Snowboarding In Southern Vermont by Brian L. Night
According to the book jacket "During the 1980s and 1990s, the "Manchester and the Mountains" area of Vermont was the epicenter of the fledgling sport of snowboarding. With the presence of Burton Snowboards, the U.S. Open Championships and one of the earliest machine- built halfpipes at Stratton Mountain, the local population led the vanguard as the sport ventured from the fringe to mainstream. Ranging from Olympic gold medalists to backhoe operators and converted skiers, locals contributed immensely to the development of the sport. Author Brian Knight details the birth, growth and development of a new worldwide sport from humble beginnings in southern Vermont."
Snowboarding In Southern Vermont is a detailed account of the pioneers who planted the seeds of a culture on the slopes of the Green Mountains which would grow to be a worldwide phenomena. Amongst the 208 pages are first hand accounts and insiteful observations of everything from the trials and tribulations of gaining resort access to the salad days of the US Open Snowboarding Championships. With archival photos and comprehensive storytelling Snowboarding In Southern Vermont is a must read for any rider curious about what it was like to be a shredder back in the day!
