A new stash.

ANOTHER STASH--the natural freestyle terrain parks developed by boards giant Burton--will open this season in Flachauwinkl near Salzburg, Austria.

This is the fifth worldwide and the second in Europe after the opening of The Stash in Avoriaz, France last year.

Located on the north-side of the mountain, the kilometre-long Stash run will follow the natural line of the mountain. It will take on an 'Old West' theme and feature more than 4.0 obstacles, including some unique features like a bridge, a saloon-style cabin, hitching posts and banked wall rides.

Also unique to The Stash at Flachauwinkl is Lil' Stash, which will include small features perfect for kids and beginner riders at the top of the Stash run.

The main Stash run is aimed at intermediate and advanced riders.

Burton team riders Stephan Maurer and Christian Hailer helped choose features for the new run designed by Snow Park Technologies, an industry leader in terrain park development.
