Burton US Open 2017

For snowboarders, the Burton US Open is the contest that really matters. Now in its 35th year, it's the daddy of them all and the true test of a rider's mental and physical strength. Having moved from Vermont to Colorado, the comp has attracted bigger crowds and even bigger accolades for the winners. Confirmed riders from around the world include two-time Olympic gold medalist Shaun White (USA) competing in both halfpipe and slopestyle, 2016 X Games gold medalists Chloe Kim (USA), Spencer O’Brien (CAN) and Matt Ladley (USA). Eight-time US Open winner Kelly Clark (USA) and Taku Hiraoka (JPN) will be returning to defend their 2015 US Open halfpipe titles, along with Jamie Anderson (USA) and Yuki Kadono (JPN), both defending their 2015 Burton US Open slopestyle titles. Expect fireworks from Seb Toots, Ben Ferguson, Roope Tonteri, Seppe Smits, David Habluetzel, Tim-Kevin Ravnjak, Miyabi Onitsuka, Greg Bretz, Ayumu Hirano, Scotty James, Redmond Gerard, Queralt Castellet and Aimee Fuller in this epic end-of-season event.
