                      We pressed two skis side by side using a blank canvas as the topsheet. This "canvas block" was given to artist Scramble Campbell who painted the ski canvas during the 2012 Telluride Blues and Brews festival. The canvas block was then returned to the Wagner Custom factory and transformed into a one-of-a-kind set of powder skis.
