Throwback Thursday: Shaun White, the Olympics, the X Games and a Corrugated Snowboard

January 28, 2016

Winter X Games Aspen 2016 kicks off today in Aspen, and we can’t wait to see the latest tricks and flips on the slopes. On this Throwback Thursday, we’re still wondering what possibilities Shaun White, who wasn’t invited to the games this year, missed by not riding our corrugated snowboard. Check out just how extreme snowboarding can get.

We’re all about innovative thinking here at Ernest Packaging Solutions, but sometimes a test comes along that is just outrageous. And frankly, we love it. Signal Snowboards approached Ernest with a unique proposition: They wanted a snowboard that was made of paper and was totally disposable, biodegradable and earth-friendly to be featured in their Every Third Thursday video series.

We never shy away from a tough project, so Mike Martinez, director of consulting services, and a team that included our own President Tim Wilson accepted the challenge. The results?

Now that is a package-engineering showing for the ages! If only Team USA would have approached us earlier, we probably could have helped them bring home a few more gold medals – and we could have helped protect their new jewelry coming back from Sochi, too.
