Italian ski maker Foil has just released a pair of handcrafted skis, the Oro Nero Classico, with a ridiculous $60,000 price tag.

Foil is an Italian ski maker that specializes in rare, unusual, and often precious materials, think rosewood and purpleheart top sheets, bamboo sidewalls, and metal-plated bindings. Its aim is “to create a ski of World Cup performance, in perfect balance with the body, in harmony with nature, and one that aesthetically celebrates the timeless beauty of skiing” reports outsideonline.com.

Prices for its planks range from $20,000 to $60,000. The most expensive in the lineup, the limited-edition Oro Nero, features a top sheet of 8,000-year-old certified bog oak and bindings plated in 14-karat gold. The skis also come with gold-plated poles and a custom leather ski bag.

The company’s head designer is a former Austrian World Cup ski racer, so maybe it’s not just a fashion statement, but for the price of a luxury car, they’re going to have to give some serious performance improvements!
