Ben Ferguson is becoming one of the most well rounded snowboarders on the planet. This Burton Presents feature highlights Ben raw talent across a wide range of terrain. With mentors like Danny Davis and Terje Haakosen it’s no wonder how Ben’s transitioned from transition into steeps and deeps so well.
I have a strong feeling Burton will be holding on to this kid for a while.

The winners of all of this year’s Burton Party in Your Park stops converged on Brighton Resort, UT and Seven Springs, PA to gun it out for the PIYP Finals. What followed can only be described as a modern-day jibfest. From Brighton’s creative rail features to Seven Spring’s massive street setup, the riders laid down an insane showing of rail wizardry, and in the end the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners walked away with cash in hand.

A road movie through Norway & the mind of Terje Haakonsen
From early contest shakeups to progressing the sport in countless magazines and videos, Terje’s influence on snowboarding’s trajectory is truly monumental. Terje’s Olympic boycott and creation of the Arctic Challenge made him a pioneering proponent of rider-run contests. As a competitor he has stacked accolades including all-time high quarterpipe airs and seven Mt Baker Legendary Banked Slalom wins.
Desillusion Magazine’s editor in chief Sebastien Zanella followed Terje Haakonsen on a road trip around Norway to gain a true insight into his life away from the spotlight.
To be fair, there’s nothing basic about Boreal. Boreal sits west of Truckee on what’s know to most as the Donner Pass area. The geographical area is anything but basic, learn from the short history lesson below:
The Donner Party was a group of American pioneer migrants who set out for California in a wagon train. Delayed by a series of mishaps, they spent the winter of 1846–47 snowbound in the Sierra Nevadas. Some of the migrants resorted to cannibalism to survive, eating those who had succumbed to starvation and sickness.
Historians have described the episode as one of the most spectacular tragedies in Californian history and in the record of western migration…and this is why Strange Brew has been know to kill it.
