THE JACKSON HOLE SHAPER SUMMIT | SNOWBOARD DESIGN AND CULTURE GATHERING
The JH Shaper Summit is the world’s premiere powderboard test and snowboard design gathering, and is an evolution of the JH PowWow event.
Once a year we invite some of the most dedicated and solid riders on the planet to test powder and freeride boards here in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.
For 3 days during the Rated Radical Test 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.
We test over 150 snowboards, celebrate the culture of snowboarding through the SHREDTalk sessions, and pretty much shred our faces off at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort.
This year’s event went off with 24 brands represented: Amplid, Arbor, Battaleon, Burton, Cardiff, DWD, Elevated Snowcraft, Franco, Furberg, Gentemstick, Grassroots, Lib Tech, Gnu, MtnLocal, Mizu, Neversummer, Niche, Nitro, Pallas, Ride, Rossignol, Salomon, Smartwool, Spark, Telos, Weston, and Winterstick.
The actual test is INVITE ONLY, but there are plenty of additional events going on during the week for the public.
