2011 Burton US Open Slopestyle Semi-Finals Results

Temperatures dipped to a frigid low today at Stratton Mountain, but that didn’t keep the competition from heating up in the men’s and women’s slopestyle semi-finals at the 29th annual Burton US Open Snowboarding Championships presented by MINI. Ten men and six women advanced to the US Open slopestyle finals, which take place this Friday, March 11th.

The big news from today’s competition is that Jamie Anderson qualified in first place, so she has officially secured the women’s TTR World Tour Championship title by amassing the most TTR points for the season. Spencer O’Brien, Silje Norendal, Enni Rukajarvi, Jordie Karlinski and Kjersti Buaas also earned a spot in the women’s slopestyle finals.
