Peter grew up in Sausalito, California. He studied ceramics in the University of San Francisco. At twenty he travelled to Europe and settled in Paris where he worked in different artistic fields (ceramics, photography, mosaics) before becoming passionate about wood. He specialized in furniture making. Due to his enthusiasm and his fascination for wood he quickly gained a great experience in design and furniture building. But his passion for mountains and skiing continued growing. That’s how after twenty years of furniture making in the
Montreuil workshop he started making skis. Today Peter works in Les Praz de Chamonix, Mont Blanc. Here he makes his skis which join beauty, tradition and performance.
Anati was born in Oslo and grew up in Florence, Italy. She met Peter in Montreuil where Rabbit on the Roof was born. She carries out certain meticulous steps of our production: fitting of the ski edges, assemblage of our wood mosaics, and takes care of the administrative side of Rabbit on the Roof. Like the beautiful Ash of our skis core, she is an integral part of the Rabbit on the Roof spirit.
They are part of our history.

Master craftsman in ski base preparation and finishing for racing and freeride, Lolo made me understand the importance of hand finished bases, as well as the care brought to each element of the sliding surface. The generosity with which he shares his knowledge has helped me to evolve enormously and allows me today to be able to do every pair of skis from A to Z. Thank you Lolo!

Nicolas is a lumberjack, landscaper, builder and handyman. A Normand long since imported into Chamonix, he has been able to find us the top quality wood from the valley that we needed. He brings it to us as logs that I then saw here in the workshop with our amazing band saw.
Jean Claude is the former director of the Flégère ski resort, now part of Chamonix-Mont Blanc. As an engineer, he offers moral and technical support in all the electro-mechanical complications.
Naming every person that brings us support and enthusiasm would make a list too long for our site, but we thank everyone that believes in us and in our production of hand made wooden skis.
