Venture Snowboards is based in Silverton, Colorado, an area known for its steep diverse backcountry terrain. Surrounded by mountains and the snow that they love to ride it’s the perfect place for a brand that’s not only dedicated to improving the quality and performance of its boards but minimizing the environmental impact and protecting their natural environment. Venture takes a different approach to snowboard development by only using essential components and cutting down waste. Venture believes when fitting a rider to a board, whether female or male, the factors are height, weight, boot size, and riding style. Each model comes in not only various lengths but waist widths as well. Its narrow boards come in a 24 inch waist, which is perfect for girls with smaller feet. Venture's all-mountain Zephyr comes in lengths ranging from 146 to 169 -- a great option range for the tall, skinny girls to get a nice big powder board but still have a narrow waist for smooth and easy turns! Venture keeps the graphic of the Zephyr simple and clean to reduce unnecessary waste but this board's wood core showing through overlapped with a simple snowflake and black detail is visually stunning. Top rated, it’s a great board for not only the eco-conscious consumer but any female rider who wants a quality high performance board made in the USA to hit up the slopes this winter.
