Bonfire Snowboarding began in 1989 with a drawing on a napkin and a desire to be artistic, eclectic and to keep snowboarding unique. Twenty-two years later we're still drawing on napkins—in RV's, airports and car rides, to bring you an authentic collection of outerwear that will withstand any condition the elements throw your way.
