Burton Global Open Series Announces 2009/2010 Competition Dates (19-Apr-09)

Burton, April 19, 2009 - The Burton Global Open Series has announced dates for its 2009/2010 international

The Burton Global Open Series has announced dates for its 2009/2010 international snowboard competition series, which will kick off in New Zealand this summer. Below are dates and locations for all 2009/2010 Burton Global Open Series events.

Instead of having two events down under in 2009, Burton has decided to combine the Australian Open and the New Zealand Open into one premier Southern Hemisphere event taking place in New Zealand. From August 11th – 15th.

“Heading into a busy Olympic year, we’ve decided to reduce the number of events to free up some room in the global events calendar,” said Liam Griffin, Global Events Director for Burton. “We’re totally committed to the riders who support the series, and are trying to make it easier for everybody to hit all the different events they need to this coming season.”

With events scheduled year-round and in five countries on four continents, the Burton Global Open Series boasts the most lucrative cumulative prize purse in snowboarding. All five Burton Global Open Series events offer riders the chance to earn points towards male and female championship titles, which are awarded at the US Open in Stratton, Vermont.

The European Open stage will be held in Laax, Switzerland  from January 9-16, the Canadian Open  at Canada Olympic Park, Calgary, Alberta from February 2-7, the Asian Open at ALTS Bandai, Japan from March 2-7 and concluding with the US Open from March 16-21 at Stratton Mountain Resort.

The Burton Global Open Series is also part of the Swatch Ticket To Ride (TTR) World Snowboard Tour, the largest group of independent freestyle snowboard events in the world. The Swatch TTR World Snowboard Tour Champions are crowned at the end of the season. / /
