Craig Burbank presents the Powder Express bus. As artist to the Pineapple Express bus (2016), Craig’s intention was to create a ‘sister’ bus. Craig felt the Mountain Express needed to add a ski bus to their fleet. Therefore he created a bus design incorporating not only skiers, but snowmobilers, ufo references, as well as winter wildlife to a vibrant winter mountain sunset.
