New England, Reinholt said.
