Diamond Peak and Burton Snowboards are combining efforts to get new people on boards. Burton chose Diamond Peak as one of two locations in North America for the program. 

Diamond Peak plans to put an increased emphasis on their Burton Learn To Ride Center and progression programs. Two Burton Learn To Ride weeks will be held Jan. 11-15 and March 8-12. 

Guests can buy a first-time Learn To Ride package for $29. The package includes a beginner lift ticket, Burton Progression equipment, and a 105-minute lesson. The package is available to those ages 7 and up.

Diamond Peak will be featuring the Burton Jiblet series this winter. The competition is for intermediate and advanced freestyle riders of all ages. Riders can showcase their best tricks in a jam-style format, and contestants will win cash and other great prizes for the best riders in the open division.

Diamond Peak will offer a Burton Powder Clinic from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. every time Diamond Peak reports 12 inches of new snow.

Free clinics, taught by Diamond Peak's Burton Learn To Ride coaches, will be offered on select weekends with the use of Burton Progression gear. These specialty clinics will focus on all mountain, terrain parks and carving, and will be taught by Diamond Peak's Burton Learn To Ride coaches.

"We are really excited to take our partnership with Burton to the next level, and pleased that they have chosen Diamond Peak as a marketing partner to increase participation in winter sports," said Carl Hill Director of the Diamond Peak Ski and Snowboard School.
