Surprisingly, this years burton catalogue (recieved free in the mail) is in all likelyhood the best issue of any magazine I have ever read. For those who got it free in the mail within the last week, make sure to read the article/advertisment on the fifth page. AT the top it says "ONE YEAR" in huge letters, with a guy with a fake moustache. This srticle perfectly describes life as a skibum, even though it it written around the premise of snowboarding.
I know the tension with burton is high in the skiworld, but take a few nights to read this magazine thoughroughly and Im sure you as well will be impressed.
