Handmade in Vermont – MTN Local Snowboards


MTN Local Snowboards bringing the F-Word back on the Hill…….FUN!

Over the past few years, we have been working on a variety of unique patch projects with MTN Local Snowboards. MTN Local Snowboards is a Handmade Garage Built Snowboard Company in Essex, Vermont owned and operated by Max Holzman. Max has worked in the snow industry for many years and has an extensive trade background which includes machining, welding and fabrication so the idea of building a snowboard seemed quite obvious. Max spends many hours building and shaping snowboards in his garage for clients all over North America. MTN Local Snowboards are known to have unique one of a kind shapes and sizes that are very functional in all mountain conditions, standing out from the rest of the crowd. Max is currently attending a snowboard expo in Jackson Hole Resort – Jackson Hole, Wyoming with a new fleet of boards at the JH Shapers Summit. Please see the info on JH Shapers Summit below.



Jackson Hole Shapers Summit –

“The JH Shaper Summit (formerly the JH PowWow) is the world’s premiere powderboard test and snowboard design gathering held in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.
Once a year we invite some of the most dedicated and solid riders on the planet to test powder and freeride boards. For 3 days we ride the heck out of as many boards as we can and give the feedback directly to each brand in an effort to collectively progress snowboard design.
The actual test is INVITE ONLY, but there are plenty of additional parties and events like the SHREDTalks going on during the week open to the public.
We test over 150 snowboards, generate over 500 reviews, celebrate the culture of snowboarding through the SHREDTalks, and pretty much shred our faces off at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. Organized by pro-rider Rob Kingwill.
The 6th annual event went off with 24 brands represented: Amplid, Arbor, Bataleon, Burton, Cardiff SnowCraft, DWD, Elevated Surfcraft, Franco, Furberg, Gentemstick, Grassroots, Lib Tech, Gnu, MtnLocal, Mizu, Neversummer, Niche, Nitro, Pallas, Ride, Rossignol, Salomon, Smartwool, Spark, Telos, Weston, Winterstick.”
