Boyne Highlands announces the return of the annual Burton Mountain Festival on-snow demo tour on February 19-21, 2016. The most anticipated traveling snowboard demo series of the year 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 three-day event is completely free and open to the public.
Every winter, the Burton Mountain Festival offers the most extensive snowboard demo experience in North America and 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 at Boyne Highlands Resort all weekend long from knowledgeable product experts who can give recommendations and answer riders' tech questions.
At all stops, Burton warmly welcomes the ladies to the Burton Girls demo tent to talk one-on-one with female staff and find the perfect custom hardgoods package tailored to their riding style and ability. 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.
There's also something for the whole family at the Burton Mountain Festival, including free youth demos and learn to ride opportunities. That means 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 Boyne Highlands, as well as access to entry level snowboard park features including boxes, ramps, and rails with certified snowboard instructors on hand.
Not to be missed at the Burton Mountain Festival is the sponsor village area with free product samples, interactive games and photo opportunities at the Hawaiian-themed Paul Mitchell dome. Also be sure to stop by the Clif Bar & Company booth for a sample of one of their great-tasting energy bars and for the first 100 people who demo a full hardgoods setup, Burton is providing a giveaway.
