Venture Odin Snowboard

BEST FOR BACKCOUNTRY

Named for a Norse god, this board was honed in Silverton, Colorado, home to some of the continent's gnarliest terrain. Ride it and you can tell why: The handmade board's rockered shape and offset stance keep riders on their rear legs to better devour backcountry. Underfoot, you can sense the maker's care in every step. [$595; venturesnowboards.com]
