Introducing Drift X Mine 77
We are beyond excited to announce our collaboration with Mine 77, the personal brand of Jake Burton Carpenter, snowboarding pioneer and founder of Burton Snowboards.
Here's what Jake had to say about Drift boards:
"Back before snowboarders were allowed on lifts, it was just you, your friends, and plenty of powder. That’s the soul of this sport for me, and in many ways, nothing’s changed. To this day, some of my best turns were the ones I earned and, in my opinion, these approach “skeez” we designed with Drift are the best way up the mountain. On the climb, they function like a splitboard with grippy skins on the bottom, a binding that hinges at the toe, and heel elevators to keep you level and comfortable. When it’s time to ride, you can jump right into your powder board of choice with your favorite boots. Strap the skeez right to your pack—they’re so light you won’t even notice. Any board carry straps will do but check out the skee-carry system I designed on the Mine77 Touring Pack—it carries them perfectly. Oh, and don’t make the same mistake as me—get yourself some good collapsible poles."

Redefining Backcountry Travel
Call it an approach ski. Or the modern snowshoe. Either way, Drift boards are an entirely new creature, combining the best elements of touring skis and snowshoes to create an ultra-efficient tool for traveling through snow. Learn more.
"Snowshoes. Splitboards. Cross country skis. They all have their drawbacks when heading into the backcountry. Drift Boards borrow elements from each to give you the best way to reach remote powder."
