The BNK (it stands for Big Nose Kate, a Doc Holliday associate) is directional twin with early rise in the tip and traditional camber elsewhere. It's a women's ski, with a thinner, softer-flexing profile than other Meiers (all of which are fairly soft-flexing). It's designed to be playful and forgiving, with a waist width appropriate for everyday Western conditions. All Meier skis are wood-core laminate constructions with metal reinforcement in the binding area. They're built using Colorado wood--aspen or blue-stain beetle-kill pine--see-through topsheets that highlight the wood, and eco-friendly Super Sap wood-based epoxy. Meier is located near Glenwood Springs, Colo., burial place of Doc Holliday, from whose legend many Meier ski names are taken.
