TheGoodLife! Presents: Burton Snowboards Winter 2016 Launch

TheGoodLife! x Burton Winter 2016 Launch NYCMuch like how our annual TheGoodLife! x Burton party at Milk Studios is the official launch of Summer, our annual movie premiere x rager with Burton is definitely the official launch of winter. This year just might have been the best yet! With nearly 800 shred heads packed into Brooklyn Bowl plus snowboard royalty Danny Davis, Mark McMorris, Kimmy Fasani, Kelly Clark, Zak Hale, Ethan Deiss, Ben Ferguson, and Jack Mitrani on hand for the madness, we premiered The Best of Burton Presents while sipping on Pacifico to the sounds of DJ’s Uncle Mike, Soul, and the one and only Questlove. If you can’t imagine how rad it was, scroll down for a gallery from Peter Pábon. See you in the mountains!
