Attention passengers. Burton is “Now Boarding” with the first of three clues that will reveal the destination of the first mystery trip. A total of three trips are up for grabs. We’re also giving away a bag a week full of the gear you pack (don’t forget to throw in some shred gear…hint hint). So make sure you enter early and often at http://www.facebook.com/burtonsnowboards.

There’s no better cure for a post-holiday hangover than getting out on the hill. Gabi Viteri, Cilka Sadar, and Rana Okada burn off the extra calories by shredding apart The Stash and the park at Northstar at Tahoe.

Burton Snowboards is proud to congratulate Burton team rider Kevin Pearce on his first day back on a snowboard since he suffered a traumatic brain injury while training for the Olympics in 2009.
Kevin has been a part of the Burton family for years, receiving his first snowboard from Jake Burton himself back when he was just five years old. In 2004, Kevin earned his first official sponsorship with Burton Snowboards after a Burton team manager was impressed with his riding during summer camp at Mt. Hood. From that point on, Kevin started showing up on podiums everywhere, with career highlights like consecutive Arctic Challenge victories, a pair of Air &Style wins, multiple X Games medals and back-to-back European Open wins.
Everything changed in an instant when Kevin suffered a traumatic brain injury while attempting a Cab double cork during a halfpipe training session on December 31, 2009. Since then, Kevin has spent nearly two years putting all his energy into rehab, re-learning things we all take for granted like eating, walking, talking, balancing and seeing.
Until recently, Kevin didn’t know if he would ever be able to snowboard again. So when he got the green light from his doctors it was a dream come true, and everything came together yesterday as he strapped on his board for the first time since the accident. Jake Burton was honored to join Kevin for his inaugural runs at Vail yesterday, before Kevin headed to Breckenridge to ride with friends and fans.
“To get to this point in his recovery, Kevin has worked harder and has had more determination than anyone I know,” said Jake Burton, Founder and CEO of Burton Snowboards. “His positive attitude and sense of humor through it all has inspired millions of people, including me personally in a big way. I couldn’t be happier to be here with Kevin to get back on snow with him. It was a day I’ll never forget.”
In a pretty historic moment yesterday, Jake switched out his ‘I Ride for Kevin’ snowboard sticker (the grassroots campaign Burton created back in 2009 to show support for Kevin) with a new Burton sticker that says ‘Ride with Kevin’. The new message pretty much says it all.
In honor of Kevin’s amazing milestone, today on Wednesday, December 14th Burton will donate 10% of all proceeds from its sales on http://burton.com to traumatic brain injury research.
Lindsey Vonn took home her 5th World Cup of the season on her adopted home soil in Beaver Creek. This amazing win was the 4th in a row that she has taken home; a new US record. Vonn’s World Cup win at the Super-G in Colorado is number 46 in her career, tying her with Austria’s Renate Goetschl for third on the career list.
Lindsey even joined in the “Tebowing” craze in respect for Denver Broncos quarterback, Tim Tebow, as she dropped down on a knee and struck a prayer pose after the race.
Despite personal drama (a recent divorce from Thomas Vonn), Lindsey Vonn is determined to take on the mountain, and we are quite certain she is doing just that.
Since the early days of Burton Snowboards, women have always helped shape the team, the products and the company. Today marks another milestone with the launch of burtongirls.com, Burton’s first online community dedicated to women and the snowboard lifestyle. See what the girls are up to at http://burtongirls.com.

“If we can not get to the mountains we will build our own…”
60 tons of real snow and steal designed to challenge the skills of professional and not so professional snowboarders & skiers.
The type of Rail Jam event is become increasingly popular with both the snowboard and ski demographics. The construction of an artificial hill covered in real snow with special rail slide feature provides the opportunity to show off you skills in front of other participants and spectators who are treated to an up close look at every bone jarring, board and ski grinding maneuver.
Ski Pro’s “Pro Rider Rail Jam Event” is part of an annual pre-season snowboard and ski sale at the Valley’s three Ski Pro locations. Ski Pro has been helping to bring the fun and excitement of skiing and snowboard to the valley for over 30 years and this event is just one more example of their commitment to these sports.
On top of all the action we’ve also got some guest appearances by;
And the man himself Devun Walsh
The Boss Of The Backcountry.
Very few in snowboarding have earned the “Legend” status—and such universal respect—as the perennial Boss himself, Devun Walsh. The holder to every key in the Whistler Backcountry, his parts have been ageless, and his style on a snowboard will forever stand the test of time. Along with DC teammate Iikka Backstrom, Devun backed up his standout 2010 video part in the TransWorld SNOWboarding film, In Color, by launching the acclaimed blog and Webisode series, Polar Opposites.
A man of few words, he sums it all up with simplicity and class: “I just really, really enjoy shredding powder.” Amen, brother.
Says Dev: “Powder is endless, and I’m addicted to it. I’ve ridden for DC since they first launched boots. My background is skating, and so is DC’s—perfect fit!”
