West Mountain R&D Lab

A small army of board-builders, craftsmen, riders, journeymen, and volunteers have amassed behind Winterstick to lay the foundation for our journey ahead. Stepping into our 45th year we are staying true to snowboarding’s original heritage while also innovating and optimizing for the 21st century.

Snow is different everywhere—riders no less so, and coupled with the fact that you never step on the same mountain twice, the dream team here at Winterstick will continuously conjure up new shapes, designs and compositions with different locales and riders in mind. Collaborating with both retail embassies and influential riders, our new boards will speak Winterstick in your local language and snow conditions—a custom board for your mountain.

From our home base in Carrabassett Valley, Maine; Seth,Tom,
Dan and the Winterstick family will be researching, designing and developing new shapes and materials in the only factory in the world with a chairlift right out the back door.

Vision. Design. Craftsmanship. Welcome to the family.
