The smallest of decisions we make on a daily basis matter. At Niche Snowboards, our goal from day one has been to create quality snowboards using environmentally conscious materials and manufacturing practices. We are honored to have partnered with The Mothership: the world’s most environmentally friendly snowboard factory. From sourcing materials locally, to being run off of 100% hydro power and putting out ZERO CO2 emissions with their natural gas heating system, The Mothership is the most advanced snowboard factory on the planet. We are all connected, and we hope to bring you even better products, made proudly in Austria.
100% Hydro Powered:
The Mothership is directly connected to the river Gail, which provides 100% of the energy used for heating and cooling of the facility, as well as the energy for production.
ZERO CO2 Emissions:
By using the NH3 natural gas heating system, for every 1 unit of energy consumed by the system, 5 units of energy for heating and cooling is achieved.
98% Locally Sourced Materials:
By using regional ground travel instead of obtaining materials from every corner of the globe to be shipped back out again, less energy is used, less emissions are released, and local businesses are supported.
