Burton Announces 2022 Global Schedule of New Burton Mystery Series – The Antidote to Snowboard Competitions Where an Open Mind is All You Need

This First-Ever Global Series of Snowboard Events will Uncover Unknown Riders and Build the Snowboard Community through Creativity, Self-Expression, and Good Times for All.

BURLINGTON, VT, March 23, 2022 – Burton is excited to announce the 2022 Spring schedule for its first-ever Mystery Series, a bold new global open-format event that’s unlike anything else in snowboarding, and the antidote to elite competitions. This inaugural series will feature nine events across the globe, bringing together riders of all ages and abilities under a shared love of snowboarding to showcase creativity, self-expression, and good times - all under a cloak of mystery.

“I’m really excited to be a part of the new Burton Mystery Series,” commented Burton Team Rider Zeb Powell. “It has been an awesome experience collaborating with the Burton team on a truly inclusive global concept. I really think it’s going to excite snowboarders of all levels.”

The Spring 2022 Burton Mystery Series schedule will kick off in March and wrap up in early May, with unique, inclusive, and engaging events taking place globally in Austria, China, France, Japan, Norway, Sweden, and the United States. Each competition will unveil different mysterious elements designed to surprise riders and ignite creativity. These events aren’t about winning, losing, or shiny medals. They have been developed so snowboarders have as much fun as possible, riding alongside friends and a few of the industry’s favorite pros, while progressing the sport in fun and unexpected ways. An open mind is all you need!
