From Shasta's snow-capped rim to the Eastern Sierra's remote depths, the Burton Men's Tourist Snowboard Boot is your partner in crime for skinning up the biggest, baddest peaks, then charging down with equal parts precision and poise. Speed Zone lacing tightens the upper and lower separately, allowing you to fine-tune the flex for skinning up and charging bigger lines. Designed in conjunction with the split gurus at Spark R&D, the Tourist Boot serves up a medium-stiff flex that's ideal for ripping down steeps, arcing soulful carves, and precarious positions where jump turns are mandatory. Most impressive, it features the most negative flex of any boot in Burton's line for less energy expenditure on the skin track. It's packed with the thermally-activated warmth of DryRide Heat Cycle lining and Sleeping Bag Reflective Foil for maximum heat retention on those icy dawn patrols and frigid overnights in the backcountry. Newly developed for this season, the thermo-moldable Life liner is shared with Burton's legendary Ion Boot, delivering plush support and extra resistance to breakdown. The liner's PU-embedded tongue enhances energy transfer while preventing the boot from becoming noodly soft after a season's worth of backcountry excursions. Looking to the midsole, the low-profile, EST-optimized design creates better board feel without sacrificing vibration dampening, courtesy of its B3 Gel and ReBounce cushioning underfoot. And because it's meant for treacherous scrambles along knife edges and bootpacks up steep chutes, Burton equipped the Tourist with a Vibram EcoStep sole, complete with rubber Ice Spikes along the toe for mastering kick-steps into crusty snow.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
