The History of Snowboarding in Colorado

Looking back on this I probably should have posted this a bit sooner but due to some unforeseen events beyond my control we’re just now getting to it. December 8th a night full of history, literally as Colorado’s contributions to snowboarding were honored. The Vail Ski and Snowboard Museum is now playing host to the Colorado Snowboard Archive through the winter. If you’re in Vail or even Summit County my recommendation is to check it out. Below is a plethora of photos we took, always good to know your roots.
