BOLTON VALLEY, Vt. (Feb. 26, 2013) – From March 1-10 at Bolton Valley, just 30 minutes from Burlington and Montpelier, skiers and riders can finally attempt any trick they like in the park without worrying about whether or not their huck has gone bad. The US Airbag softens that blow by allowing skiers and riders to land in a giant, inflatable airbag, giving tricksters an opportunity to try new tricks and perfect their park and aerial skills.
Founded in 2009, US Airbag is on its 2012-2013 Winter Demo Tour, offering guests a new progression method for learning aerial maneuvers and freefall “hucks” before attempting tricks without a soft landing area.
Guests at Bolton Valley can register online or in person for the day of their choice. The cost is $10/3 jumps; $25/10 jumps; or $45 for 25 jumps. All participants must also have a Bolton Valley lift ticket for the day or a valid season pass.
The US Airbag will be available on the following dates and times:
Friday, March 1: 9am – 6pm
Saturday, March 2: 9am – 6pm
Sunday, March 3: 9am – 4pm
Monday, March 4: 9am – 4pm
