Board Play: The Winterstick Story

In the late 1960s, Utah resident Dimitrije Milovich - inspired by surfing films of the day - started making his own snowboards. In 1972 he dropped out of college, moved back to Utah and patented his first design: the Swallowtail. By 1976 he founded the Winterstick company which went on to produce 1500 snowboards that year. 

Eight of Winterstick's early models - including the iconic Swallowtail - are featured in a rotating display alongside a short video showcasing Milovich's new invention in action.
