Think Stratton Mountain would be left lonely and pouty by the Burton US Open of Snowboarding moving west to Vail after all those years? Nope. They’re keeping the open scene rolling with the Vermont Open March 15-17, 2013.
The VTO will be a 3 day event with a festival atmosphere and a tribute to the pioneer days & spirit of snowboarding and the epic events that shaped an industry. This is a chance to actually ride and compete in retro style venues and events against Legends like Ross Powers and many more! Come for the weekend and ride with Legends, Pros, Amateurs, Washed Up Pros and long lost friends, hear some great music, go to some great parties, even try some old school equipment. Keep the spirit alive!!
A weekend entry costs $135 and includes three days of lift tickets, entry to all the venues, contests (rail jam, Halfpipe), and official parties.
