Introducing the all-new Clovis snowboard, developed with Arbor Pro Team Rider Mark Carter. When designing the Clovis snowboard, Carter returned to his roots, drawing inspiration from the Clovis point arrowheads he has found on his family’s Wyoming ranch. After two years of relentless R&D, we’ve fine-tuned the Clovis to deliver balanced precision in an all-mountain
To celebrate another successful winter and 20 years of Arbor, we arranged for a team surf trip to a non-disclosed location to surf (and get pummeled by) uncrowded waves, kick back some cold ones, and reminisce over stories from the winter months.
From WYPY: “A snowboarding documentary following a group of riders as they explore the state that they grew up in, Wyoming. Close to Home is about the people they meet and the hills that surround them.”
The Clovis is Arbor’s new Camber System gun. It was designed with Mark Carter, who drew shape inspiration from Native American arrowheads to deliver the performance, power, and stability required for hunting massive mountain lines.

Pro Snowboarder Mark Carter leads a double life. In the offseason, he works on his family ranch in Ten Sleep, Wyoming tending to hundreds of head of cattle. But once winter hits, the cattle come into pasture and Mark hits the road to Jackson to shred lines in the Tetons.
In this episode of Video Log, Bryan Iguchi and Mark Carter travel to the Andes Mountains to embark on a Chilean adventure by chairlift, split board, snowmobile, and helicopter.
Mark Carter is a cowboy-snowboarder half-breed, a man’s man. Carter approaches snowboarding with the same reckless but calculated gusto that is necessary when wrangling a herd of hundreds of cattle – a task that he’s burdened with on his family’s cattle ranch every fall before snowboard season kicks into gear.
Few men can flip calves and ride horses as gracefully as they can flip tricks and ride mountains. This cowboy-snowboarder half-breed is a man’s man and you do not want to mess with him.
Get to know Mark Carter in under 5 minutes in the latest video interview from The Inertia Mountain. From ranching to values, snowboarding and what it means to be a man, Mark talks about the pillars of his livelihood and the content of his character.
“Carter Country is a unique story that follows a day in the life of professional snowboarder and part time cowboy Mark Carter. Ranching is no joke, seven hundred head of cattle need to be looked after and corralled for “the gathering” to keep up with the family business that is nestled deep in the backcountry of Wyoming. With ranching in his blood and snowboarding in his heart, you can’t help but see the similarities between Mark’s double life.” – Leatherman Sport

Few men can flip calves and ride horses as gracefully as they can flip tricks and ride mountains. This cowboy-snowboarder half-breed is a man’s man, and you do not want to mess with him. One time, while herding cattle on his ranch in Ten Sleep, Wyoming, Carter kicked an unruly horse in the chin. The descendants of that horse are known today as giraffes. If you don’t believe me, just look in Samuel L. Jackson’s phone, where Mark Carter’s number can be found under the contact, Bad Mother… Carter’s own personal brand (pun intended) of reckless but calculated snowboarding has landed him on the podium of prestigious events such as the North Face Masters and the Natural Selection. We believe this is only the beginning for Carter, and that he’s yet to leave his Mark on snowboarding.
