With the athletes getting underway with practice today for the 2018 Burton U.S. Open, live leaks of the park have been going up on Instagram for the world to see. Luckily, Burton provided us with a detailed digital overlook of all the slope features so we don’t have to guess. Officially kicking off in Vail, CO tomorrow with the Halfpipe Junior Jam, slope will get underway with qualifiers/semi-finals on Wednesday, March 7, and medals will be announced after finals on Friday, March 9. Look for Mark McMorris, Anna Gasser, Red Gerard, Jamie Anderson, and the rest of the field to make their mark this weekend.
On the pipe side, Shaun White and Chloe Kim will look to defend their titles, while Ben Ferguson, Scotty James, Kelly Clark, Maddie Mastro and the rest of the invited list will take to the 600′ long pipe for a chance to unseat the reigning champs.
