The Burton Mountain Festival is set to take over the slopes of Mammoth Mountain with a host of free on-snow entertainment, good vibes, product giveaways and more on Friday, Jan. 10 through Sunday, Jan. 13.
Snowboarders can demo all the new Burton hard goods for free throughout the weekend from 8:30am to 4pm between Chairs 1 and 6 near Main Lodge. To test out equipment, bring your ID card and a credit card, and you must be 18 or have a parent present. Après entertainment will also take place throughout the three-day weekend, as well as tons of gear giveaways.
Young children can learn the basics of turning or how to slide beginner boxes in a safe environment within the Riglet Park any of the three days. This will be located between the Panorama Gondola and The Yodler. To register a young grom, parents must go to the Burton tent near Main Lodge.
More experienced snowboarders can compete in the "It’s Know Contest", which take place on Saturday in the Unbound Terrain Park. Impressive tricks will walk away with big prizes. To find out when the contest will take place, keep an eye out of the “Knowbuddy Crew” or inquire within the Burton tent.
