wswpod1BURTON WINTER STORM WARNING ALERT:

Tune in to LIVE Facebook Webcast on 8/12 & Drop in to Snowboard Shops on 8/13

BURLINGTON, VT (August 11, 2011) Sources confirm that the winter ‘storm’ that Burton has been tracking for 10 days will definitely hit authorized dealers this coming weekend.

Tomorrow night the storm moves into range, as Burton opens its global headquarters for a company launch countdown to 8/13 when winter 2012 officially arrives in stores. All of the action will be broadcasted live via Burton’s Winter Storm Warning webcast hosted on Facebook at www.facebook.com/burtonsnowboards on Friday, August 12 from 10:00pm – 12:00am EST. Riders will definitely want to tune in to see everything from sneak peeks of the new 2012 gear, live event updates and antics by Burton’s own ‘anchormen’ Jack Mitrani, Kevin Pearce and Mikey Rencz, and live chat with team and Jake Burton.

The storm will then arrive full force on Saturday, August 13, bringing Burton’s 2012 gear and consumer catalog into shops for the first time. To weather this storm, snowboarders are encouraged to head to ‘Party Bunkers’ on 8/13 where they will find 2012 gear, catalogs, food, drinks, prizes and the chance to win $1000 worth of Burton product at each location. For other refuge, riders can also head to ‘Safe Shelters’ where 2012 gear, and catalogs will be waiting. At all Party Bunker and Safe Shelter locations riders can also enter to win Burton’s ‘Big Dump Sweepstakes’ kicking off 8/13. Party Bunker and Safe Shelter locations can be found at www.burton.com

Although records indicate that winter has been an annual event for some time, this winter storm appears especially huge. To follow all the exciting action, tune in to Burton’s live webcast at www.facebook.com/burtonsnowboards Friday, August 12th at 10:00 pm EST, and head into your local authorized Burton dealer on Saturday, August 13th.
