Nostalgia can make you do funny things, like collect vintage snowboards, for example. That’s exactly what the fast growing “Vintage Snowboard Trader” Facebook group is all about. It’s a place where dedicated old school riders share their inspiration and pay tribute by building collections of old boards. Finding, buying, and trading: it’s a respectful community built on a passion for snowboarding and helping one another find the boards they are searching for.
On December 5-8, 2013, a handful of these historians descended on Baldface Lodge to finally meet in person, ride some old boards, and relive what they consider the golden age of snowboarding.
