Auction week for Telluride's Ah Haa School for the Arts

Auction week for Telluride's Ah Haa School for the Arts

Skiis copy Telluride's Ah Haa School for the Arts celebrates its 18th annual auction this week, on Friday, July 23. The theme is ARTopia.

The centerpiece of the auction evening, a happening that includes art, food, drinks and multi-media, is the live auction. In support, Telluride Inside… and Out plans to post images of the featured items every day this week, starting today, with Wagner Custom Skis with Original Bill Kreutzmann Artwork & Signature.

Bill Kreutzmann, the drummer who played with the Grateful Dead, has created an amazing new piece of his signature psychedelic digital artwork, which means the custom alpine skis from Wagner Custom are unique. Ski Magazine cited Wagner Custom as one of the 28 people, products and inventions that are revolutionizing skiing. Wagner skis are produced in a solar-powered off-the-grid factory outside of Telluride and represent the pinnacle of ski equipment in the 21st century.

The winner of this item gets a pair of skis hand-built to the terrain and personal ski style of their choosing, with a core of premium hardwood: maple and ash, an extra-thick base material and oversize edges to defend against rock damage. The best part: a custom top-sheet of Kreutzmann’s digital artwork, because style on the slopes is ALWAYS part of the equation.
Retail value: $3500.
