Sierra-at-Tahoe Resort Introduces The Burton Star Wars Experience

Dec 19th 2011

Star Wars Burton park at Sierra-at-TahoeYoda, R2-D2, C-3PO, Chewbacca, Jar Jar Binks, Anakin Skywalker, Ewoks… Getting excited yet? Sierra-at-Tahoe Resort is stoked to partner with industry leader Burton Snowboards and Lucasfilm Ltd. to bring our guests the worlds ONLY Burton Star Wars Experience.

You may be asking yourself what the heck does Star Wars have to do with snowboarding? Well, Sierra will utilize iconic Star Wars themes and characters throughout the snowboard learning process to engage and entertain three to six year olds or “younglings” throughout the snowboard learning experience.

Learning to snowboard at Sierra Resort is no longer about falling down or wondering when the next hot chocolate break is. Instead, using the latest technology from Burton called the Riglet Reel - a specially designed reel that attaches to the nose of youth snowboards and allows coaches to tow kids around allowing them to quickly learn how to balance, move, and control their boards – and Jedi training methods kids will enjoy being outside and learning how to stand sideways.

To say that we are excited about this is a large understatement. We are ecstatic about offering kids an opportunity to get outside, learn to snowboard, and interact with Jedi’s, droid’s, wookiees, and other Star Wars characters.

The experience is truly out of this world. Come check it out and may the force be with you.
