GoPro / Video Games Event Video Contest!  go-pro

Go Pro is sending a brand new Hero 3+ camera to each USASA Series for a video contest.  The best video edit from each series will be entered into a nationwide contest. From the 30 finalists, the top 10 videos, determined by a special guest panel of industry experts, pro athletes and videographers will be judged during snowboard and ski weeks at Copper during 2014 USASA National Championships. Some great prizes will be awarded to the contest winners and their home series. The SWCO Series team has been selected.  An email notice will come out soon with additional rules, shot requirements etc.  Members of the team will receive this information the week of January 27th.

Series Director Announcements:

Series Director transition - The SW Colorado Series went through a bit of a transition over the summer period. Christian Robertson from Crested Butte Mountain Resort has stepped down as Series Director to pursue career opportunities and enjoy his family, and time on the hill. Rick Lorenz and Brian Bolan of Durango, Colorado have taken the positions of Series Co-Directors for the SW Colorado Series. "We would like to extend our sincere thanks to Christian, and his friends and family as they've pursued the advancement of Snowboarding and Freestyle skiing in SW Colorado with USASA over the past 5 years. We wouldn't be where we're at today with out the efforts of Christian!" Rick and Brian call Durango Mountain Resort thier 'home' mountian. Rick has been an avid skier for 38 years, and Brian has been snowboarding for 15+ YEARS. This is the first time the USASA Series has been seated in Durango. During our first award ceremony in Crested Butte for the 2013 - 2014 season, come join us for a tribute and thanks to Christian.

Rail Jams are coming!!
Rail jams for SW Colorado Series are here!!  We've been able to work out with Durango Mountian Resort and Powderhorn Resort, the ability to host 3 Rail Jams in the series this year!  We're very excited to be able to add these to the series this year.
