On March 13, Copper Mountain Ski Resort — alongside 12 other resorts worldwide — will celebrate the life and legacy of Jake Burton Carpenter during the Global Day of Snowboarding. Carpenter – the founder of Burton – made waves in the industry in 1977 when he created the brand in a barn in Vermont. He passed away this last November after a battle with cancer.
