Cold Smoke was born out of a passion for exploring the Rocky Mountains. Founders Kyle Jones and Lucas Martinez were raised in the foothills of Colorado’s San Luis Valley, a stone’s throw from Wolf Creek Pass. Both avid snowboarders, hunters, fishermen and lovers of all things outdoors, they decided to form a company that helps others navigate the mountains we all love during winter months.
After manufacturing “custom” splitboards for a few years, Cold Smoke launched its flagship factory deck — the Voodoo, constructed in Crested Butte, Colorado amid the Elk Mountains. Jones has since taken over full ownership of the company, but the tight-knit, multi-member “Cold Smoke Crew” carries on and supports the mission on which the company was founded.
For us, working and playing amid these mountains is more than a passion. It’s a way of life. We all work full-time jobs, but after a hard day’s work guiding hunting and fishing trips, cutting wood or pounding nails, we know just how to play. Here’s to life among the streams, peaks, flora and fauna that provide both livelihood and something to live for!
