PowderJet Snowboards is the brainchild of Jesse Loomis, a Southern Vermont shred who has been around the snowboard industry for many years. These boards are made for riding powder, hence the name. Each board is hand-crafted in Southern Vermont and made of select hardwoods (sustainable harvested maple), with performance and eco-conscious efforts in mind. The boards are built for ripping the tight trees of Vermont, not your resort groomers. Each board has a Rocker shape (reverse camber) that allows it to float effortlessly in powder, a deep sidecut to help make those tight turns and a set back stance so your nose doesn’t dive under the snow. The boards also features a wider nose for better float and a slight concave shape towards the tail for more of a “surfy” feel. Since the boards are relatively short (151 cm), it makes it a breeze to whip around in the woods. These boards are all about having fun, ripping some turns and having a good time with friends. In the day of super hi-tech boards, PowderJets are a nice refreshing way to shred. You might see legendary Vermont shreds like Randy Gaetano, Mike Montanaro, Scott Lenhardt and Shem Roose on these boards, shredding the Vermont Backcountry. PowderJet sells two types of boards: the Type A and the Type B. Type A is a normal width where as the Type B is a bit wider for bigger feet. You can order the boards with or without edges ($100 more for edges), but if you’re ripping the unknown pow stashes, you don’t need to worry about edges. Both boards start at $650, which isn’t bad considering you are getting a one of a kind, hand shaped snowboard. Support PowderJet Snowboards and real snowboarding!
