BUILD YOUR OWN SNOWBOARD

Spend the weekend with us and build your own custom PowderJet. You choose your model and shape, and create your own artwork for a custom topsheet. Leave at the end of the weekend with a totally one of a kind PowderJet that's ready to ride.

RIDE THE TETONS

Shred in the morning, shape in the afternoon. We've set up the schedule so you can have the best of both worlds: ride the epic Tetons and get crafty making the board of your dreams. Wether you're riding backcountry or the resort, we have package options for you that include discounted lift tickets or transportation to and from the Teton Pass.

TAILORED FOR YOU

Based on conditions and the session, you choose your morning: Ride Grand Targhee, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort or the Teton Pass. You'll get a discounted lift ticket as part of the group, or a ride to and from The Pass to our workspace location. Did you say lunch? Powder and woodworking make you hungry! We've got it covered so that you can worry about having fun and making stuff. We promise to feed you well.

SPEED OF SAWDUST TOUR

We've taken our Build Your Own classes on the road as part of the Speed of Sawdust tour. Instead of traveling to our shop in Vermont, we've come out West to you. This is a once in a lifetime experience to hand shape your very own PowderJet in the Rockies.

SAVE THE WORLD

We use US grown FSC certified poplar, which we laminate together with a super clean bio resin from Entropy Resin. A Ptex base and steel edges are laminated together with the poplar sheets in an industrial snowboard press that designed in the PowderJet workshop. We only make about 150 boards a year, by people who take powder days off. No made in China. No toxic soup.

THE GIFT THAT KEEPS ON GIVING

Everything is better with friends! Bring your buddies, or give the #buildyourown workshop as a gift. This experience is truly the greatest gift for the rider in your life. Let us know and we'll walk you through it!

OUR BOARDS

PowderJets were created with a simple mission:    to handcraft an eco conscious, super fun snowboard to tear up the backcountry.

HELLO! I'M JESSE LOOMIS

HELLO! I'M JESSE LOOMIS

I started building PowderJets in 2009 because I couldn't find the board I wanted in the mayhem of the current snowboard industry. The board I was looking for wasn't being built, so PowderJet Snowboards was spawned.

MY BOARD

MY BOARD

I wanted a classic powder surfer that would float me through open powder fields, and turn tightly enough to manage the squirrely trees here in Vermont, and it needed to be built as ecologically-minded as possible. So I built my own PowderJet.

YOUR BOARD

YOUR BOARD

You choose your model and shape, and create your own artwork for a custom topsheet. Once you've registered, I'll be in touch to work out the details of your specific build and work out the specs for your board and graphics.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

         


I thought my PowderJet would be more of a specialty board I'd only ride on deep pow days. Last winter, I rode it almost everyday! With Jesse's help, I was able to build my PowderJet with all the things I was looking for in a board. And a great way to spend a weekend!

I can't say enough about how cool #buildyourown was. Just the best time.


My buddy and I went down to San Diego to a #buildyourown workshop his wife got him for his birthday. It was the best time! A weekend to unplug, surf, learn, make something with my hands, spend time with friends and leave with a rad board. Highly recommend.
