Remember Corey Van Aken? Well if not, let us fill you in:
Corey hails from Blacksburg, Virginia, and rides out fo Copper Mountain, Colorado. A freestyle coach for Woodward Copper during the day and a music connoisseur/DJ at night, Corey spends nearly every day on a snowboard. You might say he knows a thing or two about snowboards.
Which snowboards? Corey rips on the Range, Logger, and Backwoods Split — all from Weston.
At Ski Haus, we carry the Backwoods and Backwoods Split. Besides getting @BackcountryMag's
editors' choice and a "Radical" rating from @ShaperSummit
, the Weston donates 10% of their profits from the Backwoods boards to the National Forest Foundation (@nationalforests)
, so you can feel good about riding their boards.
And the ride quality?
"The Backwoods snowboard excels in tight trees to steep, open bowls. The board Features a pow centric, Directional Multi Radial Camber-Rocker profile with a wide nose, narrow tail, Rugged Topsheet, Electra Sintered Base, and our Slayer Wood Core. These features translate into the Backwoods floating effortlessly in powder, staying nimble in tight trees, holding an edge through chatter and crud, and excelling at high speeds."
