Mt. Hood, OR – The kick-off of the 2016 Burton Mountain Festival, an on-snow snowboarding demo tour with stops at eight resorts around the country this winter, is underway at Oregon’s Mount Hood Meadows this weekend. This year’s Burton Mountain Festival offers free Burton Snowboards hardgood demos, Anon helmet and goggle demos, a Riglet Park for kids, women’s ride days presented by BurtonGirls.com, an interactive sponsor village and more.
The Burton Mountain Festival gives riders of all ages the chance to try out Burton’s latest 2016 boards, boots and bindings all for free. This is the chance to demo new snowboarding hardgoods all weekend long from knowledgeable product experts who can give recommendations and answer riders’ tech questions.
At all festival stops this winter, Burton welcomes the ladies to the Burton Girls demo tent to talk one-on-one with female staff and find the perfect custom hardgoods package. This is the ideal opportunity to learn more about women’s-specific products, made for women by women, and then try it all out for free. The Burton Mountain Festival will also feature Girls Ride Days at select locations.
The Burton Mountain Festival also includes free youth demos and learn-to-ride opportunities. That means even the smallest kids can expect to find Burton snowboards, boots and bindings, as well as the revolutionary Riglet Reel, a specially designed reel attached to the nose of youth snowboards that makes learning to ride easier than ever. Kids as young as three-years-old will have the opportunity to experience snowboarding for the first time in the one-and-only Riglet Park as well as try out the boxes, ramps and rails with certified snowboard instructors on hand.
In the base area, Burton’s partner Paul Mitchell will be handing out free product samples, and hosting interactive games and photo opportunities at the Hawaiian-themed Paul Mitchell dome. Clif Bar will be handing out energy bar samples as well. And finally, Burton will be running a softgoods giveaway for the first 100 people to demo a full hardgoods setup.
