A directional utility tool designed to unlock the full spectrum of freeride terrain. An offspring of a one-night stand between the Con Artist and Flight Attendant, the Burton Skeleton Key has quickly become a staple in the quivers of our testers and team riders. From Japan-deep pow to Mount Baker’s legendary banks, this uniquely hard-charging directional shape fuses camber with a slightly increased waist width that carves like a knife.

Graphic Story: Once again, veteran Burton photographer Dean “Blotto” Gray’s pristine landscapes serve as the graphics for the Family Tree lineup, with tonal imagery shot right here in our home state of Vermont.
Directional Camber : Tapered directional shape with entry rocker causing the nose to lift while camber under both feet maintains momentum and stability through deep driving turns and variable conditions.
SHAPE: Directional : The classic snowboard shape. Designed to be ridden with a slightly longer nose than tail to concentrate pop in the tail while still giving you plenty of float, flow and control to rip any terrain or conditions.
[10MM Taper] The 10 mm of taper lets the board dive into turns while releasing super smooth.
Core: FSC™ Certified Super Fly II™ 700G Core. Stronger and lighter woods target specific areas of the core to provide pop, strength and reduced weight.
Dualzone™ EGD™. the wood grain is positioned along the toe and heel edges to two continuous zones, perpendicular to the rest of the wood core, for consistent edge hold and added strength.
Squeezebox : The most versatile squeezebox profile improves pop and performance through the balance of thicker, more powerful core sections with thinner, more flexible sections. Rider energy is transferred outward from beneath the feet, energizing the tip and tail while making the board snappier, more stable and easier to manipulate.
Triax : Versatile flex and response for everything from mini to mega shred.
Super Sap® Epoxy
Recycled Sintered WFO : infusing a specially formulated wax deep into the pores of this extra absorbent high density sintered material results in a ultra durable base that stays wide f#$@ing open all season in any condition.
All Family Tree models feature Sintered WFO base made with recycled industrial materials that would otherwise be incinerated.
