To make a ski, firstly cut the fibreglass or carbon fibre material with precision lasers into the hydrodynamic shape. After that, shape is achieved and any rough edges are smoothed over with a sander. The skis should then be coated with a lacquer finish to prevent water damage, and rubber foot bindings are attached. Finally, paint and decorate in different colours and design schemes.
Skis originally were made out of solid wood until in the early 1990s. Today, wood and foam are the two main materials used for the core of a ski.
