While Matt Peterson is the current VP of Woodward Tahoe, Boreal and Soda Springs, he’s done it all in the world of snowboarding.  During his pro riding days, he competed in the X Games, filmed with Warren Miller and others, had the sponsors, and did the travel.  He then went on to help start Academy Snowboards and used his marketing genius to help make the brand an instant success.  And while Matt keeps moving up to bigger and better corporate jobs--in his heart, he will always be that passionate rider, fighting to build meaningful community and he’s doing just that—with Woodward budgets.
