In episode 8 of the Spark R&D Podcast, we chat with Steph Nitsch, the co-owner and founder of the women’s snowboard brand, Pallas Snowboards. Steph is an avid splitboarder and spends a lot of time backcountry, making her a perfect guest for the show. During the podcast, we talk about the origins of Pallas Snowboards, some of her design philosophy, the Jackson Hole Pow Wow, and her passion for getting ladies active in the backcountry.
In episode six of the Spark R&D Podcast we spoke with photographer Zach Clanton. Zach spends a ton of time in the backcountry and filled us in on his photography, his affinity for human powered travel, sketchy plane landings, his AK split mission to “Storm Troopers” with Thomas Delfino last winter, and more!
