Of course, not every athlete makes it to the Burton U.S. Open Snowboarding Championships. To get there, they must survive the grueling qualifiers that take place from January 31, 2014 to February 2, 2014 at Seven Springs Mountain Resort in Seven Springs, Pennsylvania. To get an invitation to compete in Vail in March, you have to be among the top six men and three women in both half-pipe and slope-style. A Junior Category has been added this year for a limited number of snowboarders who are aged 13 and under. Spectators not able to make it to the Burton U.S. Open Snowboarding Championships in person will be able to watch the live webcast beginning March 5.
