Burton US Open Snowboarding Competition Announces Move To Vail

VAIL, Colo. (AP) – Burton Snowboards is moving the premier event in the sport in the United States to Colorado.

A company official says the Burton US Open, which has been the largest snowboarding competition in the world, needs to expand beyond what southern Vermont’s Stratton Mountain’s limited infrastructure can offer.

The event will take up new residence in Vail next winter.

Stratton officials say they’re disappointed but respect Burton’s decision.
