In 1982 a small group of snurfers and snowboarders held the first National Snowboard Championships at a mountain called Suicide Six in Vermont. Jake Burton was at the first event and now he brings the US Open to Stratton Mountain in Vermont on March 16 to 22 for its 27th year of competition and celebration.
The US Open is the final stop on the Burton Open Global Series and the final stop on the TTR World Snowboard Tour so all the best snowboarders in the world will be there.
All events are free to the public but after watching the tricks that the world's top riders pull off, you're gonna want to buy a lift ticket and hit the slopes yourself.
