Behind the Burton US Open

It isn't often that people see / know what goes on in preparation for the World's Greatest Snowboard Event. The Burton US Open has been going on for 35 years now and this year I was lucky enough to get thrown in the mix a few days prior to the first official event. Here is a collection of photos including the people and machines that make the Burton US Open the World's Greatest Snowboard Event. Enjoy!
