Growing up 🏂 was everything to me. It was my living & my passion into my early 20’s. 20 years later I would meet my idol Jake Burton, he didn’t disappoint. Thank you for all you’ve done Jake. I will cherish the all the moments I was lucky enough to spend with you.

Yes. He was the soul and patron saint of snowboarding, and a beloved Vermonter whose vision has had worldwide reach.

We said farewell to Jake Burton Carpenter yesterday at a beautiful service in Stowe. Mount Mansfield looked so striking yesterday that it was as if the mountain was also paying its respects.

Hanging in my office is one of the early, wooden "Burton Boards" that are now so iconic to the sport. Marcelle and I will keep it there as a reminder of Jake's generosity to his employees and his community.

This is the photo Jake Burton Carpenter shared after learning of my dad's death in late July. Sad today to learn that Jake has now passed. My dad marveled at his innovative spirit & passion for sliding on snow. Somewhere, somehow I hope they're riding together

This one is for you Jake. For Opening Day, tomorrow at 3pm, we invite snowboarders and skiers to board the gondola (no ticket needed), meet at Hubert Haus and join in a moment of silence. Then we slide sideways at 3:30pm to celebrate a legend. Photo: Hubert Schriebl

Without Jake Burton, my life would have gone a completely different way. Without Jake Burton a little kid from Michigan might never snowboard, leading him to all the great things that happened in life. Thank you Jake. I hope you get never ending powder in heaven.
