Profiling Bozeman-based Seneca Skis.
“It’s important that skiing survives.”
So says Eric Newman, 31-year-old owner and founder of Seneca Skis. Newman himself almost didn’t survive, coming up short on a 75-foot ski jump on the Freeskiing World Tour in 2007. After shaking off a triple-broken spine, broken neck, and broken sternum (and a doctor’s proclamation that he’d never ski again), Newman started handcrafting sustainable skis as Seneca Skis (and skiing again) in 2008.
