Waterville Valley, NH – Waterville Valley Resort announces the 2016 Burton Mountain Festival on-snow demo tour coming February 13-15, 2016. The most anticipated traveling snowboard demo series of the year offers demos, a Riglet Park for kids, women’s ride days presented by BurtonGirls.com, an interactive sponsor village and more. The 3-day event is completely free and open to the public.
“Burton is pioneer and an important part of the snowsports industry,” said Marketing Director Matt Hesser. “It’s exciting to see our partnership with them grow as it has this year with lots of new equipment for our guests here on the mountain. The Mountain Festival is an opportunity for us to show off how great their products are for riders of all ages and skill levels.”
Even the smallest kids can expect to find Burton snowboards, boots and bindings sized just for them, 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 located at Waterville Valley Resort, as well as access to entry level snowboard park features including boxes, ramps and rails with certified snowboard instructors on hand. The Burton Girls demo tent 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.
There will also be special setups and giveaways from tour sponsors like Paul Mitchell, Ski-Doo, Clif Bar & Company, BurtonGirls.com, Snowboarder Magazine, and Chill for their support of the Burton Mountain Festival.
