"We stand sideways. We sleep on floors in cramped resort hotel rooms. We get up early and go to sleep late. We've been mocked. We are relentless. We dream it, we make it, we break it, we fix it. We create. We destroy. We wreck ourselves day in and day out and yet we stomp that one trick or find that one line that keeps us coming back. We progress. We Snowboard." Burton
At Nokia we believe that everyone has the right to a richer, fuller life. That’s why we make devices and experiences that empower people to look at the world with new eyes. To reach out and take risks, to push themselves, express themselves, share more and grow. Live adventure everywhere!
2013 marks the 31st anniversary of The World's Greatest Snowboard Event and a new chapter in US Open history. Over 100 of the world's best riders will make their way to Vail, Colorado, the new home of the US Open for intense competition and progressive riding on February 25th - March 2nd, 2013.
