USASA Nationals start Sunday at Copper Mountain

Starting Sunday, more than 1,600 competitors will take to the slopes of Copper Mountain for the 2011 United States of America Snowboard Association National Championships.

The two-week competition will feature competitors – ages 4-64 – duking it out in snowboarding and freeskiing events, each with a divisional national title on the line.

Boarding competitions make up the first week, taking place from Sunday through Thursday. Halfpipe, slopestyle, boardercross, slalom and giant slalom contests will take place each day.

Then, the skiers get into action on April 10 with pipe, slope and skiercross events each of the three days.

The split scheduling is new for the competition, allowing for the “growth in both sports,” according to a USASA press release.

The event showcases the top regional talent from across the country, as all competitors had to qualify for the field.
