Never Summer Factory

A couple weeks ago, I took my two boys out to Copper. We took a break from the mountain on one of the days to take a tour of the Never Summer Factory in Denver. I know there are a lot of good boards out there, but personally, I have had great experiences with theirs and feel like they make me a better rider than what I probably actually am.

I hope they don't mind me saying this as they probably don't want to be giving tours everyday, but if you get the chance and have some time to kill while in or going through Denver, it is worth the short trip off of I-70. Super friendly people and they showed us every step of the process, got to see next year's boards, and had the chance to talk to some really cool people. Took about 45 minutes total. Gave me even more conviction on why I ride their product.

My boys both really liked it as well...probably had something to do with the eagle die cuts and stickers they were given.

Thanks Flaus. Greatly appreciate your efforts in finding them.

Hope I have the privilege to visit the factory too one day. Don't know how these visits are arranged though. Cannot imagine the speaker in the video would entertain each and every visitor like that. Amazing. Thumbs up to him for his patience.

They are very accommodating. Swing by and ask, you'll probably get a tour. Though you are rolling the dice a bit. If they have something going on, they may not be able to do it. Better if you arrange it ahead of time. PM VMan ahead of time and let him know when you'll be around. It'll probably amount to a little more than you giving a heads up as to when you'll be at the factory. If not, I'm sure he'll work out a time for you that works.

They are an awesome crew there, it is nice thing to extend them a little courtesy so that they can make sure your visit is awesome.

Email them and set up a time for sure! it is so worth it. And Vince totally treats you right. He goes into as much detail as you seem interested in. I would prefer going here than going to Disney land.

Are there more parts to this? Or are these just a teaser?


Coffee is your friend. Everyone else is an acquaintance.
