The first day of competition at the 23rd annual USASA Championships saw sunny skies and insane competition throughout each venue. Despite unseasonable temperatures, rising to the low 60’s, the alpine courses and pipe, as it is being cut every night, held up nicely all morning. Coaches, competitors, and parents commented on the quality of the special course builds. Coach Travis Mclain from Aspen commented “I am impressed with how well all the venues are riding. Its cool that USASA builds custom courses especially for this event.”
Highlights from today included the first elimination finals in Slalom Youth and Junior Men’s Classes. Men’s and Ladies’ Open BoarderCross finished early on the first day, and included some great racing. Check out the full results for the day here.
Tomorrow temperatures are supposed to drop and competition will continue with a 70% chance of snow.
