Burton U·S·Open Daily Round-Up: Saturday March 4
Get ready to witness history in the making. It’s the final day of competition at the 35th annual Burton USOpen, and we’re about to kick it off with one of snowboarding’s most legendary events: halfpipe finals. Get ready to finish off the week with the crowning of our newest women’s and men’s halfpipe champions, a full lineup of activities, and FREE live music all day and on through the night.
You can expect the riders to be going big today.
It all starts today with the men’s and women’s halfpipe finals. Scotty James and Chloe Kim are looking to carry their success in the semi-finals all the way to the podium, but there are plenty of riders standing in their way. In the end, three men and three women will stand on the podium, and the two on top will accept the title of Burton US Open halfpipe champion. Will 2016 champions Chloe Kim and Shaun White continue their dominance? You’ll have to watch and see.
Tune in for women's finals today.
Following the men’s halfpipe finals, head to the Burton Store at Lionshead for an autograph signing with some of your favorite riders from the Burton Team. Rumor has it that Shaun White and Chloe Kim will be there!
See more of this from Danny Davis in the men's finals today.
The FREE live music kicks off this evening at 6:00pm with Keys N Krates, Scratch Bastid, and Xavier Omär over at the Solaris Concert Stage. But that’s not all! The grand finale for the whole week, the US Open Closing Party, featuring D.R.A.M., Four Color Zack, and Air Credits is going down tonight from 9:30pm to 1:00am at the Dobson Ice Arena. We hope to see you there.
