Who We Are

Everything we do at Burton started in the mountains. From getting the most out of every journey to chasing snow around the globe, we've charged ahead to innovate and change the way people enjoy the outdoors since day one.

Meet Jake

Jake Burton Carpenter founded Burton Snowboards out of his Vermont barn back in 1977, and has dedicated his life to snowboarding ever since. Burton served a pivotal role in growing snowboarding from a backyard hobby to a world-class sport by creating groundbreaking products, supporting the world's best riders, and pushing more resorts to allow snowboarding.
