2013 Burton US Open Snowboard Championships Vail Colorado.
An epic spring-like day at Golden Peak on Vail mountain shooting many of the world’s best men and women halfpipe riders competing for gold in Burton’s US Open Snowboard Championships… time and again, competitors soared effortlessly above the 600′ halfpipe while eliciting the amazement of the onlookers below. After having spent the past 30 years in Vermont and the last 27 at Stratton mountain, Vail’s inaugural hosting of the Open was a good first showing, showing signs of even greater thrills to come. In the halfpipe, both Shaun White and Kelly Clark won their 5th and 6th titles respectively. What more needs to be said, the 2013 Burton US Open Snowboarding Championships in Vail Colorado are already the stuff of legend; these celebrated riders did not disappoint, the day’s spectacle being one for the record-books… truly AWESOME stuff!
