We tend to toot our own horn a lot when it comes to podiums, but the gear we make is made possible by Shopbot. This is Evan Strong's recent Silver Metal in the Big White World Cup BX. Hopefully we'll be seeing many more wins at USASA nationals next week.

How about snowboarding with a prosthetic. Evan is the top para snowboarder in the world. We also sponsor Mike Shea ranked number 2 in the world. How about snowboarding with 2 prosthetic legs. We also work with Amy Purdy. Check out her TED talk:

The skiing sucks here unless your willing to drive 6 hrs

Congrats that's a very hard market to break into

Thanks Kevin. I'd really like to know what it was you saw. If there was something on TV, I was not aware of it.

I know of 3 others in Colorado and a few California. All using shopbots. That's only 2 states. Being one of the oldest manufacturers and producing a tool used by many of them to produce their boards, I get asked "what should I get?" all the time.

28 podiums in the able bodied divisions. Unfortunately I missed the para snowboard award ceremonies.

I was just looking on the logos behind the winner. What a good if there was a Shopbot logo. By the way congratulation.
