RAMP Sports has officially begun U.S. production of its snowboard line, after three years of overseas production. This move allows RAMP to more closely monitor the production and quality control processes, as well as develop a more “green” snowboard line. With the move to the U.S., RAMP snowboards will be able to employ the same sustainable production process and materials of its ski line, including sustainably grown FSC certified bamboo cores and petrochemical-free Entropy eco resin.

“This is a move we have been looking forward to for a while now,” says CEO and Founder of RAMP Sports Mike Kilchenstein. “After the overwhelmingly positive response we received when we moved our ski production to the U.S. last year, we knew that we had to move our snowboard production to the states as well.”
