The Burton Mountain FestivalKatie Tyler, January 7, 2016 in Events, New Northstar, Winter in Tahoe
Snowboarding, snowboarding and more snowboarding! If you have been looking for a reason to try your skills at snowboarding, Northstar has something for you this weekend.
The Burton Mountain Festival is part of an eight resort tour. Northstar is the 2nd stop for this extensive and interactive snowboard demo experience in North America and features something for all ages and a chance to meet some of the best riders in the business.
Friday through Saturday Burton will be offering free demo gear at the top of the Big Springs Gondola. For the little ones in the family, the Burton team will also be offering free snowboard instruction in Riglet Park.
The veteran snowboarders will want to check out Bash at the Stash. To celebrate 10 years of “The Stash” (an all-natural terrain park that weaves through the forest by the Zephyr chair) there will be “The Stash Gathering” on January 9th. Everyone is invited to join in the Stash Run for Craig Kelley at 11am on Saturday for a group ride through the Stash to end at the CK Cabin.
From 1am – 3pm on Saturday is the Burton Qualifiers competition where 100 riders will compete for a chance to win cash prizes. The format is a two division (15 & under and open) 1 hour per heat showcase. Participants and spectators alike will appreciate this event.
