The Burton US Open is the last major stop of the 2010/11 TTR World Tour season and played host to the official Swatch TTR World Tour awards ceremony at the close of the event.This season, Peetu competed on three different continents and did not discriminate when choosing what types of events to attend. Peetu does it all and does it all well. He began this season in Asia at the 6Star Shaun White Oakley Air & Style in Beijing, China where he placed fifth in the big air competition. From Asia, he moved on to Europe where he took fourth place at the 6Star O'Neill Evolution halfpipe in Davos, Switzerland. Peetu found himself back on the podium when he took down the 6Star Burton European Open halfpipe title and placed second in slopestyle. And, at the 6Star Billabong Air & Style in Innsbruck, Austria, Peetu took another second place. Just one week later, he won the 6Star Nike 6.0 Air & Style in Munich, Germany, which was the result that ended up clinching his TTR World Tour title for the 2010/11 season.Jamie dominated in the 2010/11 season claiming victories on slopestyle courses all over the globe, starting off with the 5Star New Zealand Open and the 6Star O'Neill Evolution slopestyle competitions.

Her second TTR World Tour title was confirmed at the Burton US Open where she took second place in slopestyle.

Episode 3 – From Straight Lines to Triple Corks – History of Competitive Snowboarding

For competitive snowboarding, 2013 has been a year for reminiscing and good times; from legends’ sessions at O’Neill Evolution and the historical 20th Anniversary of Air&Style, to a genuine retro look and feel etched all over the Burton European and US Open.  We also saw legends like Gian Simmen saying goodbye to the competition scene and moving on to new chapters in their lives.   Why have we felt so nostalgic this season? It might have something to do with the insane amount of progression the sport is currently witnessing; but we would like to stop for a minute, catch our breath and take five from concerning ourselves with the future and dive deeper into the marvellous tale of snowboarding. It’s a rich narrative, filled with some illustrious characters, such as Tom Sims and Jake Burton who wrote and starred on the first pages. It moves on, with adventurers and immortal heroes like Craig Kelly, Terje Haakonsen and Shaun White. And the story does not end there…

Swatch TTR World Snowboard Tour: Progression in Snowboarding

"Progression" is the fourth segment from a collection cut out of the 2009/2010 Swatch TTR TV Show series. The 2009/10 season was a year where the game changed on the TTR Tour with riders learning different variations of double corks in both the pipe and on the slopestyle course. Shaun White, Luke Mitrani and Louie Vito all blew the top off the double cork trend in the halfpipe at the 2009 Burton New Zealand Open and set a new standard on the competition circuit. In this video, we hear from Marko Grilc, Mikkel Bang, Iouri Podladtchikov, Christian Haller, Torah Bright, Torstein Horgmo, Travis Rice and US Snowboard Coach, Bud Keene, on what it's like to do a double cork and how this type of trick has pushed the progression of snowboarding. Alongside the interviews is footage of Travis Rice and David Benedek throwing doubles at the 2006 Air & Style Munich and shots of Sebastien Toutant, Shaun White, Marko Grilc, Iouri Podladtchikov and others flaunting their double cork skills.To see this show in its entirety please visit http://www.ttrworldtour.com/multimedia/tv-schedule.html for television airing times in your region.
