RIDE snowboards continues it’s legacy of great gear for riding the mountain, with a few tweaks and revamps to make 2018 season RIDE snowboards, boots, and bindings even better.
Like many, if not most ski and snowboard manufacturers for 2018, RIDE has messed around with carbon fiber technology. Most of the snowboards produced by RIDE for this season are not brand new, but instead are upgrades to existing gear with carbon. Using carbon fiber technology allows for the removal of weight while maintaining stiffness. This of course makes for a more lively deck while not giving up ability to tip into and hold turns. …more
We just wanted to let you all know that the Avie’s Ski and Ride bus trip list has now been posted on the Avie’s website. I’ll get you there in just a moment.

Fortunately, Avie’s keeps the price UNDER $100 for its’ ski and ride trips! …more
Hear Ye, Hear Ye All Riders! Avie’s Ski / Sport has a new brand of snowboards, bindings, and boots for you to come drool over.
Capita snowboards have found there way into the shop, and they are sweet. Great graphics atop a hi-tech deck makes for great adventures all over the mountain. Capita mixes up some great blends of carbon fiber and lightweight but structurally strong woods—like bamboo—to create snowboards that are hard charging, yet responsive. Come on over to the shop and check them out while they still adorn the wall in the “Riders Room.” They won’t be there long. Not with their come-hither great looks and siren-call pricing.
Union Binding Company makes a debut at Avie’s Ski / Sport this season as well. Rugged, lightweight, and with a bit of flex to give a cool, surfy feel to your ride, Union bindings might just make a nice marriage on the Capita snowboard you are ogling. Yeah, we noticed. But it’s okay. And Union bindings will fit the deck you have if you are looking to do an upgrade on those old, beat up, duct-taped, dry-wall screwed, zip-tied bindings that while serving as a badge of honor, are also an embarrassment.
And guess who walked into Avie’s Ski / Sport this season? thirtytwo boots, that’s who. Sure, they got BOA lacers, but they also have traditional lacings for those of you who really do like the flexibility of lacing your boots the way you like them for the ride that you want to have. Warm and highly weather-proof (think no more soggy wet feet), thirtytwo boots may be just the thing to nestle your tootsies into this season.
But riders beware!! There are only so many goodies in the shop, so make it a point to surf your way into Avie’s and check out the new gear before it disappears.
