I know nothing about snowboarding except what I have learned from my son. He attended a snowboarding camp on Mount Hood one Christmas and has snowboarded a few times since then. He is talking of perhaps going snowboarding during the Christmas holiday, so this website, BuySnow.com, caught my eye.
Then the Burton snowboards caught my interest. They are offering a free ski lift ticket and a free learn how to ride lesson with the purchase of a 2009 Burton Snowboard under $359.95. Usually, you have to buy the more expensive items to get the bonuses, but not here. While looking at the Burton snowboards, I noticed that quite a few were in the right price range to get the bonuses. I also noticed they have free shipping over $99!
Burton offers 209 snowboards, as well as jackets, boots, outerwear, hoodies, hats, backpacks and stomp pads. Stomp pad was a new term for me. Evidently, a stomp pad keeps your rear foot from slipping off the snowboard. However, from the looks of some of the stomp pads, they are another form of board bling.
If you are looking for a Christmas gift for a hard to please teen, you may want to visit BuySnow.com and take a look at the Burton section. If you cannot find something to please your teen, buy yourself something.
