Kids Don’t Have to Learn to Ski First

One of the awesome things about being on the AASI National Team is the projects we get to work on that impact the whole industry.

Earlier this spring, teammate Amy Gan and I met up with Burton’s Global Experience Manager Shaun Cattanach at Eldora Mountain Resort for one of those projects, a video to promote learn to snowboard programs for young kids to show at the National Ski Areas Association’s National Convention.

Not only was it a fun project to create and film, it carried an important message to ski area managers from across the country. I’m really happy with how the┬ávideo turned out and love its message about improvements to children’s snowboard education through advancements in equipment, terrain, and teaching.
