Burton Presents 2016 – Mark McMorris (snowboarding)
from Burton Snowboards
In this episode, Mark McMorris bucks the contest kid stereotype as he steps away from the scoreboards and bright lights to drop hammers from British Columbia to Australia, Aspen, Japan and Austria. From heavy corked rotations to pow turns, it was a season highlighted by fun adventures with friends and a necessary reset switch following the heaviest contest circuit ever.
Hadley Hammer is one of the lucky ones, lucky as in she grew up in the shadow of the Tetons. As a young grom she would stare at the cliff bands and chutes of Jackson Hole, terrified of their size and scale, only to crush those lines a few years later. For next fall’s movie […]

Josh Dirksen is one of our favorite snowboarders of all time. The way he turns his snowboard is something most of us only see in our wildest dreams. With the 8th annual Dirksen Derby officially kicking off tomorrow, we thought this would be the perfect time to share this video of Josh taking some turns at his home mountain, Mt. Bachelor. The Dirksen Derby also happens to be one of the best snowboard events of the year, and it’s all for a good cause. For more information visit – mtbachelor.com/site/plan/info/events/dirksen_derby
