Youth Enrichment Services (YES) was recently selected by Parlor Skis as the benefiting charity for custom designed skis. Local artist, Joe Wardell, created these skis with YES in mind, and they are currently being sold at Parlor Skis.
Joe’s work contains a lot of text and landscape imagery. The design of the skis includes the words “YES OUI SI” along the length of the ski, with more text and a landscape backdrop. The skis are being manufactured and sold in a variety of lengths and models.
A portion of all sales on these skis are directly benefiting YES youth programs. Click here to learn more.
