Burton snowboards and skis from 11 manufacturers will be available for testing March 16 when the Snowbasin Adaptive Sports Education Foundation holds its On-Snow Demo Day & Charity Raffle at Snow­basin Resort near Ogden.

Skis and snowboards may be rented from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. for a $20 donation to the foundation, said resort spokesman Jason Dyer.

Manufacturers will have tents adjacent to the base-level Earl's Lodge patio. To encourage more participation, Dyer said Snowbasin will honor weekday-only passes on that Saturday. Proceeds will help the foundation buy specialized training equipment and provide scholarships for needy disabled athletes in northern Utah.
