Powder & Rails: US Open part 3

Watch as US Open competitors relive their glory days by getting boozy and trying to survive an icy slalom run.

The Burton US Open’s 30th birthday party kicks off with the Washed Up Cup, where past US Open competitors relive their glory days by getting boozy and trying to survive an icy slalom run. After sobering up, some of the Washed Up riders discuss the evolution of the halfpipe and how and when it became known as the “Superpipe.” Then we hear an early 90s party story about how one night Shaun Palmer and Noah Salasnek were wasted and rolled their van off a Vermont back road. We circle back to why the Burton US Open is so important to the history of snowboarding and cap off the episode with the highlights from the 2012 pipe finals.
