SNOWBOARDING 101 – JUST THE BASICS
to snowboard can be pretty challenging. But when you get it, the
struggle to learn will be worth it. The most important thing is to take
it one step at a time and be patient with yourself. You’ll get it, and
most likely, you’ll love it.
To ensure a good first day on the hill, be sure to take a lesson to
learn the basics: how to get on and off a lift, how to fall and how to
turn and stop. Snowboarding can be challenging at first. Stick with it
and you’ll be ripping in no time.
LTR PROGRAMS Burton has created a whole program and
product line, Learn To Ride, dedicated to teaching men, women and kids
of all ages how to ride. Our Learn To Ride program incorporates
learning-specific equipment, small class sizes and knowledgeable
instructors to make learning to snowboard easy, painless and fun for
everyone. Much like riding a bike, once snowboarding clicks in your
head, it is something you will have forever.
LTR GEAR Together, Burton and snowboard instructors
worldwide developed the Learn to Ride gear to make learning to
snowboard easy...and fun! The result is boards, boots and bindings
designed specifically for beginners and their needs. The LTR board,
boots and bindings are available at all our Learn to Ride Centers.
LTR CENTERS Many resorts offer LTR equipment, but a few
select locations have stepped up to become true Learn To Ride Centers,
where the instruction program is first-rate, and the tactics used are
the most effective anywhere. Burton works closely with these resorts to
make sure that they provide the best learning environment possible. The
key to good instruction is individual attention and maintaining a low
student-to-instructor ratio. There are LTR Centers specifically
designed for kids, women and freestyle riding. For a complete breakdown
of LTR Center locations, visit www.Burton.com.
Kids’ LTR With a low student-to-teacher ratio and fun
activities like balance board training, we make it easy to figure out
the basics and boost your confidence. And with specially designed kids’
gear, groms get every advantage possible to take their skills to the
Women’s LTR We work with cutting-edge resorts to ensure
that women have the best snowboarding experience possible. These
programs include smaller classes, personal attention and knowledgeable
instructors that cater to women’s learning styles.
LTR Freestyle Centers We know the park and pipe can look
intimidating. That’s why we’ve teamed up with resorts that offer mellow
freestyle features, highly skilled instructors and freestyle-specific
gear that makes learning tricks safe and fun for everyone. You’ll be
going trick for trick with your buddies in no time.
SMART STYLE Smart Style is all about making sure everyone
has a fun and safe terrain park experience. Everyone gets stoked on
riding parks and pipes, but getting cut off, snaked or injured just
plain sucks. Burton urges riders of all ages to take a look at the
orange oval Smart Style signs posted at the entrance of most terrain
Let me ask you something I'd like to buy a T6 162, and in the Burton site they say that it needs Bindings size Medium. I use Large ones (my Vans are #10) And I wanna know if it's possible to use a pair of Large Cartel on it Thanks fede
