MORE ABOUT THE EPISODE…
Josh sits down with Parlor co-founder Mark Wallace. Parlor is the largest ski manufacturer in New England. Parlor is New England’s largest ski manufacturer, building high quality, custom laminate construction skis (essentially a race skis) with an all mountain feel. Wallace has always been a long time skier, having raced in high school, college, and beyond however, it wasn’t after he hung up his racing career to go down a path of construction (restaurant construction, that is) that he would find himself being pulled back into the ski world. After talks with his co-founders Pete Endres and Jason Epstein it wasn’t long until he was convinced to jump in and they got to work. Interestingly enough, they chose Boston to set up shop. At first glance, you’d think being close to a mountain would be the optimal locale however, by being based in the city they have access to a lot of the customer base. Customers, who are looking for that piece of ski culture and don’t have the luxury of a mountain in their backyard. Being Boston based also offers a lot of resources that they wouldn’t have if they moved away from the city. Parlor proves that the love for skiing stays even after you travel away from the mountains.
