Back in 2014, we partnered with Signal Snowboards to make the world’s first snowboard constructed completely from cardboard. Even since pulling off that seemingly impossible feat, we knew we could take our paper creations to new heights. As luck would have it, the folks at Mammoth Mountain called us with a seriously mammoth task: make an entire snow park out of cardboard. Our response? Let’s start lace up our boots and start our ascent.
So once again, our very own Mike Martinez and our Senior Design Specialists teamed up with the fearless team at Signal Snowboards to tackle this mountain-sized challenge.We kicked it off by cutting the cardboard into panels and then placing rings into the cut-outs—ensure the entire structure had a solid foundation. The other important part? Since it was going to be part of the environment, it it had to be good for the environment. Which meant our entire creation was 100% recyclable.
We had just six weeks to create this herculean project.It took 312 miles on a semi-trailer to reach the top of the mountain. And we had only six hours to set it up. But it made for one out-of-this-world experience for the 20 international pro and semi-pro riders including silver medalist Kyle Mack who flew in from all over the globe to shred it.
At 7,900 feet above sea level, we took innovation to new heights, proving that when you put your mind to something, you can literally move mountains.SEE LESS
