The Storm was developed in conjunction with the team at Silverton Mountain, and like all Venture boards, it gets refined every year based on rider feedback. For 2015 Venture are blending aspen with poplar and ash, allowing us to simultaneously trim about a half-pound off each board without compromising flex and durability. This stout- yet-nimble deck dominates all that the baddest mountain in the lower 48 has to offer: big lines, closeout lines, and of course…fresh lines. It’s chatter proof when bombing open steeps, agile in tight trees, and navigates narrow chutes without flinching. Moderate taper and a softer nose provide float in the fresh, while a meaty midsection and tail lend stability and control.
