General Event Info
 Welcome to the 29th annual US Open Snowboarding Championships website. Be sure to check the schedule and formats as we have made a few changes. Also, the Mammoth Grand Prix has changed their schedule and Sunday is now their weather day. Remember, HELMETS ARE MANDATORY.

The 29th annual US Open Snowboarding Championships is the event of the season and one that you don’t want to miss!

Whether you are a competitor or a spectator, come take part in the longstanding US Open tradition at Stratton Mountain, Vermont.

But, be sure to keep reading as there are some cool new things going on this year that you won’t want to miss.

*First, be sure to mark your calendar because the USO is a WEEK EARLIER THIS YEAR!! The USO will take place on March 7-13, 2011.

*There is a whole new schedule, with the event kicking off with competition starting on MONDAY and the semi finals and finals for both halfpipe and slopestyle will be on DIFFERENT DAYS!


*Judges will be using the new Snowboard Live Scoring System (“SLS”) for the halfpipe and slopestyle semifinals and finals. Spectators on site will be able to see the SLS system first hand on the big screen, while viewers at home will be able to see SLS on the webcast. For more info on SLS, check the SLS overview in the “Info” section.

*New Formats! All of the BGOS events are using new formats for the finals. Now, finals for both slopestyle and halfpipe will consist of 10 men and 6 women, where the best of three runs wins.  Men's Qualifiers for both HP and SS now consists of 30 riders.

*The Halfpipe and Slopestyle courses are MOVING! Both venues will be moving down the hill towards the sponsor village for better spectator viewing!

*Mini is the new presenting sponsor of the USO. They will be onsite with cool cars to check out and will be providing some great awards to the riders.

*The sponsor village will have a whole new look and feel. Food vendors, bigger sponsor set ups….all creating a more festival-like vibe.

As in year’s past, the USO is not only the final stop of the Burton Global Open Series, where the top 3 male and top 3 female riders in the series will split the $200,000 BGOS cash purse, but the USO is also the culminating stop on the men’s and women’s TTR World Snowboard Tour titles.

The USO is an “open” event, which means anyone can enter! Preference is given to the top 250 riders on the TTR ranking list. So if you have not taken part in a TTR event, be sure to check one out! Registration runs from December 7, 2010 to February 1, 2011. Click here for more details!

Schedules, formats, prize breakdown, venue info can all be found within this site. And be sure to check back for updates as they are posted.

See you at Stratton for the 2011 US Open Snowboarding Championships!
