Jamie Anderson wins Burton U.S. Open in Vermont

STRATTON, Vt. - South Lake Tahoe's own Jamie Anderson won the Burton U.S. Open slopestyle, placing her at the top of the Ticket To Ride (TTR) and Burton Global Open Series standings.

"I can't believe I'm walking off the podium with three trophies," said Jamie Anderson. "It's enough to just win the US Open slopestyle title, which I haven't won since 2007. But to also go home with the BGOS and TTR Championship titles is a huge honor."

Anderson tore through the competition, topping Norway's Kjersti Ostgaard Buass and Finland's Enni Rukajarvi. Another South Lake Tahoe star, Joanna Dzierzawski, finished sixth.

No one could catch Jamie Anderson, who put together a super smooth second run that was packed with her signature, unbeatable style. Jamie's winning run included a frontside boardslide to fakie, Cab 720 nose grab, switch backside 540 mute grab, tailslide 270 out and ending things with a 50-50 backside 180 out.

Anderson will pocket $50,000 in the win.
