The Burton European Open (BEO) 2015, which took place in Switzerland and ended yesterday, Sunday, February 1, is an international snowboarding competition made up of both men's and women's Superpipe and Slopestyle events.
During the championship weekend, the storm that is punishing a large part of Europe also passed through the Swiss Alps and forced a slight modification of the test program. Despite everything, the test met the expectations of the international snowboarding community and there was a good show in Slopestyle and Superpipe.
