Preserving the History of Snow Surfing

Many efforts to slide sideways down a mountain have existed longer than we know and have helped shape Snowboarding into what it is today. Winterstick is one of those efforts and a true pioneer of the backcountry. Our goal is to celebrate, preserve, and share its history and legacy.

The Goal

Since 2003, the goal of this site was to help uncover and document some of the brand's lost history. At the time, the stories were mostly myth and lore. But with the help of many enthusiasts and original riders, we've been able to create a platform to help document the contributions of the original Winterstick company and crew, and give the recognition they deserve as pioneers of the sport.
