LTD Snowboard Company Expands Elite Pro Team


TORONTO, ONTARIO, Canada — March, 2003 – LTD® Snowboards set out to do two things this year; Team and Product. After building the team the product fell right into place. “Our strong team of riders provided feedback and product refinements on everything our product developers put together,” said Michael Tadgell, VP Product.

KIM BONSACK: New to the LTD® team this year, Kim is one of the most progressive female riders in the sport. Kim’s board has a true 80’s inspired graphic — retro has arrived on the hill!

NATE COLE: Nate’s technical riding has positioned him as one of the top backcountry riders of this decade – clean, fluid and super smooth. From huge Alaskan descents to Tahoe backcountry, Nate kills it!

ANDY HETZEL: Hetz is back with a new board series that matches the same smooth style that has made him one of the top freeriders in the sport. From backcountry hits to technical descents, Andy steps it up every time he rides.

J2 RASMUS: Whether J2 is sessioning rails or hitting backcountry kickers, he nails it every time with style. Like only J2 can!

JIM RIPPEY: New to the team, Jim brings with him over a decade of backcountry and technical freestyle wizardry. Whether he’s stomping big landings or floating it in the pow, he’s always in control.

The new LTD® rider team are all riding custom designed Pro Series boards. You can scope them out at your local board shop or go to
