Team Summit sends 42 snowboarders to USASA Nationals at Copper April 1-7

The Team Summit snowboarding team is sending 42 athletes to the USA Snowboard and Freeski Association National Championships at Copper Mountain Resort from April 1-7. The team is sending athletes to compete in all six disciplines — boardercross, slopestyle, halfpipe, rail jam, slalom and giant slalom — and competitors range in age from 6-19 years old. With a good showing at Nationals, many of the kids earn spots on the U.S Revolution Tour next year for halfpipe, slopestyle and boardercross.
