Skiing in the core of the woods may be dangerous but having skis which have a wood core is certainly much safer. Especially for the environment, once you don’t kill a wood to make them. The Rossignol Attraxion Echo 8 uses fewer petroleum-based products and lacquers for a minimal effect on the environment. Natural linen fibers replace synthetic materials and the lightweight poplar wood core is harvested from sustainable wood that’s grown in renewable tree farms. Remember, trees don’t fall with these skis but they don’t guarantee you won’t fall either.
