Vashon, Washington—Ride Snowboards is pleased to announce a partnership agreement with Polaris Snowmobiles. The agreement brings together two leading companies with like-minded passion for on-snow fun. For over 50 years, the Minnesota-based snowmobile manufacturer has been providing snow enthusiasts an escape from the ordinary and a means to “The Way Out. It is this shared philosophy that makes this partnership agreement a natural fit for Ride Snowboards.

“It’s only natural as snowboarders continue to access more and more backcountry terrain that we have chosen to align ourselves with an industry-leading partner like Polaris, says Scott Mavis, Brand Director for Ride Snowboards. “Their RMK series of deep-snow snowmobiles are the best in the business. They allow snowboarders to get further into the backcountry to access the terrain they really want to ride. It’s the sled of choice for the Ride team, and the RMK’s make getting those epic shots that much easier.

“Passion drives both snowmobiling and snowboarding. Our goal is to further connect these passions to make the on-snow experience even that much more rewarding for both the avid snowboarder and avid snowmobiler. Ride’s like-minded philosophy makes this partnership a logical choice and one that we’re extremely excited about, states David Johnson, Marketing Manager, Snow for Polaris.
