I dropped into the opening party for another new business here in Hakuba yesterday. Liberty Skis from Colorado have opened up their Japanese distributorship on the Olympic road.
Liberty was founded in 2003 in Avon, Colorado. Liberty creates unique freeride skis based on rider input and a commitment to functional innovation. Every detail is designed to enhance rider experience from backcountry to the park. All Liberty skis feature our laminated bamboo core as well as custom edges, UHMW and bamboo sidewalls, sintered P-Tex 2000 and 4000 Electra bases, multi-radius sidecuts, cab-forward stance, and many features specific to each model like elongated tips and tails on the powder skis, or fully centered flex on park models. In addition, every Liberty is backed by the industry leading 3 year warranty.
It’s great to see the growth of the sport and to see Hakuba at the forefront of the Japanese ski industry. Thanks for a great afternoon. Joe and Tomiko will do well, I am sure.
