Foon Skis

Posted in source on May 20th, 2010 by admin

My friend Johnny “Foon” Chilton has started to make wooden skis.  Johnny is

a very accomplished mountain athlete.  He has many first descents on local  mountains in the coast range.  Johnny has also worked as a cabinetmaker.  His knowledge of wood and skiing seemed like a good fit.  Three pairs made and all of the reviews are glowing.  Look for his skis on the mountains in the Whistler/ Pemberton area. Any questions or comments about “Foon Skis” can be directed to.  j.foon@telus.net

Being a carpenter has its privileges.  Working on the Rendezvous lodge on Blackcomb mountain last month,  I was able to reclaim some cedar siding and support beams bound for the dump.

All the hollow wood surfboards we make here at Lambrecht Surfboards in Pemberton BC  are built with reclaimed wood.  This wood is earmarked for a 6′ 5″ fish  for my friend Dan. More updates to follow.
