BURTON SNOWBOARDS BRINGS THE STASH TO KILLINGTON RESORT

BURLINGTON, VT — Burton Snowboards and Killington Resort today announced plans to build The Stash®, a revolutionary resort run created by Jake Burton and Burton team riders that utilizes the natural terrain, local wood products and organic features to create the ultimate freestyle riding experience. The first run of its kind in New England and Burton’s home state of Vermont, The Stash at Killington is slated to open to the public on December 19, 2008.

“Bringing the Stash to Vermont has been an objective from the start,” says Jake Burton, Founder and Chairman of Burton Snowboards. “Vermont riders are all about tree riding and jibs. This will take it to the next level, giving local riders a chance to have that much more fun on the mountain.”

Located at the Bear Mountain area of Killington and accessible by the new Skye Peak Express high-speed quad chairlift, The Stash will be a half-mile long run that features wooded glades, banked turns, log slides and pillow lines. The Stash at Killington will also feature a street-style wooden staircase and a jibbable fence. A classic Vermont sugar shack cabin that can be jibbed or jumped will reside at The Stash at Killlington. Inside the sugar shack, riders can check out a timeline of snowboarding history in Vermont along with vintage snowboard gear and photos.

Burton pro snowboarder and Lincoln, Vermont native Yale Cousino is working with Burton and Killington on design ideas for The Stash. Snow Park Technologies, an industry leader in terrain park development, is also adding its expertise to the design and construction of The Stash. Features for The Stash are built with local and organic materials like rocks, stumps and logs. By using local trees and natural elements on the trail, The Stash is designed to limit the impact on the environment.

“We are extremely pleased to work with Burton on this project and offer our guests the opportunity to experience The Stash at Killington,” said Chris Nyberg, president and general manager of Killington Resort. “The organic nature of The Stash also aligns with our company’s environmental initiatives.”

Michael Bettera of Snow Park Technologies had this to say, “I am excited to be working on The Stash project at Killington. With the resort’s deep snowboarding history, close proximity to Burton and the gnarly glade terrain, The Stash at Killington will stand out as a premier riding location.”

The Stash is part of more than $8.4 million in on-mountain improvements that will debut at the largest ski and snowboard resort in the east for the 2008/09 season. Other improvements include the new Skye Peak Express; a new Magic Carpet, for skiers and riders in Killington’s first-time Ski and Snowboard School programs and the Burton Learn to Ride program; a new beginner trail off Skye Peak; snowmaking improvements; and expanded environmental initiatives, including offsetting 100 percent of the resort’s electric usage through Renewable Energy Credits.

The Stash at Killington Resort is the fifth run of its kind worldwide and the first in the Northeast. The Stash can also be found at Northstar-at-Tahoe, USA; Avoriaz, France; The Remarkables, New Zealand and Flachauwinkl Resort, Austria. For more information, visit www.thestash.com
