"Progression" is what makes Burton rental equipment superior to other rental boards first-timers might have tried. It is also a philosophy shared by the folks at Burton and the technicians at Liberty - we strongly believe that a smooth start and easy path for progress is the best way to develop a first timer into a true snowboarder. We are excited to prove it to you!

Liberty Mountain has officially joined the ranks of resorts like Whistler-Blackcomb, Heavenly, and Vail in becoming a Burton Learn to Ride, Kid’s Learn to Ride and Women’s Learn to Ride Center. We've always believed in the best instruction for first-time riders, and in the importance of being on the best equipment too! Liberty’s snowboard rental shop rents only Burton LTR gear — the most innovative snowboard rental equipment on the market!

Read our First Timer's Guide for tips on what to expect when you arrive at the resort, and how to dress for a great day on the snow.

Women rejoice! Liberty has earned the distinction of becoming a Burton Women Learn to Ride Center — what does that mean? It means that Liberty has demonstrated a strong dedication to women-specific teaching and learning. This ensures women's snowboarding boots, bindings and boards, and instruction geared especially towards women.
