23 years old Jake Burton Carpenter, who worked 12 to 14 hours a day, quit his job and started his first snowboarding company: Burton Snowboards (Burton).
Snowboarding was invented in the 1960s by an engineer named Sherman Poppen who tied two skis together and used the rope as a rudder.
Until the early 1980s, snowboarding was banned at winter resorts. In 1983-84, the first to allow snowboarding was Stratton Mountain Resort in Vermont.
Snowboarding brought in 30% of the resort's income. Snowboarding was officially included in the Winter Olympics in 1998, and more than five professional competitions are held annually in the United States.
The highest speed recorded during skiing was 249.5 km/h by Italian skier Simone Origone.
90-year-old skier George Jedenoff became the oldest person to climb Mont Blanc, the highest mountain in the Alps, setting a new world record.
