CFR was started in 1999 by dedicated shredder Dave Basterrechea. Dave started snowboarding in 1987 and was instantly hooked. Snowboarding took dave all over the world competing and filming until he landed in Whistler BC Canada in 1997. Dave started using snowmobiles to get into the backcountry to go snowboarding that year. Snowmobilng quickly became the way to get into the Mountains and access the amazing terrain surrounding the Whistler area. Carrying your snowboard in your back pack was the only way to carry your snowboard back then. Dave felt that carrying his snowboard on his back was getting in the way of his snowmobilng, especially when tandeming up with another person. Dave built a prototype snowboard rack for his snowmobile in the summer of 1999 and began testing that winter. The design worked. Soon dave realized that skiers needed racks to carry there skis and poles.
In 2000 Dave built a rack for skis as well. The CFR snowboard and ski racks were the first snowboard and ski racks available on the market. Every year the product line up gets better and more refined. Snowmobiles have improved dramatically in the last 10 years and CFR has kept up with the rapid technology. All of the products have been tested in some of the most demanding conditions by snowmobilers,skiers and snowboarders. Bumbed out icy trails in the morning and accidental rollovers. You name it. Hundreds of hours spent using and abusing. CFR products are built to last. We think that you will agree.
