It's official, Burton just dropped Team USA's snowboarding uniforms and... well... they're something. The North Face took subtle inspiration from NASA for the freeskiers' uniforms in the lettering but it stopped there. Burton went full spacesuit, basically creating an exact replica of Neil Armstrong's duds.
Burton hasn't been afraid to push the design envelope with its Team USA uniforms. The jean/plaid combo of 2010 is the stuff of outerwear legends and this is sure to join the pantheon of strange snowboard kits.
The best part of the entire collection is a spacesuit onesie. Can't wait to see Shaun White blasting off in those threads.

Sure, the photos on Instagram look nice. There’s a retired 1953 GMC fire truck with a hand-built wooden deck piping smoke out of the chimney from the wood-burning stove inside. There’s a chili pepper-red box truck sitting in the sand with surfboards propped up idly against it as the sun sets over the beaches of Baja, Mexico. What the photos don’t tell you is that the fire truck has a blown transmission. And the box truck? It’s stuck in the sand. RELATED: Tragedy, Rebuilding and Life
Mother Nature is nothing if not a fickle mistress. And after a pretty suboptimal ski season for most of the Beehive and Centennial State, both Utah and Colorado might be blessed with a rarity by the end of this week: A mid-May pow day. A significant system has consistently been showing up on the models for late this week into the upcoming weekend. That might bring another foot or more snow above 7,500 feet to some mountain locations that are still open for the season in Utah and Colorado.
