Today, riders around the world can get in The Liftline at www.theliftline.tvhttp://www.theliftline.tv> , the newest and most comprehensive source for Burton team news and video. The Liftline is a brand new online forum for snowboarders to connect with Burton pro riders on a whole other level, through a constant stream of new team video and editorial content.

I’m sure there will be a learning curve, but it feels like a solid direction.”
 
To cover all the best action and latest news from the Burton team, The Liftline features six different shows that will be updated as the happenings happen. Here’s a quick look at the shows featured on www.theliftline.tv <http://www.theliftline.tv>

  • Snow Porn: Traditional snowboard action footage

  • Bangers & Mash: Bails, crashes, falls – what it really takes to get video parts
