DPS is a ski brand founded in 2005 by skier Stephan Drake and engineer Peter Turner. Their goal: to develop the ultimate ski for total satisfaction on snow!
In 2005, DPS was founded by partners Stephan Drake, a forward-thinking ski visionary, and veteran ski engineer Peter Turner. Both were inspired by the idea of fusing Design + Roots + Engineering to make perfect skis worthy of those who live and breathe the sport.
DPS is responsible for the world’s first and only pure pre-pregnated carbon fiber sandwich ski, the first 120mm-waisted powder pintail, the first rockered ski with sidecut, the Spoon – a convex three-dimensional shoveled ski with radical edge bevel, and PHANTOM, a paradigm-shifting permanent, one-time application base treatment that provides increased glide across all snow conditions for skis and snowboards.
DPS’ global headquarters is located at the base of the Wasatch Mountains in Salt Lake City, Utah, USA. Within its adjoining state-of-the-art ski factory, space age carbon technology is fused with groundbreaking shapes to create the world’s most advanced skis. Its products are sold on five continents, and it is the trusted brand of choice for serious skiers worldwide.
