AASI and Burton have been partnering on snowboard education and equipment for more than 20 years, and in the last year we’ve been collaborating on specific education highlighting the evolution of teaching kids. This winter we rolled out the “Kids Can Snowboard Too” project, a campaign to educate kids, parents, instructors, and resorts about the advancements in equipment, instruction, and terrain available to create successful lessons for 3-6 year olds.

I’ve almost always had a pow board in the lineup. In the late 90s and early 2000s it was an Option Signature 162. After moving to Steamboat and playing around with the Burton Fish and Vapor, I fell in love with the Malolo and rode it as my deep-day board for a few years. Then the Sherlock arrived with a twin shape and Flying V, and I was sold on a twin-shaped powder ride. And then the Flight Attendant arrived, and again redefined what I want in a board primarily ridden in the soft stuff. Read more “2017 Burton Flight Attendant Snowboard”
