Amateur riders from around the country traveled to Copper Mt, CO. for the USASA Nationals last week. It’s a long standing tradition for any competitive minded snowboarder with the means to compete and qualify for the Amateur Nationals, to make the trek and compete in the season-finale against riders from all national regions in all disciplines. From “7 and under” to “60 and over” Nationals week is a chance to compete against the best. This year, GNU riders braved the altitude to compete at Copper and climb the podiums for their prestigious National titles. Congratulations to all for the Unreal Snowboarding!
