Ski-Doo be­comes the of­fi­cial snow­mo­bile for Bur­ton’s Team of Pro Snow­board­ers

Ski-Doo and Bur­ton to co-de­velop prod­ucts Ski-Doo spon­sors the Bur­ton Moun­tain Fes­ti­val

Val­court, Québec, Septem­ber 25, 2014 - BRP’s Ski-Doo brand is part­ner­ing with Bur­ton Snow­boards, the world’s lead­ing snow­board­ing com­pany, with Ski-Doo be­com­ing the of­fi­cial snow­mo­bile for Bur­ton Snow­boards’ team of pro rid­ers. The two com­pa­nies also agreed to code­velop prod­ucts to suit the needs of snow­board­ers and snow­mo­bil­ers and Ski-Doo be­comes spon­sor of the Bur­ton Moun­tain Fes­ti­val.

The emerg­ing trend of rid­ers us­ing snow­mo­biles to ac­cess the back­coun­try is on the rise, as peo­ple find it a more eco­nom­i­cal way to en­joy their sport. Feed­back from Bur­ton and Ski-Doo pro rid­ers will be used to de­velop prod­ucts and ac­tiv­i­ties that are ex­cit­ing and rel­e­vant for snow­board­ers and snow­mo­bil­ers.

“Part­ner­ing with BRP and Ski-Doo is a nat­u­ral ex­ten­sion for Bur­ton and our team of pro snow­board­ers,” said Ni­cholas Sar­gent, Vice Pres­i­dent of Global Busi­ness Al­liances for Bur­ton. “Our rid­ers use sleds to ac­cess fresh pow­der and new ter­rain all sea­son long, so they’re re­ally ex­cited to have an of­fi­cial part­ner­ship with the Ski-Doo brand. We also look for­ward to in­te­grat­ing Ski-Doo into the Bur­ton Moun­tain Fes­ti­val, which will give them a strong brand pres­ence at the lead­ing snow­board demo ex­pe­ri­ence in North Amer­ica.” The Bur­ton Moun­tain Fes­ti­val, the most ex­ten­sive, in­ter­ac­tive snow­board demo ex­pe­ri­ence takes place in eight sites through­out North Amer­ica.

“BRP is proud to de­velop a part­ner­ship with an­other in­no­va­tive com­pany like Bur­ton Snow­boards, the most renowned name in snow­board­ing,” stated Louis Lévesque, vice-pres­i­dent, Global Mar­ket­ing and Con­sumer Ex­pe­ri­ence. “We share a sim­i­lar pas­sion for the ul­ti­mate ex­pe­ri­ence and a cul­ture of con­stant in­no­va­tion where we lead by push­ing bound­aries in our re­spec­tive fields.”
