The « Tempête » is the first model at R&D. Whether for back-country or the slopes, it’s the perfect ski for Quebec snowstorms. It’s wider than a conventional touring ski, but slimmer than skis designed for the powder of snowstorms of western Canada. Shorter and more agile, it’s the perfect ski for snow days here at home!

Design "Nord-Est" by Francis St-Onge.

INNOVATION

Our director of development has been testing skis, taking ski apart to discover their secrets and fiddling with skis in his workshop for 10 years… but that’s not that’s not all! Hold on to your ski poles, R&D Skis is your lab of skientifics that always push the ultimate ski experience further!

FROM QUEBEC

In Quebec, we’re really crafty! In Quebec, we have plenty of wood. In Quebec, our culture is important. Mix that together and you get a ski company that’s more than proud to be from Quebec. Did we say we were proud of being from Quebec?

DESIGN

We have an artistic side and that’s why we like to showcase local artists in the design of our skis. Each year, new designs and new artists: the idea is to ski with masterpieces on your feet. Collect all our designs!
