Gnu Girls has evolved through of a shared love of snow sports and a mutual respect for those who have paved the way and set the bar high for passion and play. At Gnu, women’s snowboard design began in the 80’s, with a women’s world champion riding the boards and competing, often winning, against the men. The 90’s brought about change in the sport and an incredible growth as snowboarding became an acceptable activity at resorts around the world. Gnu worked with Barrett to create one of the first women’s pro models, and the longest running women’s pro model in the industry today. From that moment forward Gnu has worked to design the most impressive women’s collection with a firm grasp of the market and the need for performance product that makes snowboarding easier, more fun, and more inclusive for all.
