Ski-ya! was born out of love and necessity. We'd worked for many years in corporate marketing creating successful products for big companies. After surviving rounds of layoffs, it was our turn. We were chopped. After licking our wounds, we said, "Hey! This means we can do what we want to do, where we want to do it." So we sold our house and stuff and headed to Colorado. We figured if we were unemployed, it was better to be unemployed where we could ski.
Our Christmas card said, “Ski-ya!” (meaning “Adios”) and soon our friends started saying, “Ski-ya!”. Ski-ya! was catchy - we were on to something.
So, we trademarked Ski-ya! (®), created a cool logo that people liked and launched the brand at The Taste of Colorado festival. People smiled and couldn’t resist saying “Ski-ya!” out loud when they saw our little guy. Ski-ya! was a hit!
And now we offer the brand to you. We wish you deep powder, roaring fires and lots of laughter with friends and family wherever the snow takes you.
