TRUCKEE, Calif. (April 24, 2010) United States of America Snowboard Association (USASA) awarded scholarship funds totaling $15,000 to 77 USASA members at the 2010 USASA National Championships. The 21st Annual USASA National Championships were held at Copper Mountain, CO on April 3-9, 2010. The week of snowboard and FreeSkiing competitions and festivities attracted over 1,500 riders between the ages of 3 to 66, from 32 Regional Series across the country, specializing in a variety of snowboard and FreeSki disciplines.
So I spent what appears to be my last day on snow at Squaw on Saturday. It was the perfect way to end an outstanding season. I was trying front 7’s all day and came very close to landing a front 9. It was so sunny and warm. I’m bummed to be off snow, I miss it already!
The Olympic Spirit swept the snowboarding community this season, making me and so many others deeply proud to be citizens of the USA! I was delighted to be a part of the mayhem -- qualifying to compete in all five Grand Prix Olympic Qualifier Stops. After the team was selected in Park City, I had the opportunity to head to to Vancouver to cheer on my teammates who made the final Olympic cut. In addition to attending the men and women's Halfpipe Comps, I got see Apolo Ono won his first Speed Skating medal of the games and cheer Seth Wescott and Nate Holland on in the BoarderCross finals.
