Venture Snowboards 2012-2013

13 Mar, 2012

Deep in the rugged Rocky Mountains near a little town called Silverton, Venture builds and designs snowboards for the mountains that surround them. Their operations use 100% windpower and take pride in the fact that they are built in the US and use Forest Stewardship Council certified hardwoods to make their cores. They build boards meant for mountain performance.

For 2013, Venture continues with their rocker technology, flat between the bindings with a mellow uplift on the tip and tail. Their rockered shapes offer increased maneuverability and floatation without sacrificing stability or edge hold. They offer multiple widths because one size doesn’t fit all and with four waist widths everyone has something that works for them. Returning for 2013 is the Euphoria powder surfer snowboard.

Venture Euphoria

After a two year hiatus, the Euphoria makes its triumphant return for 2012/2013. With the help of pow surfing pioneer Johan Olofsson, this board has undergone a complete overhaul and is the ideal choice for the deepest of days. In its latest incarnation, the Euphoria boasts rocker, reverse sidecut and a swallowtail. A full insert pack allows it to be ridden with traditional bindings, through it is designed to excel when surfed bindingless. The Euphoria will be offered in both solid and split, and in three different lengths.

Sizes: 156, 162, 168

Venture Odin (Johan Olofsson Signature Model)

A big mountain quiver of one, the Odin is the result of a close collaboration between legendary big mountain rider Johan Olofsson and Venture’s founder and design engineer, Klemens Branner. Tailored to Olofsson’s riding style and preferred terrain, the Odin combines all mountain versatility with powder specific features for optimal performance across a range of big mountain conditions. The Odin returns for a second season with a new blunt nose shape and a broader range of size options, both solid and split.

Sizes: 159, 160, 164, 168, 165, 169, 173, 174

Venture Zephyr

Designed for all mountain versatility, the Zephyr is a quiver killer in the truest sense of the word. It transitions effortlessly between varied terrain, conditions and riding styles, and makes the entire mountain your playground. High speed carves, gravity defying jibs, bottomless pow turns, you name it. This award winning design is the flagship of the Venture line. Solid and split versions available.

Sizes: 150, 154, 155, 159, 163, 160, 164, 168, 165, 169

Venture Storm

Developed in conjunction with Silverton Mountain, this deck craves big lines and burly terrain. Chatter proof when bombing open steeps, but agile enough to navigate tight trees and narrow chutes without flinching. Moderate taper and a softer nose provide float for untouched powder fields, while a stiffer midsection and tail lend stability and control in unpredictable big mountain conditions. Now with a slightly rounded nose shape, this deck is truly dialed for whatever the mountain throws your way. Solid and split versions available.

Sizes: 152, 156, 157, 161, 165, 162, 166, 170, 171, 181

Venture Helix

As the world’s first twin tipped, rockered splitty, the Helix has revolutionized backcountry riding. The ideal choice for riders who push the limits both frontcountry and back, it’s true twin shape offers the benefits of a freestyle deck while bomber construction and aggressive flex bring increased stability, energetic turns and solid landings. Available solid and split.

Sizes: 158, 162, 163, 167
