We recently gathered at Northstar California Resort for Burton Girls Ride Day, our favorite part of the Burton Mountain Festival. As a group of women who ride and care about their gear, we were curious to see what some of the ladies were riding. Kimmy Fasani and Burton Ambassadors Meg Kee and Kristen Fejtek talked us through their setups from head to toe. Hear it from them, in their own words.
“My snowboarding goals are nothing huge, just to enjoy my season and get as many laps in as possible!”
“This season I am filming for Absinthe Films again and I am hoping to continue to progress my riding in big mountains. I will spend my season in California, Japan, British Columbia, and Alaska.”
“My snowboarding goals for the season are to continue to advance my skills and have as much fun as possible. As a snowboard instructor, a goal of mine is to never lose my passion for the sport or see it as just work. I want to keep spreading the love!”
There you have it: Three different styles, three ways to gear up. Maybe this will inspire you to look at your own gear and reevaluate what’s working and what isn’t. Staying warm, dry, and comfortable is key for anyone who wants to snowboard all season long, no matter what the sky is doing. Share your setup with the hashtag #Burton to show us what you’re rocking. ∆
