Just for the record, I am not a Burton hater or a Burton supporter. I am fairly neutral. I will acknowledge they have done great things for the progression of the sport (especially in the early years). I look at snowboard brands kind of like alcoholic drinks. Everybody has their favorite. Doesen't mean one is better then the other. It's all personal taste and the end result is the same, you get drunk! Just like snowboards, it's all personal taste and the end result is the same, you get on the mountain and shred.
I just happened to make a casual observation which sparked a curisoty. Hence why I decided to run it by all you guys to see if it is the same everywhere? I hear all the time how Burton is the top dog but it just wasen't present during my observation. Which is also why I asked to see what you guys are noticing on your mountains.
This was by no means a serious study. If it was I would have taken samples from different mountains and at different times of the year.
All this was was a light hearted question sparked by curiosity during a casual observation.
