It’s official – Canadian Mark McMorris and Wisconsin-native Ethan Deiss are now on Burton’s AM Team, representing Burton outerwear and hardgoods at snowboard contests and film projects around the globe.

Mark paid his first visit to Burton’s home base in Vermont last week to check out HQ and meet product managers. After his visit, Mark had this to say, “I’m really stoked to be riding the best products with the most progressive team in the business,” said Mark. “Since I got on the program, I’ve already been working with such great people that all share a strong love for snowboarding, and I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else.”

Focusing mainly on slopestyle and big air events, Mark will be on the contest circuit all season long and already has a few impressive podiums to claim. So far, he’s earned two second place finishes in slopestyle – one at the Dew Tour stop in Breckenridge and another at this month’s O’Neill Evolution in Davos where he landed a Cab double cork 1260. This past weekend, he was on the podium again after getting third in slopestyle at the Killington Dew Tour stop. Now for the first time, Mark is headed to the Aspen X Games with the rest of the world’s top riders to compete in big air and slopestyle.

Ethan Deiss’ hometown of Osceola, Wisconsin isn’t exactly known for its mountains. But lack of vertical terrain didn’t keep Ethan from putting together his break-out rail video part in the 2009 snowboard movie “Think Positive”. Now that he’s on the Burton AM team, Ethan is getting his first chance to film with a full-fledged movie project this season.

During a recent filming trip in Norway, Ethan said, “You wanna know what’s cool about Burton…Everything. My only regret in snowboarding is not riding for Burton earlier. The product is just so sick.”

Congratulations to Mark and Ethan for stepping up to the Burton AM Team. Check out more about Mark McMorris at The Liftline here: http://theliftline.tv
