4 weston snowboards.

Barry Clark spends time in Denver and Minturn and saw the "devastation" wrought by pine beetles on the drive between the two locales as well as "a parade of logging trucks" rolling through Minturn. To do his part, he launched Weston Snowboards in fall 2012.

He uses beetlekill in the boards' cores as well as poplar and timber from statewide aspen blowdowns. "It's surprisingly strong and responsive," says Clark, describing the combination of woods as "an incredibly lively and light core."

Top sellers include the flagship Beetlekill and a splitboard. For 201314, the limited edition Friends of the CAIC model is new, with Weston (like Liberty) donating a portion of sales to the Colorado Avalanche Information Center.
