Exclamation Can anyone tell me anything about the snowboard i got??

Its an all green snowboard without a serial # it says molson in large print at the bottom and the top it has a VT license plate which says 'green mountain lager' I was told this might be rare or may have been won during a competition in vt , and I have searched the internet and have never found another one even similar, i contacted molson but they were no help. I am trying to find out what its worth/selling price and maybe a little back history, anything helps!! also, it doesnt say where it was made or by who. I can PM pics if it helps

Lots of beer companies have promotional decks made, occasionally even by big/quality manufacturers (I believe some of the Molson boards were made by Elan). But generally these are budget jobs and the boards do not have much tech in them, so they ride like what they are - cheap decks. Typically not worth more than $100-200.
Often people trying to sell these boards tout them as 'special' or 'limited' editions in the hope of luring some sucker into overpaying.

Depends on how old it is but Molson and Labatt were made by K2 for a while. Not sure if they still do that.

They where promotional giveaways for nightclubs... And as most of my friends are club managers, they where very easy to acquire...

If i club was given 12 to give away, 2 or 4 would be given away, the rest where moved into a storage cupboard and sat there, until a better use could be found for them...

They where actually a very good board, being made by Nitro it was just the graphics that where different, and i believe they where the Nitro T1 if i remember rightly...

I learnt on one, and found it a very solid board for a couple os seasons...

And i still have one shrink rapped deep in the back of my storage cupboard that will end up in my man cave above the bar... Haha

This is available in the USA
