Join us for a global day of snowboarding to celebrate the legacy of Jake Burton Carpenter.
In honor of Jake, the OvR Family & our Burton NYC Family are headed to the mountains to represent NYC on March 13, 2021. Shred family across the globe will be headed to the hills to celebrate all that Jake and snowboarding has given us. Register below to join us for the day. Get out get out and ride! Ride to remember, and ride because snowboarding is what brings us together.
Jake’s vision was to bring snowboarding to all. His dream, his perseverance and his generosity were his gift to the world. As an industry, and as a community we come together for this day to remember, reflect and ride. Together we open our doors and open our hearts to carry Jake’s spirit forward; to share our love of the mountains and the joy of a perfect turn. Because snowboarding makes us happy. Snowboarding makes us hopeful. Snowboarding makes us free.
This is all about getting outside and snowboarding in thanks for all Jake has given us. No major plans need be made, just show up and enjoy a day on the mountain. There will be some Burton crew meeting at 9am at the Cabriolet at Vernon Peak to give thanks and take to the hill.
This season, a little after one year after we lost Jake, our crew will continue to carry on his memory in raising funds for the Chill Foundation, the nonprofit organization Jake founded to help send at risk youth to the mountains.
After Jake’s passing, in lieu of flowers or other forms of support, contributions were asked to be made to the Chill Foundation. We ask you to continue that support in Jake’s memory.
