We're back from the US Open Snowboarding Championships this weekend, and we've posted EIGHT videos of our adventures there.
You can see them on www.SnowboardSecrets.TV and it would be great if you can check out one or more. Our videos are currently among the highest ranking ones for the Open this year (and last) and we're trying to stay up their in the rankings by having lots of happy viewers like you! And if you like them, please spread the word! THANKS! Lauren
Our favorite of the videos is the absurd sounding "Excuse me, R U Danny Davis?? @ US Open Snowboard 2011 It's just 28 seconds, but Danny's kind friendly smile just caught me off guard and I couldn't think of anything else to say!
This video "pre-cap" takes us through Friday at the Burton US Open Snowboarding Championship 2011 at Stratton Mountain, VT. We meet Slopestyle Winners Eric Willet and Jamie Anderson for a chat before their contests. Luke Haddock, Ulrik Badertscher, Yale Cousino, and Sondre Tiller say a few words. We have a word with Slopestyle men's winners Mark McMorris, Chas Guldemond and near winner Jason Dubois as well as ladies winners Enni Rukajarvi and Silje Norendal. New " voice of the US Open" John Weaver tells us how he got his gig in the longer interview version. Lauren asks the mustachioed man the absurd question of the day "Are you Danny Davis?" and ... he is! We check out the rail jam set-up by daylight and "The Jam" action outdoors and in after dark. Then it's blacklight and dancing at the Burton Rider's Party. Video by Lauren Traub Teton exclusive for SnowboardSecrets.TV.
