Burton Celebrates The Opening Of The Newest Stash Park At Jackson Hole

Comments by Chris Owen/

Burton Snowboards held a small event last weekend in Jackson Hole to celebrate the opening of its newest Stash Park.

Danny Davis, Stephan Maurer, Natasza Zurek and Gabi Viteri all came together in Jackson to ride some pow and try out the new Stash parks. The Stash is a more organic type of snowboard park, one that's built in the woods rather than on open runs. It pays homage to where freestyle riding really began — in the forest. The obstacles make use of the kind of natural features you would find just cruising through the woods.

There are four Stashes spread across the mountain at Jackson Hole. Ashley Flats, considered the 'Lil Stash; Deer Flats, which includes Jussi's flying wall ride, the rollercoaster and Spinning tree stump; Ashley Ridge, which has a triple pillow built in to it; and the Campground, which includes the Gong, Dancefloor and Casper's quarter pipe.

The Jackson park is the sixth Stash park opened by Burton over the last few years. Other locations include Northstar-at-Tahoe, CA; Killington, VT; Remarkables in New Zealand; Avoriaz, France and Flachauwinkl, Austria.

Special thanks go out to Burton, Jackson Hole resort and the Grand Teton Mountain Lodge.
