If you've never been to a resort with a rope tow, there are some things you should know.
And those are:
1. You never have to unstrap.
2. They get you uphill fast.
3. There’s (almost) never a line.
What more could you need?
For the latest Burton Presents we headed to the rope tow mecca that is greater Minneapolis (Minnesota and Wisconsin) with Ethan Deiss and Shane Ruprecht who are – by our account, anyway – some of the most experienced rope-tow’ers in the game. Amongst heavy doses of Wisconsin cheddar and auto-serve yogurt, we hit crowded ropes, empty ropes, a rope that’s open until 3am, and even a long lost abandoned rope. But hey, you’d already know that if you just hit play. Enjoy.
