Occupation: Guide/Patroller at Silverton Mountain, Freerider
Home Town: Silverton, CO
Home Mountain: Silverton Mountain, Kendall Mountain Ski Area
Snowboarding Since: 1996
Riding Venture Since: 2011
Board of Choice: My Zelix is the most fun and best all mountain board I have ever ridden, lots of pop, turns on a dime, and great at high speeds. The new Euphoria is my go to on really deep pow days in the trees but I have also enjoyed it on big mountain pow days.
Bio: With roots in the Pacific Northwest, Courtney is an Oregon native who cut his teeth at Mount Hood Meadows, and has been splitboarding since 2008. He is now proud to call Silverton, CO home, and works as a guide and patroller at Silverton Mountain. When he’s not shredding, Court enjoys rafting, fly fishing and yard games.
Best Riding Memory? All memories of my friends sporting ridiculously huge smiles and hootin’ n’ hollerin’ when ripping around, as well as all the trips, views, sunsets and sunrises I have experienced in the pursuit of that great feeling of shredding!
Why Venture? Venture snowboards are all about quality and durability. They are made by hand, right here in Silverton, CO with the best materials available. I love being able to go to the Venture shop and see the boards being assembled. The boards are super fun to ride, great shapes, and the staff are constantly making and testing new ones to maximize enjoyment. I also like being able to get the same board as both a split and solid.
