Venture Snowboards -- Colorado

Photograph By venturesnowboards.com

Venture is an independent snowboard company owned and run by a husband-and-wife team based in one of the meccas of backcountry terrain in the Lower 48: Silverton, Colo. Every snowboard, splitboard and powsurfer is built from scratch in a wind-powered factory using sustainably-grown and harvested wood. As a bonus, legendary big-mountain freeriding pioneer Johan Olofsson consults on and tests many of Venture's board designs.
