In addition to our clean energy intiatives at The Mothership, its unique location amongst the mountainous border region of Austria, Slovenia and Italy gives us access to locally sourced materials and advanced R&D capabilities right in our backyard.
Using regional ground travel to obtain materials instead of pan-continental trucking or global air freight, not only supports local businesses but also results in less energy used and less emissions released.
Our dedication to building the world’s best snowboards, with the most efficient and sustainable processes, is galvanized by the company mantra —
EVERYTHING IS POSSIBLE.
