As the industry’s first clean energy
manufacturing facility, The MotherShip™
— distinguished as a flagship of responsible manufacturing — was awarded
Energy Globe Award for Austria.
100% Clean Energy
As industry leaders, we hold ourselves accountable to continue to invest in the evolution of responsible production processes to preserve the winters we love so much.
Ozone Depletion Potential
Global Warming Potential
Our snowboards are crafted with 98%
of materials locally sourced within
5-hour drive of The MotherShip™.
The MotherShip™’s unique location in the southern border region allows for extraordinary access to key material suppliers, allowing production to minimize carbon intensive global freight shipping of raw materials and maximize contiguous delivery. This not only supports local businesses but also results in less energy used and less emissions released along the supply chain.
How we produce
In our production line, we have implemented advanced processes that enable us to press boards at lower temperatures and with reduced cycle times. As a result, we consume less energy to operate production at The Mothership compared to standard snowboard factories. This commitment to energy efficiency aligns with our goal of
Furthermore, our low temperature pressing rooms employ plant-based bio resins with FSC certified wood cores, including hybrid cores with post-consumer recycled Thermopolymer additives. We also use water-based, UV-curable, and solventless inks for printing and zero toxic lacquer for topsheet application.
