Custom Ski Manufacturing
Salt Lake City, UT

Founded in 2009, Salt Lake City based Wubanger LLC is a custom and semi-custom manufacturer of high end snow skis. For the more avid skiers who ski daily or at least, frequently, an off the shelf ski will not provide the desired skiing experience. Avid skiers require skis that are designed for them based on the type of skiing that they do, how hard they ski, their size and weight and other factors. For that reason, Wubanger designs and builds skis that provide customers with the design, size, flex and other elements that are important to each individual skier. Customer demand has made it necessary for the company to move to a larger manufacturing facility in Salt Lake City. “We are experts in skiing and in ski production, not in business planning,” said Nick Wheeler, one of the company’s principals. “The Cayenne team took our vision and created a business plan that we are proud of and that will help us achieve all of our goals. The new facility will enable us to increase our production by 10 fold over the coming 4-5 years.”
