Venture Snowboards Will Not Deliver Boards for 2015/16 Season
Surely with a heavy heart, Venture Snowboards out of Silverton, Colo. announced today they would not be delivering boards to the market for the upcoming Winter season. However, Klem and Lisa Branner, founders of Venture, ended the letter to their supporters saying, “This isn’t goodbye. See you soon.”
Venture Snowboards has encountered some challenging terrain in recent months. Circumstances beyond our control have forced us to make a tough decision. We will not be delivering any boards to market for the 2015-16 winter season.
To our friends, colleagues, collaborators and all you Venture riders and supporters, we are deeply sorry. We sincerely apologize for any impacts this may have on you or your business.
To our staff who stuck by us through thick and thin—you are the heart of Venture. So many people had the best days of their lives on boards we built by hand. That is something to be proud of, something no one can take away.
Trust us when we say we did everything possible to make it work. Venture has been a labor of love for us for more than 16 years. We did it for you, for ourselves, and for snowboarding.
We can't project what will happen beyond 2015-16. In the meantime, we hope you'll support the other craft manufacturers out there who love snowboarding as much as we do.
This isn't goodbye. See you soon.
Klem and Lisa Branner
