In 1977, Jake Burton Carpenter founded Burton Snowboards out of his Vermont barn and has dedicated his life to snowboarding ever since. Burton has played a pivotal role in growing snowboarding from a backyard hobby to a world-class sport by creating ground-breaking products, supporting a team of top snowboarders and pushing resorts to allow snowboarding. Today, Burton designs and manufactures industry-leading products for snowboarding and the snowboard lifestyle, including snowboards, boots, bindings, outerwear and layering as well as year-round apparel, packs/bags and accessories. Privately held and owned by Jake and his wife, Burton President Donna Carpenter, Burton's headquarters are in Burlington, Vermont with offices in Austria, Japan, Australia, California, Canada and China.

Garmin is proud to sponsor the 2015 Burton US Open Snowboarding Championships and excited to show off the exciting new VIRB line of HD Action Cameras. We are in awe of what the amazing athletes at the Championships can achieve and are inspired by them and everyone who pushes the limits of what is possible, and what makes a good video.
That's why the VIRB line of HD Action Cameras is rugged and durable right out of the box, with longer battery life and better performance in extreme conditions. Editing your footage with the free VIRB Edit software allows you to grab data from the camera like GPS position, speed, barometer and altimeter and from compatible sensors (ex heart rate monitor) and then add overlays to your video as dials and gauges. You can even customize what those overlays look like. And, VIRB action cameras wirelessly connect to compatible Garmin devices so you can use them as remote controls or use their tracking and fitness features in your video.
Visit us in the Garmin booth at the Sponsor Village and check out the VIRB family of action cameras.
Did you know Paul Mitchell is the longest-standing sponsor of the US Open? We are stoked to continue our partnership with Burton and, once again, be a part of one of the sickest snowboard events of the year. Some people might be scratching their domes thinking, "What does a haircare company have to do with a snowboard event?" Well, the connection is simple: Professional Stylists and Snowboarders are all about style, creativity and freedom of expression; they just work off different canvases.
Paul Mitchell will be at the Open, keeping the crowds entertained in their MITCH Mancave at Festival Village handing out free samples of fresh new products to help keep helmet head under control and style points up. It's going to be one big party, so come along for the ride because remember - style isn't born. It's groomed.
