Every year the Burton snowboard team travels south chasing snow. "28 Day Winter: A Snowboarding Narrative" documents a specific moment in time: August 2006, when Dean "Blotto" Gray, Jeff Curtes, and Adam Moran circled the globe with the world's best snowboarders. These young athletes, all between the ages of 15 and 30, comprise an elite team of Olympic gold medalists, legendary pioneers, and big mountain champions.
Burton's photographers not only snowboarded right alongside these power players through the life-threatening courses and first descents down Methven and Wanaka, New Zealand and Termas De Chillan, Chile, capturing the airborne 720-degree rotations and flights across man-made and natural obstacles, but also accompanied them in their travels and downtime. An intimate and penetrating glance into the lives and feats of professional athletes, "28 Day Winter" is an epic photographic narrative that captures these snowboarders pushing the limits of riding in the ultimate conditions, documents the ultimate trip, and inspires us all to ride.
Snowboarders featured in the book include Terje Haakonsen, the Norwegian legend; Shaun White, the gnarly American Olympic gold medalist; Nicolas Muller, the Swiss freestyle champion; Kelly Clark, Olympic gold medalist and big mountain champion; Hannah Teeter, Olympic gold medalist; and Victoria Jalous, the Canadian wunderkind.
