Give yourself a shortcut on the learning curve with the Burton Instigator Wide Snowboard. Catch-free and easygoing, the Instigator actually makes less trouble for you when it comes to progression thanks to its soft-flexing, playful feel and friendly Flat Top profile underfoot. The flat profile between the feet means stability, better balance, and continuous edge control, while the tip and tail kick up with an early rise outside the feet for the catch-free, loose feeling that's both forgiving and conducive to easy turn initiation. Pairing with the Flat Top Profile, a Cruise Control Tune rounds out the edges where you need it for a catch-free feel that boosts overall confidence when learning to link turns and helping you avoid the dreaded scorpion. Then, the directional shape helps concentrate pop in the tail while still providing plenty of float, flow, and control to handle most terrain you encounter. This directional shape also boasts a 5mm taper to promote smooth turn entry and exit, stability at speed, and easy surfing over deep snow. Under the hood of this progression-oriented shred stick, the dual-species FSC certified Super Fly 800g wood core uses dual-density vertical laminations of alternating softwood and hardwood to shave overall weight without compromising strength or performance. Squeezebox Low profiling has stiffer zones just outside your feet to create a more direct energy transfer to the tip and tail, while allowing a softer, smoother flex between the bindings to give you more control with less effort. Biax glass promotes jib-friendly torsional flex for a forgiving, playful feel, while the extruded base delivers speed and strength with little maintenance.

The North Cascades have long been known as the North American Alps. Characterized by rugged beauty, this steep mountain range is filled with jagged peaks, deep valleys, cascading waterfalls and glaciers. North Cascades National Park Service Complex contains the heart of this mountainous region in three park units which are all managed as one and include North Cascades National Park, Ross Lake and Lake Chelan National Recreation Areas.
Badgers are animals of open country. Their oval burrows (ten inches across and four to six inches high) are familiar features of grasslands on sandy or loamy soils of the eastern plains or shrub country in mountain parks or western valleys.
