The 31st annual Burton US Open will take place February 25-March 2, 2013 at Vail Mountain Resort in Colorado.
After over two decades of being held at its home mountain of Stratton in Vermont, Burton officially announced news of the move to Vail on Monday, July 30th.
Upon announcing the news Jake Burton expressed his gratitude and appreciation towards Stratton while remaining optimistic about the US Open’s move to out west: “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.”
