The Storm is the snowboard that really threw Venture into the limelight after winning a whole host of awards. It combines a light 8mm taper with a long reverse camber nose than blends into a flat profile under the feet. The conservative sidecut ensures the Storm works in tight treelines as well as storming open bowls and the moderate 30mm set-back stance meets a compromise between the benefits of float and good edge control.
Developed in conjunction with Silverton Mountain and tested in Colorado’s rugged San Juan Mountains, this deck craves big lines and burly terrain. It’s chatter proof when bombing open steeps, but agile enough to navigate tight trees and narrow chutes without flinching. Moderate taper and a softer nose provide float for untouched powder fields, while a stiffer midsection and tail lend stability and control in unpredictable big mountain conditions. The surf inspired nose and rockered shape keep you from augering into the deep stuff. No wonder the splitboard version won Backcountry Magazine’s 2010 Editor’s Choice Award and the solid was named a Snowboarder Magazine “Best of Test” by Rocky Mountain retailers. With some minor tweaks to the flex for 11.12, this deck is truly dialed for whatever the mountain throws your way.
