Couldn't find any info on the web other than the motionskis.com website (which is really just a single page) ... they must be pretty new. Bit of a gamble.
It's an 85 mm all-mountain ski ... could be good for east or west coast.

If you need any two planks to get you down the hill then these will do I guess. I checked out their website and they seem to have an old school approach on making skis. There are many materials in modern skis that help make them ride better but these guys pride themselves on a simple wood core.

Virtually all skis are still made with a wood core. Those without a wood-core are generally doing so to try to save money (wood is expensive).

Here are some links to Canadian ski makers. almost all are over 1K and all are wood cored.

I would take a wood core over any other material core any day. I am not in the market for a new pair. Canadian made skis are pretty niche, sort after and expensive, (Racoon skis etc....) and I would give this a try for $400 with bindings if they are not too soft.

Modern skis ride better (mostly easier) because of the parabolic shape, not so much high tech materials. Tyrolia PR 11 goes for $150'ish, so about $200 for the skis alone

I think he meant other stuff like metal layer for torsional rigidity.

Do you still use a wood hockey stick? ;) I'm joking, I know it's not the same thing.

Modern skis ride better because of a combination of shape and materials. All skis as far as I know have a wood core. But they combine other materials for a better ride.

I have a custom snowboard made by Prior (Canadian Ski and Snowboard manufacturer out of BC) and along with the wood core there is also titanal (metal), carbon fiber and rubber. There is no way this snowboard would perform nearly as well if it only contained wood and fiberglass even with it's modern shape. Not even close.

I have a pair of Palmer P02 skis that also include titanal, carbon fiber and probably rubber and maybe some other materials. I paid $280 US for these skis and they are the best skis I have ever owned.
