HANCOCK, Massachusetts ??” Jiminy Peak is excited to announce its new affiliation with Burton Snowboards. All of Jiminy’ Snowsports School programs including SKIWee and the GET Center will be Burton Learn to Ride centers. Jiminy Peak was chosen by Burton to become a Learn to Ride Center because of the teaching methods and techniques already in place at the resort. In addition to the Learn to Ride program, Jiminy Peak’s Rental Shops will now carry all Burton Snowboard gear. Burton’s Learn to Ride (LTR) and Cruiser boards are designed specifically for beginners and more advanced riders respectively.

Burton Snowboards was founded by Jake Burton in 1977 in Londonderry, VT and led the snowboarding industry to where it is today. Burton Snowboards is a rider driven company solely dedicated to creating the best snowboarding equipment on the planet.

Jiminy Peak is the largest ski and snowboard resort in Southern New England and the summer home of Mountain Adventure Park, featuring the all new Mountain Coaster. For more information visit www.jiminypeak.com.
