Rocky Mountain Underground Skis Invests in Factory Ownership

Breckenridge, CO (April 7, 2015) –Rocky Mountain Underground, manufacturer and innovators of award winning, hand made skis, recently completed an investment into a Colorado-based manufacturing facility. Rocky Mountain Underground (RMU) is committed to keeping their products at the highest level of US-based manufacturing and the benchmark for top-quality ski-focused gear. 

The current facility is based down-valley from Aspen, CO, but will be locating to a larger facility to accommodate the need for manufacturing growth.

“Being committed to our process, quality, R&D and improved product and processes, we are glad to be part owner in our manufacturing from concept to production,” says Mike Waesche, Founder of RMU. “One of our goals is to provide year-round employment opportunities, improved service and shipping and some increased revenue. All said, it’s a better way to do business.”
