In case Hublot’s sledge doesn’t strike your winter sport fancy, consider Audi’s Carbon Ski Concept a potential alternative. Created in collaboration with Head, Audi’s Munich based concept design team has developed a pair of skis built around a wood core sandwiched between aluminum and titanium and coated in carbon fiber. The result is a more rigid, yet more flexible design than your average pair of terra firma skis. The carbon fiber finish lends to some seriously beautiful planks, too. Like the Audi E-Tron, the skis are only concepts for now… but that doesn’t mean you can’t dream of bombing Grand Couloir on them.
