Need For Speed! Burton Takes Adaptive Snowboarding To The Next Level With Holly Palmer

Posted on 5 Aug, 2022

Introducing adaptive snowboarder Holly Palmer…

Holly faced many challenges while snowboarding as she continued to be limited by the products she was riding. Enter, Burton!

This winter, Burton, Thredbo and Disabled Winter Sports Australia teamed up to bring Holly to Thredbo for the first time, with the goal to make her snowboarding experience more accessible.

Burton created custom snowboarding gear for Holly and with the help of Thredbo’s talented instructors, she made some serious progress during her time here!

And if you want to see more about how Burton created the custom gear, you can follow along the journey below…

 The biggest thing is: if you really want to do something, you can. Nothing’s stopping you. It may take years, but if you really want to do it you can, and you will.

– Holly Palmer

Thredbo sits on the traditional land of the Monero – Ngarigo people who have looked after this land, water and community for over 70,000 years. We thank them for all they have done and continue to do to look after their country, a special place which we all love and respect.
