We will sell only 100 total raffle tickets, each priced at $25. The winner will be selected at our 80th annual VT Conference on Recreation on the evening of September 27th, 2023.

What you win:

  • A custom build workshop where you help build your very own skis with Silo Skis owner, Lars Whitman.
  • Collaborate with Silos Skis owner Lars Whitman by giving him your size specifications, ski type, ski terrain (All mountain, powder, etc) and custom top design ideas. Lars will then make your dream skis. For this option, shipping is not included.

More about Silo Skis:


At Silo Skis our goal is the craft outstanding skis, using our hands and few nifty tools, with safe, sustainable materials, in a safe sustainable environment. Silo Skis is a small operation, indeed, started by a guy in a small shop in Northern Vermont. When you call "us," you usually will in truth be speaking with the guy who designs, builds, shapes, and tunes your skis. He owns this outfit and his name is Lars.

Custom skis are built just for you. To build the best skis possible, we'll ask you about yourself and what you would like from your skis. We tweak everything to fit your skiing style and the hills you ride.

Our customers are our first priority and if you want a hand in building your skis we would love to share the experience with you. The spaces are limited and cost is $850.00USD. It takes roughly two days to build the skis to take home. This is very unique opportunity to be involved from the beginning to the end of a very cool project. You will be able to tell everyone that you helped to build the skis you are on! You will have to provide your own transportation to and from Burlington and make accommodations while you are here. If you are local to the area, we can also work out a weekly workshop time. Contact us and we will see what we can do!

Your graphics have to be finished and here before we are able to build your skis. There is some prep work that has to be done before hand in order to finish the skis while you are here.
