BURTON U·S·OPEN DAILY ROUND-UP: MONDAY MARCH 5
It’s on! Time to kick off a week of action and entertainment at the world’s greatest snowboard event, the 36th annual Burton U·S·Open. The best riders are here and each day is jam packed with competition, activities, and a full line-up as part of the Burton Concert Series. Read on for a taste of what’s going down all day and night now through Saturday at Vail, Colorado.
Competition kicks off tomorrow with the legendary Junior Jam presented by Clif Bar. This halfpipe event shines the spotlight on amateur riders ages 14 & under from around the world looking to climb the ranks and compete alongside the pros in Thursday’s halfpipe semi-finals. It’s an event like no other and a great place to see the future of competitive snowboarding.
After the Junior Jam, the competition schedule marches on with women’s and men’s slopestyle semi-finals kicking off on Wednesday, followed by the women’s and men’s halfpipe semi-finals on Thursday. Friday and Saturday the competition shifts into high gear with the main events: slopestyle and halfpipe finals for both women and men. Who will take the coveted titles and mark the next chapter in Burton U·S·Open history? You’ll just have to watch in person or tune in to the live broadcasts to see. As the final elite event of the most competitive and progressive season to date, it’s sure to be a show.
World-class competition is only the beginning. The days and nights are loaded with activities, including good times at Après All Day locations throughout the village. There are also chances to meet, and even ride, with the athletes, the Burton Girls Ride Day & Après, nightly parties including our favorite—the Chill Foundation Fundraiser—and so much more.
So keep an eye on the schedule and be sure to download the official Burton U·S·Open app on the App Store and Google Play for up to the minute notifications, live broadcasts, concert details, and more. It’s all going down starting now this week in Vail, Colorado. See you out there!
