Inspiring New Skiers to Fall in Love, Right from the Start

SkiRing Receives U.S. Patent

Already in use at over 30 ski school programs, 1,500 SkiRings™ are now on the slopes. Innovative, lightweight and durable construction allow SkiRings™ to help first-timers and beginners to center their weight over their skis, while easily positioning their hands forward. Ski poles – often left behind – are awkward for young and beginning skiers. Using the more intuitive SkiRing™ correctly places idle hands and keeps the energy focused downhill. The SkiRing™ naturally prepares the introduction of ski poles once a certain level of safety and comfort are achieved.

“I love teaching skiing. My favorite moment during the lesson is when the student has a breakthrough and the look on their face that shows they get it,” said Monica Schwanitz, veteran ski instructor and owner of Lost Mitten, LLC. “My motivation for creating the SkiRing™ was to have more of those moments more often and to create lifelong enthusiasts by helping them to ski better and fall in love right from the start.”

SkiRings™ are made in the U.S.A. Schwanitz utilized Mesick Mold Company, in Mesick, MI to build the mold, and Spencer Plastics Inc. in Cadillac, MI to manufacture them. Visit www.Ski-Ring.com or call 248-701-6056 for more information.

Across the U.S. and Canada, individual ski instructors, race teams and ski school programs are using SkiRings™ as a learning tool. In Michigan, those include Pine Knob Ski & Snowboard School (Clarkston), Mt. Holly Ski & Snowboard School (Holly), and Crystal Mountain Ski Resort (Thompsonville). The ski season may be ending in the Midwest; however, the future of the SkiRing™ is just getting started.
