Burton Snowboards: Product development camp 2012

In a garage, that sits at 10,000 feet in Breckenridge, Colorado, there’s a scene that would make any snowboarder drool. No less than 25 boards line the walls, mostly all-black prototypes. Dozens of boots, bindings, and boot and binding parts are lined up along the floor and tables. There’s even some “top secret” new binding that looks like Doc brought it back in the DeLorean. Turning screws and talking shop is a who’s who of Burton from engineers and R&D types to team riders.

Jussi Oksanen, Jeremy Jones, Mark Sollors, Mikey Rencz, John Jackson, Zak Hale, Cilka Sadar, Enni Rukajarvi, Kelly Clark, and even Shaun White all slide in and cycle through concepts on snow.
