The USASA Rocky Mountain Series will host at least one World Rookie Tour / World Snowboard Points List slopestyle, big air and halfpipe for the 2017 season. Tentative host resorts will be Copper Mountain for HP / BA and Keystone for the slopestyle contest.
There are quite a few new USASA membership intiatives too. Skier age classes are now exactly the same as the snowboard age classes, so yes we'll have both Ruggie skiers now as well as Ruggie snowboarders.
Speaking of Ruggies, their USASA membership is $0.00, yep FREE and Grommet USASA membership is now only $50 a reduction of 50% in price. They've also begun a new Parent supporting membership, which is not eligible to register as a competitor but gets you an exclusive t-shirt, access informational webinbars and parent sessions at Nationals. Sign up for a new parent membership for yourself today!
There are also a few other initiatives that we're working on for this up coming season so please stay tuned.
Hope you're having an amazing summer!
