Park City Baby Snowboarder is Cutest Lil’ Ripper Ever

One year old Sloan Henderson is the most adorable thing to happen to snowboarding since Jake Burton was young and single.

One year old Sloan Henderson is the most adorable thing to happen to snowboarding since Jake Burton was young and single.

Through my own experiences raising little skiers, I’ve come to believe that alpine sports are a really great way for parents to spend thousands of dollars to yell at their kids outside in the cold.

But, oh, this kid — the way she loves it, the way she smiles, the way she slaps her dad five — has saved me from my spiraling cynicism.

Hearing her parents cheer her on is pretty great too. It sounds authentically joyful — not the usual angry parent turned sideline ref stuff.

It’s awesome. Watch it. Be happy.

My only question is: do they make Sloan-sized helmets?

Burton x Peanuts Youth & Women’s Collection

Charles Schulz’s iconic designs look amazing on snowboarding gear. Check out the new Burton x Peanuts Youth & Women’s Collection for snow-loving families.

In the mid-1990’s, I had a sticker of “Lucy” from Peanuts on my Burton Brushie snowboard. That board was awesome, but it was the Lucy sticker that picked up all the compliments.  

I always thought Charles Schulz’s simple, iconic designs would look rad on snowboarding gear. Turns out they look amazing, as seen on Burton Snowboards new Burton x Peanuts Youth & Women’s Collection.

burton-peanuts-boardThe kids snowboards collection features the classic Peanuts characters as depicted in the new Peanuts movie opening this weekend. Charlie Brown, Snoopy and the whole gang are there.

But it’s not just for kids: Burton is also offering a limited-edition line of women’s snowboards and layering pieces inspired by the original Peanuts® comic strip.  

These include leggings, tech tee and rad Peanuts beanie, all featuring classic artwork from the Peanuts comic strip.
