Check out the world premiere of Bald E-Gal’s latest flick, Ground Control this Saturday at Pioneer Place in St. Cloud, MN. Representing Burton in the flick will be the homies Shane Ruprecht and Ryan Barker. These guys have been hustling hard over the past year to bring the best Midwest has to offer and we’re sure this video will be nothing short of a banger.
For just $5 you also get to check out the latest offering from Videograss, The Last Ones. Two Showings – 7PM and 9PM, so there’s no excuse to miss it.
One last chance at getting some riding in for the season (short of a trip to Hood). Tyrol Basin’s Spring Jam always offers up a lot of fun, a great and innovative park set up and judging by the amount of snow they had at their End of Season Bash, a chairlift this year. Competitions begin at 11:00 on Saturday.
This weekend, we’re teaming up with Mt. LaCrosse for AJ’s Throwdown Rail Jam. Check out their all new park features and win some great prizes. We’ll be on site with a ton of demo boards and our Mobile Riglet Park where your groms can try out snowboarding for free! Check the flyer for more details.
Burton’s Chill Foundation helps underprivileged youths all over the country find snowboarding and learn life skills that last much longer than the program itself. If you can’t get out to the hill to volunteer, the next best thing you can do is come out to The Big Chill fundraiser on Wednesday, March 13th at Sully’s House in Chicago. A $35 donation at the door gets you an all you can drink pass from 7-11 and entry into a raffle to take home prizes including Burton snowboards and lift tickets. Peep the above flyer for more details.
