…Burton wants you to steal the slopes?

Sabotage StupidityIf you’re in Mad River Glen, VT, Deer Valley, UT, Alta, UT, or Taos, NM, you’re not allowed on the slopes unless you can separate your skis.

That’s because these four ski resorts are the last remaining holdouts in the battle against snowboarding, as they refuse to allow anyone but skiers to ride their lifts.

What’s a boarder to do?

Poach.

Burton is sponsoring a contest called Poach For Freedom (or Sabotage Stupidity, since I like both) in which they will pay a $5,000 bounty to the person or crew that can capture the best video of their poach experience at each of these four locations.

I love when a large company does or encourages something that they’re not supposed to, as it gives them a bit of personality that’s often lost in this overly corporate world (and I’m a snowboarder), so I hope that they get some great footage of teams tearing up these territorial terrains.

Board on.
