Burton Test Ride
The Burton Test Ride is the foundation of the Burton Mountain Festival. Burton will have the entire 2012 hardgoods line on hand and available to try at no charge. Riders will have the opportunity to try out a variety of boards, boots and bindings to get the feel of their ultimate set-up.
The Burton Mountain Festival stop at Killington Resort will feature a Pro-Test event held in The Stash. Pro-Test is an amateur snowboard competition for men and women featuring halfpipe and slopestyle contests with a total prize purse of $7,000. Riders can also win four wildcard spots to compete in the US Open prequalifiers and Pro-Test events are 4Star TTR World Snowboard Tour events.
Burton Riglet Park
For the youngest riders, the Burton Mountain Festival will also feature a Burton Riglet Park where kids as young as three can try out snowboarding for FREE. Burton will provide snowboards, boots and bindings sized for the smallest of riders to borrow at no charge. Kids will also be able to try out Burton’s revolutionary Riglet Reel, a specially designed reel attached to the nose of youth snowboards that makes learning easier than ever. Certified snowboard instructors will be on hand to help kids learn to ride on mini-features like boxes, ramps and rails.
Apres Events & Live Music
What would a snowboard festival be without great après? The Burton Mountain Festival will be a weekend full of great parties and live music. Check back for more details as they become available.
