Michael Bellino

Michael Bellino started making Ski chairs in 1993 after purchasing a lake house that needed deck furniture. Looking for an alternative to plastic patio furniture, he found inspiration in O'Neils Bike and Ski Shop, which he managed. Two weeks and two prototypes later, he created the first Ski chair with his old racing and bump skis. Michael says he's still sitting in that original chair today!

Over the next few years he expanded the product offering using different types of sports equipment. Understanding the importance of recycling, Michael recycles all types of sports equipment, uses recycled plastic for bench legs and ships all of the larger products in recycled bicycle boxes. Currently, Michael and his team recycles over 20,000 pieces of sports equipment each year, which includes snow and water skis, wake and snow boards, hockey sticks, baseball bats and golf clubs. collection

      Comments about SNOW SKI CHAIR AND OTTOMAN:

      Got the log rocking chair version of this for a family member for his birthday. HE LOVES IT! It was really easy to put together, it's comfortable, it was made with his favorite skis, and he shows it to everyone that visits (and makes them sit in it to show how comfortable it is)! It's great that you can easily remove the rockers or disassemble the chair for transporting it if necessary. The skis were obviously used, but still in very nice condition.

      Service and delivery comments:

      The chair was delivered ~2 weeks after I placed the order (which I thought was very fast) and it arrived in an old bicycle box (nice that skichair.com cares about recycling more than just old skis).
