A Commitment to Breaking Down Barriers
Burton recently honored the American Association of Snowboard Instructors with the brand’s first ever Breaking Down Barriers Award during the NSAA Winter Conference and Tradeshow.
Jeff Boliba, Vice President of Sport & Participation at Burton Global presented the award noting that for over the last 20 years, Burton and AASI have worked together to break down barriers to snowboarding.
“We worked together to break down the myth that kids couldn’t snowboard, and created a series of myth-busting videos,” said Jeff. “Our newest venture will focus on adaptive snowboarding in a partnership with AASI to create an adaptive snowboard manual, e-learning course, and training so that anyone has the opportunity to snowboard.”
