Vans Girls at the 2014 Burton US Open
The Burton US Open is the longest running major snowboard event in the world and draws hundreds of competitors from around the globe each year. After taking place in Vermont for decades, the event moved to Vail, Colorado in 2013 to go bigger and better than ever before. Fresh off their trip to Sochi, Cheryl Maas and Vans UK’s Aimee Fuller were ready for one more contest to wrap up the season before heading into the backcountry to start filming. Cheryl Switch Back Fived her way into the finals, while Aimee joined a crew of Chanelle Sladics, Kevin Pierce, Danny Davis, Henry Jackson and Jack Mitrani in the live webcast booth to cheer her on. Despite the brutal snowstorm, Cheryl charged her way down the course but missed the podium this time. The US Open is a great event for snowboarding and everyone had a blast.
