Gilson Snow to host exciting rail jam at upcoming 2023 expo

Gilson Snow, a leading name in the winter sports industry, is thrilled to announce its participation in the upcoming Snowbound Expo, where they will host an adrenaline-pumping Rail Jam event. Taking place from November 3-5, Snowbound Expo promises to be a celebration of all things snow sports, and the Gilson Snowbound Rail Jam is set to be a highlight of the event.

With the shared love for outdoor adventures and winter activities, Gilson Snow’s partnership with Snowbound Expo reflects their dedication to fostering a vibrant snow sports community in the region. Gilson Snow is based out of Pennsylvania and is one of the largest producers of custom snowboards and skis with custom artwork. Founded by Nick Gilson and Austin Royer in 2013, the Gilson brand has now grown to offer snowboards, skis, accessories and apparel and has just opened its brand new, state-of-the-art American manufacturing facility.

Visitors will have the opportunity to see the Gilson Snowbound Rail Jam during the Snowbound Expo, the event which brings tens of thousands of New England’s snow sports community together to start the winter season. The Gilson Snowbound Rail Jam will be a showcase of professional snowboarders and skiers displaying their prowess on a crafted rail setup. The new Gilson feature promises endless entertainment, incredible stunts, and unmatched feats of skill on the rails. Visitors can expect to witness some exciting moves and leave feeling inspired for the season ahead.

Gilson Snow will provide an authentic snow sports experience, even in a convention setting. Attendees will feel like they’ve been transported to the slopes, creating an immersive and thrilling atmosphere. This winter rail jam follows their Summer Snow Day where Gilson Snow unveiled a rail jam in the height of summer with real snow.

In addition to the incredible live action that Gilson Snow will bring, the brand is offering a $400 discount on custom snowboards for all show attendees. To get the exclusive discount and pick up their custom snowboards in person at the expo, visitors must pre-order these before Oct 15th.  To pre-order, visitors can purchase at GilsonSnow.com/custom and use discount code SNOWBOUND at Checkout.

Friends of Gilson Snow, famous snow sports personalities and athletes Snowboard Jesus and Halfcabking will also be welcomed to the expo. They’ll be showcasing their new brand, Shred Happy, and fans will have a chance to meet and greet and get selfies and show their support at the Shred Happy booth.

Andrew Mikowski, CRO of Gilson Snow said “Snowbound Expo is the perfect place for us to connect with riders here in the Northeast. We thought that offering folks a super deal on Custom Snowboards would be a great way to showcase the Custom process.  After the discount, attendees will get a completely custom snowboard, get to work with a sick artist on design, and have it made here in the US for $750 – crazy!  We’re stoked to be involved in such a cool event and can’t wait to see the community at the expo enjoy the action that the Gilson team will bring.”
