A Snowboard With Soul

Mikey Franco is a snowboarding guru. His 30+ years in the industry put his skills and knowledge second to none. Throughout his tenure he has been helping design and develop teaching techniques and board shapes. Recently he launched Franco Snowshapes out of Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Franco Snowshapes builds boards for the rider. Each snowboard is a unique representation of what snowboarding means to the boards future owner. Recently I had the pleasure of building a Custom 160 Swallowtail Snowboard with Mikey. From tip to tail and back around to the topsheet, it's a board that has my input through and through. If you plan on visiting the Jackson, Wyoming area anytime soon, I highly recommend dropping by The Factory on Gregory Lane (1255 Gregory Lane, Jackson, WY 83001 (307) 734-8788). It's a shop unlike any other where passion for the sport yields the production of some amazing artisanal, revolutionary products. The Factory is also home to world-famous Igneous Skis ( and Teton Artist Mike Tierney. Just bring a six-pack of PBR and be prepared to talk snwoboards and skis for the next couple hours.
