What is the Factory Direct Demo Program?
For nearly a decade, DPS has successfully fitted thousands of skiers over the Internet and by phone. It’s an easy way to buy skis. We guarantee the outcome through our Factory Direct Demo Program. In sum, once you receive your skis, ski them for three days within a fourteen-day period, and if they aren’t the best skis you have ever tried since Howard Head glued metal onto a wood core, you can send them back for a full refund minus shipping both ways. Unfortunately, this program is only available to North American customers at this time. You may also visit one of our Dealers to try a pair.
Do you sell DPS skis at dealers?
Yes. Besides selling direct on dpsskis.com, we have a thriving network of the world’s best dealers. From 2005-2008, DPS skis were only available for purchase on dpsskis.com. In 2009, DPS launched a dealer network for what we believe are the world’s finest ski shop. To find a dealer near you, see our Dealer Directory. If you are a retail store interested in becoming a DPS dealer, please contact DPS’ Retail Manager, Marshal Olson.
Why do you sell skis on dpsskis.com in addition to your dealers?
DPS was founded as a design-based, grassroots company to build the perfect ski. We see the ski, skier, and ski builder in an intimately connected triangle. By selling direct via dpsskis.com we maintain that tight knit relationship with dedicated skiers around the globe. DPS customers are among the best skiers in the world, and are technically savvy folks with an obsession for trick skis. The roots and ethos of the brand have always been relationship based, with the mandate to provide the right tools for the best skiers. Selling direct fosters this connection.
