How do you say ON3P?

What does ON3P stand for?
Founder Scott Andrus starting working on ON3P as a sophomore at the University of Puget Sound.  The idea was born at his house located at N. 13th and Proctor in Tacoma, WA.  The name came from one-three-proctor with the (e) on the one removed:  ON3P.  Yes, we know it’s confusing.  When the ski building idea was born, ON3P was just about building skis for friends, rather than being a full-fledged company.

No.  Due to liability, and variations in boot sole length and wear, we are not comfortable mounting bindings for you.  We suggest entrusting the skis to the best shop in your area.  While you’re there, let them know to bring ON3P in so you can buy our skis directly from them.

SKIS 
How does ON3P measure our skis?
ON3P measures our skis using a post-pressing tip-to-tail length.  Most brands measure a pre-pressing flat base length, which loses length when the ski is pressed.  As such, ON3P skis will run comparitively longer than most brands.  To us, it just means our ski sizing runs true to size.  
How do I drill my skis?
ON3P recommends a 3.6mm x 9mm drill bit when mounting all models of ON3P skis.
What are the edge bevel for ON3P skis?
All ON3P skis leave our factory with a 1-degree base & 1-degree side bevel.
Where do I mount my skis?
Every ON3P has a boot center notch on the left sidewall of the ski.  This is our recommended mounting point.  While you are welcomed to mount however you like, the location is the designed and recommended mounting location by ON3P.
