Take a virtual tour of the Prior factory and see what goes into making some of the best boards available.

Chris Prior has been making snowboards since 1990 and started producing splitboards in 2000. At that time there were only a handful of manufacturers producing splitboards and today their line is one of the deepest on the market. Currently Prior offers 8 (yes 8!) different splitboard shapes available in 4 different profiles. For BTO (build to order) options, users can opt for their XTC Carbon construction and choose between a number of topsheet and base combinations. All boards now come with a 3 year warranty as well.

Vimeo users don’t forget to follow Prior too! On Instagram they can be found @priorsnow.

About Prior

Since 1990, Prior has been relentlessly Refining the Ride. Handcrafting high-performance snowboards for more than two decades has given Prior the knowledge and skills to consistently produce boards and skis that stand up to the test of time, and the rigorous performance needs of the most dedicated local riders and elite athletes.

Shape, length, sidecut, flex, weight, camber, and material composition are all carefully considered and tested in Prior’s custom factory at the bottom of Whistler Mountain (North America’s biggest winter resort). Prior’s un-rivalled access to R&D leads to continuous enhancements thru its full lineup handcrafted boards and skis. Throughout its history Prior has been driven by the singular goal of making the best boards and skis possible. (read more)
