Burton Presents: Rope Tow

You can’t begin to think of Midwest snowboarding without the use of rope tows popping into your head. Aptly named, Burton’s Rope Tow edit encompasses this good ‘ole fashioned method of getting up the mountain on a little tour they did “up north”.

None other than Ethan Deiss and Shane Ruprecht make all the Minnesota stops, including Hyland Hills, Afton Alps, and Buck Hill. Then they make their way to Trollhaugen in Wisconsin to show off their creative skill set, take advantage of some night snowboarding, and enjoy a little apres. Midwest accents, beer foam, cheese curds, and two a.m. Snapchats included.
