The 41-year-old snowboard company employs a team of 360 who love the sport their work revolves around -- and when there's two feet of fresh powder on the ground, the company closes for a snow day and encourages the staff to hit the slopes. The office doesn't feel that far away from the mountain anyway: In addition to ski-lodge-like details that make for a cozy working space, HQ is packed with employees' dogs, offers an expansive garden with individual plots for staffers and features impromptu happy hours in the great outdoors.
