According to Arc Advisory Group, workers in about 20 factories, located in the United States, Australia, Canada, China, Canada, Tunisia, Poland, Czech Republic, France, and Spain, make skis. Except for some boutique skis used for particular purposes, even if you find different brand names on the skis, often those made by the same parent company are identical. Another tip for saving money is to buy last year’s model because you will often find that only the printing design has been changed. Yet, you can find these skis at up to 50 % off. 
All skis fall into one of three categories. Many skis are made of wood. Some are made of one layer of wood, but most of them are made of multiple layers that are pressed together. Wood is an ideal choice for skis because they recover to their original shape overnight. You can also find torsion-box skis, where a wood core is wrapped in layers of fiberglass. At the bottom end of the price range, you can find skis where polyurethane is injected into a shell. 
The process of making skis starts with laying the different layers on top of each other. Then, the pile is sent to a special machine where the ski shape is cut and pressed into the materials. Next, the ski goes to be printed. Usually, a dye-sublimation process is used. 
There are approximately 3.25 million pairs of skis made in the world annually. The mean wholesale selling price for these skis is $325, but you can expect to pay about $975 for new skis.
