The following is a quick overview of the 2022 Burton snowboards lineup.
First I will take a look at any new boards for the 2021-22 season, and any old 2020-21 boards that aren't returning with a 2022 model.
Then I'll place each board into the categories where I see them fitting best.

All 2022 Burton Snowboards by Category
Below I have categorized Burton's 2021-22 collection. This is according to the categories here at SnowboardingProfiles.com and not necessarily the same as how Burton might label them.
Of course these are only broad categories as every board is different, but this is a rough guide.
BURTON BEGINNER SNOWBOARDS
BURTON PARK/FREESTYLE SNOWBOARDS
BURTON ALL-MOUNTAIN-FREESTYLE SNOWBOARDS
BURTON AGGRESSIVE ALL-MTN-FREESTYLE SNOWBOARDS
BURTON ALL-MOUNTAIN SNOWBOARDS
BURTON AGGRESSIVE ALL-MOUNTAIN SNOWBOARDS
BURTON FREERIDE SNOWBOARDS
BURTON POWDER & SHORT/WIDE SNOWBOARDS
BURTON SPLIT BOARDS
BURTON YOUTH SNOWBOARDS
So there you have the 2022 Burton snowboards.
Out with the Old
As is typical with Burton, the Family Tree sees a lot of comers and goers - but this year there are a lot more comers.
Whilst the Family Tree collection has expanded, the more freestyle focused boards have contracted, with the ousting of the Custom Twin Off-Axis, Paramount, Descendant and Name Dropper. The Paramount is replaced, but the others are clean dumps.
The Day Trader and Kilroy Pow also exit. The Mystery Skeleton Key is gone too - but that's expected as the Mystery model changes every year.
In with the New
5 new family tree models come in, one being a splitboard, and one a mystery model, replacing the 2 leavers. Then 3 more family models - the 3D Daily Driver, 3D Deep Daze and 3D Double Dog were late 2021 releases. The other 3D (the Fish 3D) model was also a late 2021 Release.
Then there's the Blossom, which largely replaces the outgoing Paramount, and the new freeride model, the Cartographer.
The Instigator also gets a PurePop version, whilst still retaining the flat top version.
I was able to test a good number of 2022 Burton boards and I'll release my reviews for those throughout the year. For all Snowboarding Profiles' Burton reviews check out the link at the button below.
