Meet Bode Miller
Ski Designer.

The world knows him as the winningest alpine skier in U.S. history. But here at Peak, Bode is our Director of Innovation. He’s always been that way. At 17, Bode took a bandsaw to a race snowboard—and helped usher in modern sidecut to skiing.

Later, Bode forced himself into European race rooms, tweaking sidecuts, adjusting flexes, and building winning skis by hand. Today, Bode can detect what’s wrong with a prototype just by watching a skier arc.

Peak is Bode’s laboratory.

KeyHole Technology™

KeyHole Technology™ was born from jury-rigging. A ski builder during Bode’s World Cup days cut through a metal laminate to affix a pair of damping plates to some GS skis. That cutaway created an inflection point in the flex that allowed for forgiving turn entry and powerful edging from the void back. Bode immediately recognized the advantage—and won the GS Crystal Globe on ’em.

We incorporate a similar cutaway into every Peak ski. We call it KeyHole Technology™. It unlocks a ski’s potential. And it will unlock your potential too.

About Peak

Standing behind Bode at our Bozeman R&D center you'll find a team of passionate skiers with some strong beliefs...

We believe in product over marketing. We believe in American innovation. We believe listening to skiers is more important than listening to middlemen. We believe in phone calls not bots. We believe grit trumps mission statements. We believe in standing up after a fall.

We believe in powder mornings and groomer laps; big backcountry lines and magic carpets; welcoming newcomers but honoring our elders, and never forgetting that as much as it consumes our lives, it’s just skiing. Whoop it up.

Testing, Testing, Testing.

The downfall of most small brands? Confirmation bias: interpreting evidence as corroboration of preset beliefs. Because any skier can adapt to even the worst pair of skis, confirmation bias is a trap.

It’s our goal for every Peak model to outperform the top skis on the market. To do that, we test them against the best of the rest—repeatedly—from phase one prototypes, to early production, to the final skis we send you.

“Ski design can only happen holistically. If you alter rocker, you alter turn initiation, which means you must adjust flex and torsion. These details matter. My name is on the skis.”

—Bode Miller Cofounder, Peak Skis.

“It can take a decade for a new company to produce a ski that merits coverage, let alone podium in a category. In year one, Peak produced six podium contenders. I’ve never seen anything like it.”

—David Currier Ski Test Director (Skiing), Olympian.

“I’ve been testing skis for 22 years. In the past decade, skis have nearly been homogenized. But Peak skis perform like nothing on the market. The KeyHole™ changes everything.”

—Marc Peruzzi Test Director (Skiing, Mountain, Outside, 1999–2021); VP of Product, Peak Skis.
