Paradise is committed to preserving the beautiful natural landscapes we ride in and enjoy. We've dedicated ourselves to using sustainable materials in our equipment and planting a tree for every item purchased.
Paradise will plant a tree for every item purchased through the website. No exceptions. We work with One Tree Planted, an environmental charity dedicated to making it easier for individuals and businesses to give back to the environment. One Tree Planted works to create a healthier climate, protect biodiversity and help global reforestation efforts.
Since 2014, One Tree Planted has planted over 40 million trees worldwide, including 23.5 million in 2021 alone! Although Paradise Skis is a Canadian company, One Tree Planted works globally, planting trees in North America, Latin America, Africa, Asia, Europe, and the Pacific!

We build cores with materials that make sense for the environment:
Paulownia is one of the fastest-growing trees, capable of over seven feet of growth per year as a seedling. One of the few commercial trees capable of self-regeneration, paulownia can grow back in roughly eight years.
Bamboo is one of the most unique plants on the planet, growing up to three feet per day at full width! Cutting bamboo also doesn't kill the plant, making it extremely sustainable.
Poplar is the only real hardwood in our skis and boards. Poplar works well because it's one of the fastest-growing and most sustainable hardwoods available, giving great performance while minimizing environmental impact.
Trees help clean the air we breathe, filter the water we drink, and provide habitat to over 80% of the world's terrestrial biodiversity. Forests provide jobs to over 1.6 billion people, absorb harmful carbon from the atmosphere and are key ingredients in 25% of all medicines. Without healthy forests, there would be no alpine sports.
