Abby Champagne earned her first USASA National Championships title in PSL Tuesday.

Racing for the Open Class riders wrapped up on Tuesday at the USASA National Snowboard Championships at Copper Mountain Resort with slalom competition taking to the perfectly prepared Copperopolis slope, where Abby Champagne won her first career National Championships title and Robbie Burns made it two-for-two after taking the giant slalom win on Monday.

The second day of snowboard competition at the 2019 USASA Nationals Championships was filled with blue skies and history making moments in every age group from Ruggies to Methuselahs. Here are just a few:

Forty-nine year old Lynn Ott takes home her first National Title in PGS at Copper Mountain as part of the 30th Anniversary USASA Nationals.

Day two of competition at the 2019 USASA National Snowboard Championships at Copper Mountain Resort dawned sunny and cold and - save for the occasional wind gust - perfect for another full day of competition at the world’s biggest and best celebration of snowboarding.

Monday’s competition line-up was highlighted by giant slalom racing in the Open Class group, where two long-time USASA competitors earned their first Nationals titles, as Lynn Ott and Robbie Burns were both able to achieved a goal they had been chasing through a dozen (or more) Nationals showings by taking the 2019 PGS gold medals.

At 49-years-old, Ott is a force both on and off the slope, proving that age ain’t nothing but a number with her performance on Monday, while also working tirelessly behind the scenes as the head of the US Snowboard Racing Team, the number one support organization for alpine snowboarding in the States since USSA halted funding for the racers.

Seven-year-old Chinese phenom, Patti Zhou, made waves at the first day of the 2019 USASA National Championships taking home National titles in both halfpipe and rail jam. In Columbia Halfpipe finals, Zhou landed back-to-back 540s, impressing the judges who gave her the highest score of day with 99. When nightfall hit, she took to the Hard Rock Riviera Maya Rail Jam to earn her second gold medal of Nationals competition. 

The first day of competition at the 30th anniversary of the USASA National Snowboard Championships went down on Sunday at Copper Mountain Resort, where a typically jam-packed day of riding saw action across all six Nationals venues.

The top-tier Open Class riders highlighted the day over on the boardercross course, where a strong field duked it out on the tricky Copper track and Anna Miller and Cole Johnson took top honors in the respective women’s and men’s fields.

Last season’s third-overall rider on the Nor-Am circuit, 22-year-old Miller came into competition in Copper fresh off her first full season on the World Cup tour, and on Sunday her rise to the upper echelon of the SBX world was on full display as she put on a dominant performance.

Over 1,400 USASA members from 40 states marched in the Parade of Athletes as part of USASA's 30th Annual Snowboarding National Championships Opening Ceremonies.

The 2019 USASA National Snowboard Championships are set to take to the slopes of Colorado’s Copper Mountain Resort this weekend to begin five jam-packed days of competition, as well over 1000 of the nation’s best amateur riders have gathered to square off in halfpipe, slopestyle, slalom, giant slalom, snowboard cross, and rail jam competitions.

While the USASA National Championships already holds the distinction as the largest such snow-sports event in the world, the 2019 iteration of the event is made extra special by the fact that this season we celebrate 30 years as an organization. And, with the USASA’s dedication to growing snowboarding at a grassroots level by facilitating competitions, fostering a community amongst our members, and helping to build the next generation of leaders and champions, the next 30 years are looking bright.
