Book that ticket for Colorado: The Burton US Open Snowboarding Championships will move from Vermont to Vail beginning in 2013.

The event, now 30 years old, will be held Feb. 25-March 2 on Vail’s Golden Peak, where a special half-pipe will be built for the competition. In recent years the event has been held at Stratton Mountain in Vermont.

Check out what Burton founder Jake Burton had to say about the move in the Denver Business Journal.

Kelly Clark, an East Coast native and a long-time competitor in the event at Stratton Mountain, talks about why the move will be a boon to the championships with RealVail.com.
