Prior Snowboards has just announced that Chris Prior has bought all remaining equity in the company. He recently bought out business partner Dean Thompson and is now sole owner of the company. The company is based and manufactured in Whistler B.C. You may recognize the brand name, as it was prominent on the top sheets of many Canadian athletes boards in the past Vancouver winter Olympics.


“I am extremely excited to be back at the helm and look forward to continue to grow the company into the future.  Our goal remains the same as it has since I first started building boards in 1990 – to build the best skis and boards available as determined by our customers.”   – Chris Prior


“It’s been a great ride!  I have enjoyed growing the company with Chris since he and I joined forces in December 2000, and wish it all the best going forward.  I will miss the friendships and business relationships I have made during my time here and wish them the very best in the future as well.”    –  Dean Thompson
