The Burton Star Wars Snowboarding Experience
Burton Snowboards has teamed up with Sierra-At-Tahoe Resort to create the Burton Star Wars Experience, a park aimed at young snow sport enthusiasts who want to tame some gnarly drifts with Chewbacca and a bunch of Ewoks cheering them on.
The park features an area known as Yoda’s Riglet Park, which was created for kids as young as 3 to 6 to learn how to shred snow, and features some amazing chainsaw sculptures by Bob King. Here’s more about this kid friendly snow park:
“The Burton Star Wars Experience at Sierra gives kids as young as 3 the chance to successfully learn how to snowboard in a fun environment,” says Jeff Boliba, Burton’s Global Resort Director. “Yoda’s Riglet Park will combine Burton’s industry-leading Learn To Ride hardgoods, teaching systems and Riglet Park features with Jedi Master Yoda’s methods of balance, movement, and control. We are stoked to partner with Lucasfilm and Sierra to create this amazing experience for little groms.”
And if breaking the age barrier isn’t enough of a reason to lavish this park with kudos, all of the sculptures were made from fallen trees, and all metal used was made from recycled materials, so it’s an eco-friendly woodland park to boot! Yoda would be pleased…
