It's finally time to hit the slopes Fresh powder's given riders high hopes Grab your bamboo board and hit the road Even your snow gear follows the green code.
Get on Board
If you're in the market for some new gear this winter season check out bamboo snowboards. Made from the most renewably sustainable material, bamboo boards not only help reduce your carbon footprint, but also look like works of art.
In addition to being eco-friendly, bamboo boards also have a few extra perks when you hit the snow. Because of the way bamboo is structured, snowboard designers are able to make boards from lighter glasses and thinner cores, which create lighter boards with a better pop/return, without compromising the durability of the board.
By using lighter glasses in bamboo-reinforced boards, designers are able to greatly lower their dependency on chemically treated fiberglass, as well as the use of petroleum-based resin.
