Pants worn by Shaun White during the Red Bull Project X in Silverton, Colorado

Description (Brief)
These black lined snowboard pants were worn by Shaun White in 2009 while creating tricks for Olympic competition during the Red Bull Project X in Silverton, Colorado. When Shaun White turned 6 his family bought a van and spent every weekend skiing and snowboarding in the San Bernardino Mountains and sleeping in the van. By the age of 7 White was winning competitions and Burton Snowboards was his sponsor. White’s natural ability, hard work and dedication to the sport made him the most decorated athlete in X-Games history with 24 snowboarding and skateboarding medals combined, 15 of those are gold, the most in event history. At the 2012 Winter X-Games, he earned the only perfect score ever achieved in the Superpipe event, winning gold for the fifth consecutive time. White has won Olympic gold medals in the halfpipe event at the 2006 and 2010 Winter Games propelling the extreme sport of snowboarding into the mainstream.
