VERNON, New Jersey ??” Mountain Creek is thrilled to announce the return of two national events, The Burton Super Demo and rail jam and the Mid- Atlantic Snowboard Series on February 24-26, 2006.

The Burton Super Demo is the largest product demo in the snowboard world and will be stopping at Mountain Creek Feb. 24-26 during their nationwide tour of ten resorts. Throughout the demo, guests will have the chance to test out custom gear for free, including Burton boards, boots and bindings. The sponsor village will also offer goods from participating sponsors including Snickers, Volvo, Motorola, Bluetooth technology, Paul Mitchell and Nintendo GS.

To kick off the demo, Burton will host a free on-snow jam session on Friday, February 24th for riders of all ability levels looking to test out their rail riding skills in a non-competitive atmosphere.

There will be great prizes and giveaways provided by Burton.
