The Burton Star Wars Experience Opens at Lake Tahoe

Snow has finally fallen on the Sierras in recent weeks, meaning the Burton Star Wars Experience at Lake Tahoe, California is now open!

Families, friends, fans and snowboarders of all ages gathered at Sierra-at-Tahoe Resort last month to celebrate the grand opening of the first and only Burton Star Wars Experience, which uses iconic Star Wars themes and characters to introduce children ages 3-6 to the sport of snowboarding. Kids of all ages enjoyed the Star Wars-themed celebration, which included crafts, games, and photos with Stormtroopers, Yoda, and R2-D2.

Tahoe still has plenty of snow at press time, so there's still a chance to enjoy the all-new Burton Star Wars Experience this season! Check out the slideshow at right for a glimpse of the activities and fantastic setting the Sierras provide young Star Wars snowboarding fans, and be sure to visit the official Burton Star Wars Experience site and our original announcement for more information!
