The final installment in Burton’s five part web series dropped today and it’s pretty darn entertaining. They cover a-lot of ground in this one but solid music choices and on point editing make for a smooth flowing piece. Highlights for me were Dan Davis’ properly tweaked grabs, Werni Stock flipping all over the place, Ben Ferguson’s overall zest for life and Shaun trying to get street cred by only having powder shots and a switch back 5. Peace Park definitely my favorite section in this with the Squaw Valley jumping madness coming in a close second. I like the webisode concept, I think it was well executed but I hope Burton pulls out the big guns and makes a banger team video next year.

Remember! Remember! The 13th of August! The boards, the bindings, the boots! This is the season, the season of reason and we all aught to be ready to bomb chutes! Ok, it’s not as good as the original but I tried. Just imagine Hugo Weaving saying it, makes it better.
Anyway, it’s here, winter is here, you just don’t know it yet. It’s creeping into the back of your mind and soon you’ll be searching for video premiere dates, thinking about what pass to get, even looking at early snow tire deals. In Southern California winter isn’t so much a season as it is a state of mind so winter can start anytime I want it to and now seems about as good a time as any.
Like Killington always opening before any other mountain in the U.S. (even if it’s just one patch of snow on half a trail), Burton likes to beat everyone to the punch on their winter site launch. In the olden days I’d be overjoyed when “The Catalog” would arrive in the P.O. Box (google it kids) but now I settle for an email in my inbox letting me know the site is up.
Saving pictures of gear isn’t as much fun as reading and re-reading the catalog, dog earring pages, Sharpie in hand just to make sure I didn’t miss anything. But this is the modern world we live in and at least I get to share my two cents with anyone who’s willing to read my babble.
So, thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoy the product and find what you’re looking for…in terms of snowboard gear, I’m not qualified to guide you in any sort of larger existential search for meaning in this world.
Cheers! Continue reading

Dan Davis, Jack Mitrani bringing you the important headlines of the day. KP will have the weather at 11.
Click above to head on over to BLISS MAGAZINE for some hard hitting investigative journalism from Daniel Davis. He’s prying all sorts of information out of his Frend, Jack Ryan Mitrani. Does Jack go bigger than everyone in the halfpipe? Yes. Is Jack single? Um. Does Canada really only give you one ketchup packet? WTF?!
My favorite piece done by fellow Vermonter Scott Lendhart
