Built with Passion.
Every Franco Snowshapes board is hand built with care and soul at the base of the Tetons in Jackson, Wyoming, Built by passionate riders and designers, our small team of expert shapers take time to ensure every finished board offers a unique, quality and soulful riding experience time after time. You won't find any overseas shipping containers, multi-branded molds or minimum wage factory workers in our workshop. You will find passionate shapers, state of the art machines, classic hand tools and plenty of fresh shapes.
Designed To Your specifications.
Our boards are custom built to order. We don't prepress any snowboards. From our favorite classic shapes to your wildest ideas, when you order a Franco Snowshapes board you're getting a board crafted just for you.
Not sure what shape you want? No problem. Employing over 30 years of coaching and guiding experience, our shapers have developed a proprietary board shaping system called, 'The Rider Genome Profile'. The Rider Genome Profile factors in your physical characteristics, riding style, lifestyle and favorite riding locations to create a custom board that is truly an extension of you. Dialing in your dream snowboard is that easy.
LOCALLY SOURCED WOOD
Do you know where was your board born? Does your snowboard manufacturer know? Franco Snowshapes uses hand made wood veneers from beetle-killed Whitebark pine sourced from the slopes of Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. We even print the GPS coordinates right on the board so when you make it to Jackson, we can take a tram lap and go find where your topsheet grew up!

We use only the highest quality materials in our boards for an unparalleled ride: finesse when you want it and power when you need it. All boards are covered under a three year warranty against manufacturing defects.
BIO BASED MATERIALS
Good for the rider, good for the shaper and good for the earth. When possible we always opt to use bio-based materials in our board construction.
