Get ready for one of the most fun and exciting events all year in the snowboarding world. Filled with talent, partying, and an all around buzz of energy, the U.S. Open Snowboarding Championships is something you’ll want to be a part of. If you can make it out to Stratton to watch, we highly recommend it. This is the longest standing snowboard event on record, and it draws huge crowds, and hugely popular competitors (Shaun White, Hannah Teter, Scotty Lago).
The Open ends the Burton Global Series, and the top three men and women will get a grand cash prize. The top male of the tour is awarded the 2010 TTR World Snowboard title, so stay tuned to see who’ll take it!
