Today marked the first day for the 2011 USASA Ski Nationals. This is also the very first year that Ski Nationals is an exclusive event; in the past, Ski Nationals has always been integrated with USASA’s snowboard event. Thus, skiers of all ages practiced in halfpipe, slopestyle, and skiercross throughout the day, while taking some time off tonight for opening ceremonies.
(South Lake Tahoe, CA – April 7th, 2011) USASA is proud to announce that the Open Class ski competition at the 2011 Nationals has been designated as a silver-level event by the Association of Freeskiing Professionals (AFP). This is very exciting news for both USASA and AFP, as our halfpipe and slopestyle ski athletes will be able to join the world rankings that AFP is so well known for.
Meet Your TS
You train hard all season and make it to Nationals. You pack it up and trek to Copper Mountian. You are focused. You know your start time, you get your practice runs and in a flash 2011 Nationals has flown by. Have you ever stopped and wondered how this all happens? Wondered who it is that gets the courses in pristine shape and is always there before you?
Well meet your TS for Halfpipe, Greg Flowers
