Snowboard season may be tough to imagine with summer’s smoldering heat, but there is big news on the horizon for the US Open Championships. It’s official: Burton Snowboards and Vail Mountain announced today that the Burton US Open Snowboarding Championships is moving to Vail, Colorado, starting in 2013.
Burton pro riders Kelly Clark and Mark McMorris were among the group in Vail, and had this to say:
“The US Open is one of my favorite events by far, and I couldn’t be more excited about its next evolution,” stated five-time US Open halfpipe champ and three-time Olympian Kelly Clark of West Dover, Vermont. “Burton has always been about progressing the sport and doing what’s best for snowboarders, and I truly believe that this move to Vail will make the Open even better for the riders and the thousands of fans who come out to watch.”
“I also couldn’t be more stoked on this,” added two-time X-Games Gold Medalist Mark McMorris of Regina, Canada. “Ever since I started snowboarding, the US Open was always the main show, and knowing what Burton and Vail have in store to take this contest to the next level makes me so excited to compete there this winter.”
The Burton US Open is the longest-running snowboarding competition in the world with the first contest taking place in 1982. Burton Founder & CEO Jake Burton has played a vital role at every step of the US Open’s history and had this to say:
“First off, I just want to thank Stratton Mountain in Vermont where the US Open took place for so long,” said Jake. “Stratton not only hosted the Open for 27 years, but also played a pivotal role in making resort riding a reality. And as we look to the future progression of the US Open, I feel that Vail offers us the ideal venue to host the event. Vail is an incredible mountain and has been my snowboarding home-away-from-home for over 20 years. I have no doubt that the US Open at Vail will only grow in its legacy as the premier rider-driven event in the world.”
Burton and Vail have already began the planning process for the 2013 US Open. First on the list is to secure final U.S. Forest Service approvals to relocate Vail’s halfpipe to a more favorable position on Golden Peak. Along with a festival-like village being built at the base of Golden Peak that will host exciting activities and experiences, including free, live music concerts for all riders and spectators.
“When Burton decided to move the US Open out west after 30 successful years back east, we were delighted that they chose Vail for such an important event. We look forward to hosting the world’s best snowboarders at Vail. We believe it’s a perfect marriage of two great brands in the winter sports industry and we’ll do our utmost to make this a tremendously successful endeavor,” said Blaise Carrig, president of Vail Resorts mountain division.
Mark your calendars from February 25-March 2, 2013, for the US Open Championships in Vail.

With not much going on in the Northwest the RWU crew jumped in the car and drove East to Cook City, MT to meet up with Todd Kirby and friends. Soon upon arrival in “kook city” came large volumes of snow! After about 5 hours there were already 7-8 inches on the ground, so we headed up the hill and built 2 jumps to have them ready when the weather cleared. Once the jumps where built we just explored the area and kept going back to the jumps to make sure no one high marked the landing. Well luckily enough at the same exact time that the sun came out, 2 snowboarders and a sledneck put tracks in both of the jump landings, subsequently ending the trip… When we got home we decided it would be best just to board in our backyard, “Ski Acres”.

Matt Belzile – “On December 8th we went on an overnight excursion to Cerise Creek by Pemberton, BC. We had roughly 5 km of skinning to our camp site. The snow was decent but we were able to find really good pockets on north and east facing slopes. The panoramic was great. I was really impressed at how well it rode, it did not feel like a split board even on firm snow it felt solid.”
