USASA – South Tahoe Series Competition
The USASA South Tahoe Series is a sanctioned non-profit regional series of the National Organization of the United States of America Snowboard and Freeski Association. The Vision of the USASA is to be the premier snowboard and freeski organization in the United States. The mission is to facilitate fun and fair events for all ages across the country, to attract snowboarders and freeskiers, promote their development, provide member education, and influence the future of our sports.
During every snowboard and Freeski season, we hold 12-18 Freeride and race competitions. The competitions are in six different disciplines, Slopestyle, Half Pipe, Rail Jam and Boardercross/Skiercross for our Snowboarders and Skiiers. In addition, we hold Slalom and Giant Slalom events for our snowboard competitors.
Athletes in our series are made up of Snowboard and Ski amateur athletes who are embarking on an adventure into exploring their skills in a competitive environment. We are all ages and ability levels.
In order to compete in these events, athletes must be a current member of the USASA. Membership is $85.00 for the year if purchased by October 31st and $100 after October 31st. A USASA membership as a South Tahoe Series member enables the athlete to participate in any sanctioned USASA event across the country. There is an event fee per competition that varies depending on the event and location.
Members do not have to be a member of any particular mountain nor do they have to be a part of a team to try out competitions in any of our disciplines.
USASA Members earn points from their Regional competition results to qualify for the National Compeition that will be held in April 2016 at Copper Mountain, Colorado. There are different ways to qualify for an invite to compete at Nationals.
For the complete rulebook or for more information on Nationals qualifications, please go to the USASA website.
We look forward to seeing you at one of our events! Pray for snow!!!
