Would you be surprised if we were to tell you that Sebatien Toutant and Jamie Anderson were the top slope style qualifiers in the 2012 Burton US Open of Snowboarding? No? Well don’t be because Seb busted out a Cab hard way 270, Cab double under flip mute grab, backside double cork 1080 mute grab, frontside on to wall ride 360 out, 50-50 to backside rodeo melon grab out on his first run and no one even came close even though they had two more tries. Maxence Parrot and Janne Korpi qualified in second and third.

For the women Jamie Anderson locked down a second run that included a board slide 270 out, backside 540 mute grab, switch backside 540 mute grab, backside tail slide and 50-50 to tail grab. Kjersti Østgaard Buaas qualified in second and Spencer O’Brien nabbed the third spot.
