Snowboarding:  payday at the season's finals

27th US Open 2009

March 16th - 22nd 2009, Stratton Mountain/Vermont (USA)

The history of this event goes back to the pioneering days of snowboarding: 27 years after its premiere event, the US Open is still the absolute highlight of the snowboard winter - the big finals that may decide over the success or failure of an entire season. From March 16th to 22nd 2009, 40,000 spectators will again flock to Stratton Mountain, Vermont, to cheer for the world's best snowboarders fighting for the US Open trophies at the slopestyle, super-pipe and quarter-pipe contests. Even more, the cups of the Ticket To Ride World Snowboard Tour (TTR) and the Burton Global Open Series will be awarded in Stratton.
