Burton Snowboards Debut The Stash at The Remarkables New Zealand

Burton Snowboards and The Remarkables Alpine Park in the South Island of New Zealand announced the development of The Stash®, a completely different kind of run that adds a new dimension to snowboarding.

Scheduled to open for the 2008 Southern Hemisphere winter season, The Stash at The Remarkables is only the third run of its kind worldwide and the first in the Southern Hemisphere.

Created by Jake Burton and the Burton team riders, The Stash is an evolution of freestyle terrain in the ultimate natural environment. The kilometer long run provides riders with an organic, big mountain terrain park that follows the natural lines of the mountain.

Riders will discover rock-wall rides, log jibs, cliff drops, a stone hut and other one-of-a-kind obstacles hidden away in The Stash run. An all-natural environment, The Stash uses no metal or plastics to create obstacles, only stone, wood, dirt and rocks. Even the signs that direct riders to The Stash are hand carved out of stone and wood and are designed to be jibbed.

“No two runs on The Stash are the same, every time you drop in you get a completely new riding experience,” says Jeff Boliba, Global Resort Director at Burton. “Jake and our team developed The Stash with The Remarkables because we have always shared the common goal of taking snowboarding to the next level”.

“What we have created with The Stash is a totally different experience that has all of the makings for an awesome ride with plenty of opportunity for getting creative with each run,” said Ross Lawrence, Manager for The Remarkables. “Our well developed park system has already made The Remarkables a firm favorite with snowboarders, and the addition of The Stash will only make us more of a destination for snowboarders worldwide.”

Located in the bowls of Serpentine and the Galleries trails, The Stash is aimed at intermediate and advanced riders. The Stash can also be found in Avoriaz, France and Northstar-at-Tahoe, USA.

The Stash at The Remarkables is scheduled to open in July, 2008.
