Stash Parks - with the onus on using natural materials to built terrain parks rather than the more usual intensive mechanised construction work and high energy using snowmaking using - were created by Burton at select locations in Europe, North America and New Zealand some years ago.

The Stash Gatherings are open to all amateur snowboarders, these events award riders' flow and creativity on the unique obstacles of The Stash parks, developed upon terrain's natural features.

Registered riders will be divided into small groups and will ride through the Stash features accompanied by three judges. Composed of Burton team riders, pro-riders and local heroes, the judge crew will decide who will make it to the Youth, Women's and Men's Finals to battle for The Stash Gathering Champion title and product prizes.

BBQ and soft drinks will be offered to all participants during lunch break, no entrance fee is needed. Registration can be done onsite for both events until 10 am on the contest day, at the Stash Cabin in Avoriaz and at the Chill House in Flachauwinkl. Spots are limited to 40 participants and will be assigned on a first come first served basis. As for all Burton events, helmets are mandatory.
