Shaun White sends it to 6th Burton U·S·Open Title
With the sun shining and the 2016 Burton US Open Snowboarding Championship Halfpipe is incredible shape, the stage was certainly set for near insanity in the pipe – and that’s what the fans got. Shaun White (95.62) delivered massive airs, Ben Ferguson (88.62) and Taku Hiraoka (88.25) brought a combination of impressive style and technical tricks, and the rest of the field kept the scene lit.
Chloe Kim (89.37) was the favorite coming into the 2016 Burton US Open Women's Halfpipe Finals and got right to work grabbing the top position with her first run. Kelly Clark (79.00) managed to fight through injury for a podium position, but it was Xuetong Cai (82.99) grabbing second.
