BURTON RAIL DAYS presented by MINI is one of largest street snowboard contests in the world. The best rail riders from across the world will converge in the heart of Tokyo, Japan at Roppongi Hills Arena with the chance to walk away with a $27,000.00 cash purse. The 5th annual event promises to culminate with a mixture of music, interactive experiences, and world class snowboarding.
The field of riders for Burton Rail Days isn’t your typical line up of competitors. These guys won’t be found showcasing their talents in the Olympics, rather spending countless nights stacking video clips in the streets. These urban assailants make street snowboarding look effortless. They are truly masters of a unique craft.
New to the event this year will be the addition of two riders who earned their spot by winning the Burton Qualifiers at Seven Springs, PA and Brighton, UT last winter. Look out for them as they try to make their mark and earn their place amongst snowboarding’s elite.
So mark your calendars for November 14, 2015, 5:00pm (JST). This is going to be an event that you won’t want to miss.
