SNOW: Burton kick's off the Riglet Park Tour

Burton Announces Riglet Park Tour for Kids

This weekend, Burton will kick off the Riglet Park Tour, a four-stop mobile product demo and mini snowboard park designed to introduce kids as young as three to snowboarding. Hitting partner resorts in Vermont and Utah, the Burton Riglet Park tour offers snowboarding instruction and product demos to kids in a fun learning environment.

At Riglet Park Tour stops, kids can try out Burton’s revolutionary kids Learn To Ride (LTR) products and experience the Riglet Reel, a specially designed reel attached to the nose of youth snowboards. With the help of Burton’s Riglet Reel, instructors can tow kids onto features and around obstacles to introduce them to the fun of snowboarding. Also available to demo at the Riglet Park Tour are Burton LTR 80cm snowboards, Progression One-Strap bindings, Progression Velcro boots and Progression Youth helmets. Thanks to this incredible line-up of easy-to-ride gear, kids will be sliding a box, weaving around cones and jibbing in no time. 

At all of the Riglet Park Tour Stops, families will also get a chance to meet Olympic gold medalist and former Burton pro snowboarder, Ross Powers, who will be there to help kids make their first turns.
