Greg Dacyshyn, Senior Vice President of Creative at Burton, says, “The inspiration behind the U.S. Snowboarding Team outerwear for the 2010 Olympics is classic Americana,”. “Although we are creating a uniform, our first objective is to express the individuality of snowboarding. As such, we are taking vintage American looks and interpreting them in a very unique and unexpected fashion. Finally, we will ensure that all of the highest technical attributes are maintained in the pieces, so that performance and function are not jeopardized. The result will be a progressive and fresh look that challenges the former conservatism of the Olympics.

Does anyone know what the U.S. Ski Teams Uniform looks like? All I've found is this...

ST. PAUL, Minn. (May 15) - Thinsulate™ Insulation recently announced its commitment to a four-year sponsorship agreement as an official supplier to the U.S Alpine Ski Team and the U.S. Disabled Ski Team through the 2010-2011 race season.

Thinsulate insulation, in conjunction with Spyder Active Sports, the official uniform and outerwear supplier to the U.S. Ski Team, will be the featured insulation material used within the Team's official uniform collection. The Spyder and Thinsulate insulation logos will appear on the Team's racing uniforms as well as additional uniforming.

Thinsulate insulation and Spyder, in effect, co-sponsor the patch that appears on the left sleeve of all alpine race suits. The Thinsulate insulation patch will also appear on the outerwear, jackets and competition suits for team athletes, staff, trustees and sponsors of the U.S Ski Team."

Here's hoping that it has the a similar style (I know they are "skiers" but what about the Freestyle Team?)and steeze factor as the Snowboarding Team's uniform.
