If you snowboard like my family, you probably know that the Jake Burton Carpenter, the father of snowboarding passed away last year due to complications of cancer.  Burton not only started the world’s largest snowboarding company out of his shop in southern Vermont, he almost single-handedly got the resorts to let snowboarders on the mountain (starting with Stratton, VT).

To celebrate his life, 13 top resorts on three continents are offering free lift tickets to snowboarders.  To see the 13 participating mountains, click here or head below. REGISTER HERE.

If you aren’t close to a participating mountain, DIY an armband. Put your savings toward a donation to Chill. #RideOnJake
