2010 Burton U.S. Open

After 28 years, the Burton U.S. Open of Snowboarding is still going strong. And why wouldn't it be? Vermont is steeped in snowboarding culture, and competing here (or just being on hand to watch the contest) is a veritable rite of passage in the sport. Shaun White didn't quite make it this year, citing exhaustion as his reason, but the legions of talented riders more than made up for the lack of crimson locks. Take a look at how things went down at Stratton Mountain, home to the event. (Mark Kohlman)
