How do I qualify for the Nationals?

In order to qualify and participate in the USASA  National Championships you must be a member of USASA.  Annual membership fee is $85 till October 31, then $100 on November 1st.

  • All Alpine event results are combined time
  • All Freestyle event resuls are best of 2 runs
  • Boardercross results are determined by a process of elemination through head to head competition

An athlete must participate in at least 2 competitions of particular event in order to qualify for Nationals.  This means for example 2 wins in Giant  Slalom would guarantee a place on the Aspen Snowmass Series Team.  LIkewise, 2 wins in Slalom, Boardercross, Halfpipe, Slopestyle, and Rall Jam would qualify.  All other spots will be determined by national ranking.  Team selection is based on cumulative points form the competitions.  If there is a tie, the last competition will be weighted more heavily.
