I downloaded the photos from my iPhone that I shot during my 5 day trip to the USA. A lot of these were posted on my twitter feed, but I thought it worth while to show them again here on the blog.

Entrance way to Burton Snowboards home office and scenes from Jakes house where the Fall Bash was held. 1400 people showed up for the free party at Jakes house. How many presidents of corporations have 1400 people around to their house for a yearly free party?
Riding High skate shop, the name says it all. They had a hand drwn map outside with all the streets labeled just like a ski trail map. Double black diamond etc., Shopping day in Burlington.
Back to the Burton office, found my first snowboard on the wall of history. 1985 Performer Elite. Love it!
In Chris Doyle’s misty workshop. This is the guy who designs and creates boot and bindings for Burton. A pleasure to check out a snowboard craftsmans work space.
