VERNON, New Jersey — With the season in high gear, Mountain Creek will once again host two national events in one weekend, the Burton Super Demo and Mid-Atlantic Snowboard Series on February 23-25.

The Burton Super Demo, the largest product demo in the snowboard world featuring 10 weekend-long events across the U.S., will land at Mountain Creek Feb. 23-25. The Demo Tour will give riders of all ages the opportunity to try out the hottest Burton boards, boots and bindings for men, women, girls and boys at no cost. A dedicated Super Stop sponsor village will have a huge array of new products for riders to try out and win free gear from Motorola, Volvo XC90 SUV, Nintendo’s Wii and Nintendo DS gaming systems; Paul Mitchell haircare products, GORE-TEX?В® fabric featuring Burton’s line of GORE-TEX?В® outerwear; R.E.D. helmets and Anon goggles and sunglasses.

To kick off the demo, Burton will host a free on-snow jam session on Friday, February 23th for riders of all ability levels looking to throw down their rail riding skills in a non-competitive atmosphere. On-site registration will run from 10-11am in the Tubing Room at near Cobblestone Village at the Vernon base. The event will start at 11am and will be held in the Main Park at Vernon. Great prizes and giveaways will be provided by Burton.

For skiers and riders who are interested in a more competitive venue, Mountain Creek will also set the stage for the USASA supported Mid-Atlantic Snowboard Series, February 24th. This slopestyle competition will be held for riders trying to increase their point totals en-route the 2006 USASA Nationals in Northstar at Tahoe, CA. While skiers will not be competing for the Nationals, they are encouraged to join in the event.

The series will include a slopestyle competition held on Independence Trail on Saturday, February 24th. Participants may pre-register at www.active.com or register the day of the event in Tubing room located at the Vernon Base area’s Cobblestone Village from 7:30-8:30am.
