Burton Mountain Festival-March 16-18

Hunter Mountain hosts the Burton Mountain Festival. Burton will be on site with the Test Ride program. Test Ride is where virtually the entire 2012 Burton hardgoods line will be on tap for riders to test at absolutely no charge. Riders can try out a variety of boards, boots and bindings to get a feel for their ultimate set-up.

For the youngest riders, we will feature a Burton Riglet Park where kids as young as three can try out snowboarding for FREE. Burton will provide snowboards, boots and bindings sized for the smallest kids to borrow at no charge. Kids will also be able to try out Burton’s revolutionary Riglet Reel, a specially designed reel attached to the nose of youth snowboards that makes learning easier than ever. And certified snowboard instructors will help kids learn to ride on mini features like boxes, ramps and rails.

Hunter Mountain Goes Pink in Support of the Shred the Love Campaign

Hunter Mountain will be “going pink” for the week of February 27th through March 4th in an effort to support fundraising and awareness through the Shred the Love Campaign and Boarding for Breast Cancer (B4BC). Throughout the week, guests of Hunter Mountain will have the opportunity to add $1 or more to their lift ticket purchase, as well as purchase various B4BC merchandise. The proceeds will go to help fund breast cancer research, awareness and prevention. On March 3rd through 4th, B4BC’s Check One, Two® traveling outreach group will be on-site providing peer-to-peer breast health education and preventative information.

B4BC is a non-profit organization founded to advocate early detection and a healthy active lifestyle as the best means of breast cancer prevention. The Shred the Love Campaign, originated by B4BC seeks to unite the board sport community through this message. The campaign has doubled in size in its second year, and mountain resorts, campuses and community organizations across the country are hosting events and fundraising activities to help spread the message and raise funds to support the efforts in awareness and prevention of breast cancer.

“We here at Hunter really understand and support B4BC’s message of a healthy, active winter lifestyle,” explains Gerry Tschinkel, Hunter Mountain’s Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “We are happy to show our support to such a great organization with a very important message, while encouraging people to ride.”

Thursday's a Snow Day in Union Square, NYC!

New York Ski Areas Bring Snow to Union Square
Thursday, February 9, 2012

Residents of New York are invited to enjoy a winter wonderland and explore some of the exhilarating winter activities that New York State has to offer!

The Olympic Regional Development Authority (ORDA), Ski Areas of New York (SANY), and I Love New York are bringing in tons of snow to Union Square to remind New Yorkers that the mountains of New York are covered with fresh and man-made snow. This snow day, Thursday, February 9th, is being hosted to encourage New Yorkers to get out and enjoy the outdoors during the winter months.

New Yorkers are invited to come out and enjoy the snow and learn about New York State's winter destinations from downhill and cross-country skiing to snowmobiling, ziplining, snowshoeing and more.

ORDA will be trucking in and blowing tons of fresh snow, utilizing the latest snow-making technology to create this incredible winter wonderland. This Union Square event will feature:
• Burton Riglet Park, where children ages three to six can test ride snowboards and learn the basics of snowboarding; instructors will tow kids on snow features and around obstacles to introduce them to the fun of snowboarding.
• Fresh from receiving a bronze medal for his video part in Winter X Games Real Snow, professional snowboarder Pat Moore will be on-site to talk about snowboarding. Pat holds "Highest Air" honors in the quarterpipe at the Oakley Stylemasters in China, the Abominable Snow Jam and the U.S. Open. Flying in style won him "Best Trick" for a massive 20-foot McTwist at the Arctic Challenge.
• Red Bull’s street team will be giving away a pair of custom skis, movies, shirts, and more.
• Skiing and snowboarding experts from ORDA, I LOVE NY, SANY/I SKI NY, Hunter, Gore, Whiteface, Windham, Belleayre and Mountain Creek will be available to talk about the quality and technological advances of snowmaking, New York’s 50-plus ski destinations and New York’s winter activities across the state.
