Killington Resort is proud to announce that the Burton Super Demo Tour is rolling into the Beast of the East March 12 to 14, just in time for the Burton Stash Gathering, an event designed to encompass the spirit and attitude of snowboarding.
During the Burton Super Demo Tour, guests will be able to ride the latest 2010 Burton snowboards, bindings and boots free of charge, including the new EST boards, which are designed to offer a closer connection between the rider’s movement and the snow. Riders will also enjoy Burton giveaways, sponsored after-parties, and the opportunity to speak with Burton experts to find the perfect board, stance, and gear for their style.
To celebrate Burton’s contribution to snowboarding, Killington will be hosting the Burton Stash Gathering on Saturday, March 13, where snowboarders will showcase their riding ability on the natural features of the Burton-designed Stash terrain park. Riders will be rewarded for picking the best lines and nailing the best tricks on rock jibs, log rides, rainbow trees, giant Shreddies and jibbable buildings.
Registration is only $30 and includes a free competitor bar-b-que lunch at the Sugar Shack. Divisions include men’s and women’s Open, and Groms (16 and under).
