At TrickAir, we are passionate about aviation and outdoor adventure and proud to provide high-tech, high-performance aircraft snow skis that open your world of exploration. We are a small, family-owned company based in Forest Lake, Minnesota, ideally situated between the urban Twin Cities of Minneapolis/St. Paul and the northern lakes country for which Minnesota is known. It’s the perfect snowy playground for testing our skis.

We proudly design and manufacture TrickAir products in the United States from the best materials available. Ease of use is in the forefront of our minds when designing products so you can spend more time in the air and on the snow—and less time in the hangar.

TRICKAIR HISTORY

TrickAir Skis started in 2003 as the brainchild of Rick Discher, an enthusiastic pilot and owner of a fiberglass manufacturing business in the northern resort town of Weyauwega, Wisconsin. Rick dreamed of designing a better ski for his Maule M-4, and by 2005 was selling the first TrickAir product.
Rick learned how to ski fly in a friend’s Cessna 140 equipped with straight skis. “After attending several ski fly-ins and noticing different styles, I started looking for a pair for my Maule M-4,” said Rick. “Sandy, my wife, agreed that a wheel-penetration ski would be the type to get. She wasn’t fond of pushing the airplane in and out of the hanger on skis, not to mention the occasional snow bank when flying with just wheels in the winter.”
