Factory & Showroom Now Open

We're now officially open for business in our new hometown of Silverton, Colorado. Where better to locate a grassroots snowboard company?

Situated at 9,318 feet above sea level, Silverton is surrounded by the rugged peaks of the San Juan Mountains - Colorado’s largest mountain group. Outside of Alaska, no other mountain range in the U.S. has a higher average elevation. The town of Silverton is also home to the extreme ski area, Silverton Mountain, and its expert only terrain. Combined with the nearly limitless backcountry opportunities, it will serve as an ideal proving ground for our boards.

If you find yourself in our neck of the woods, come on by for a visit. We're located at 951 Greene Street, right next to the laundromat.

Zephyr Named "Most Valuable Product"

We're stoked to announce that our flagship board, the all-mountain Zephyr, has once again been named a Most Valuable Product by Future Snowboarding Magazine.

Future’s 2008 product review included more than 130 boards from 40 manufacturers. The focus of the test was on all-mountain boards – boards that excel regardless of terrain, conditions, or riding style. After being waxed, detuned and covered with a special decal to ensure anonymity, the boards underwent two weeks of rigorous testing at Northstar-at-Tahoe. Only 40 boards emerged with top honors and the prestigious FSMVP rating.

After being put through its paces, Venture’s Zephyr 151 Narrow has again landed in the top ten of the Women's Premium category, taking sixth place for boards in the $400 - $550 price range. Check out the News page on our website to read the review.
