"This book has done a fine job capturing an important slice of snowboard history. The public got to see epic riding up close and even hang out and party with super star riders all before cell phones and pre internet. People met their life partners there, babies were conceived there and everyone always looked forward to seeing the progression of the sport happen right there at Stratton every March." Chris Copley

"I wanted to take a minute and plug my old high school history teacher's Brian Knight book here for all my Stratton friends. I just finished it and it is an incredible lens on the history of Stratton and snowboarding through the lens of the evolution of the U.S. Open at Stratton and the rise of Burton Snowboards. Highly recommend you pick up a copy." Jack "Doc" Simon
"Snowboarding got its start in Vermont, where Jake Burton Carpenter first began crafting boards and convinced Stratton Mountain to let people ride there. If you want to dive into the rise of snowboarding in southern Vermont and why it’s stuck, this book is for you. It’s an entertaining read and a thorough look at the characters, inventions and stories that made snowboarding what it is today." Vermont Sports Magazine, January-February 2019
"“Snowboarding in Southern Vermont” is a quick read that establishes the record of snowboarding’s early days there and we should be thankful that this record is now public for all."
