What you'll do

At a Build Your Own class, you'll spend the day designing and building your dream snowboard. I've developed a process that's easy enough for people with no woodworking experience to build a board. I'll walk you through the build, and be there every step of the way as your dream snowboard emerges from the dust. Before you arrive at class, we work together to decide on the profile, length, and flex of your board so that when you arrive at the class, you can jump right into the building process with a wood and p-tex blank that I hand build for you in my shop to your custom specifications. To begin, we'll cut out the shape of your board. You can choose from 13 nose profiles and 13 tail profiles (or come up with your own!) for an almost infinite number of unique shapes. Your board will be yours. Next, we'll work on finishing your board and adding whatever graphics you can dream up. By the end of the class, you will have a fully functioning, super fun snowboard and a few new friends. You'll be part of the PowderJet family. Class runs from 9am to 6pm .

Learn more about Jesse

Jesse

I am the founder and owner of PowderJet Snowboards. I've been working in the snowboarding industry for over 20 years and ridden all over the world. For the past 10 years, I've been hand building custom wooden snowboards for customers from all corners of the earth from my shop in Vermont. For the past 5 years I've been traveling around the country offering Build Your Own classes, where people build their own custom snowboard. I'm a woodworker by trade, and the kind of guy who takes powder days off.

We're also within 45 minutes of Killington and Okemo. We've got amazing local food, beautiful natural scenery, and all kinds of backcountry terrain if you want to take some time to explore.
