It wouldn't be the Burton U·S·Open without another epic installment of the legendary Junior Jam Halfpipe presented by Clif Bar. With a spot alongside the professionals in the Burton U·S·Open Halfpipe Semi-Finals up for grabs, there's no better place to see the next generation of snowboarding going head to head in the Golden Peak Halfpipe.

Some of the best riders in the world got their start at past Burton U·S·Open Junior Jams, so who knows which up-and-comers will write their name in the history books for 2020. 2019 saw the bar raised yet again with Brooke D’Hondt (CAN) and Valentino Guseli (AUS) dominating the ever-growing international field. With $2,000 worth of prizes and a ticket to the big leagues up for grabs, make sure you don’t miss these prodigies giving it their all. Check it out in person at Vail’s Golden Peak.


The Junior Jam is a halfpipe, invitation-only competition, with 16 boys and 8 girls aged 14 and under. Given the small field and the number of up and coming riders worldwide, the team at Burton can't invite every kid in the world. We work off regional results, current form, and recommendations from a select team of international coaches, team managers, and industry professionals to create the invite list.
