Burton Snow Boards
Jake moved to Londonderry, Vermont in the early 1970’s and began to make Burton Snowboards with his cofounder Dimitrije Milovich. Getting the permission from Vermont ski areas to allow snowboards or “surfboards” on their hills, proved to be an interesting challenge. Suicide Six Ski Area in Pomfret was the first. Stratton, Stowe, Killington, and Jay Peak followed. The snowboarding craze began – pushed by “popular demand” a new sport was born.
Just about every boarder in the world has heard of Burton Snowboards, outdoor wear, gear and apparel. The company has played a major role in the snowboards and other products.
