A little while back I had the privilege of venturing up to the Oregon coast with some of the Burton crew to do a shoot for their Fall lookbook and the relaunch of BurtonGirls.com. Seeing as their new site just went live, I figured I would give you a preview of my day exploring the woods and the shore with team riders Gabi Viteri, Kimmy Fasani, and Hannah Teter. It is always cool working with Burton seeing as they are like family, but it was especially rad to do this shoot with an all girl crew from the talent, to the stylists, filmer, and producers. Be sure to check out the full lookbook here and click around the rest of the site to see what these lovely ladies have in store for you.

More photos and a video from the day after the jump.

Craig Kelly Burton 82 3

This past week I had the privilege to attend the opening of Burton’s new Craig Kelly Proto Facility. On top of that I got to ride with one of the men who started it all, Jake Burton Carpenter. It was easily one of my best days riding Stowe Mountain Resort, the mountain I grew up riding.

Check out out more photos from my trip and the full story on snowboardermag.com and a big thanks to Burton Snowboards for the invite.

Last week I made my way back to Vermont for the 28th Burton US Open. Temperatures reaching the 60s, good friends, and great riding made for an incredible week. It wasn’t all fun and games for me though, I spent a majority of my time there hiking through the wet snow shooting photos… which I definitely can’t complain about. I picked out some of my favorite shots for this post, plus there are links to full galleries where my photos were posted after the jump.
