Truckee boarders win big at Northstar

Staff Reports

This past weekend was a successful one for several Truckee snowboarders at the United States of America Snowboard Association’s (USASA) competitions held at Northstar-at-Tahoe.

The USASA held a giant slalom and a halfpipe competition as a part of its North Tahoe Series, a group of locally organized northern California events, in order to give amateur snowboarders a chance to demonstrate their ability. The halfpipe competition on Saturday drew about 129 freestyle snowboarders ranging from seven to 50 years old. The giant slalom, held on Sunday, attracted about 102 competitors.

The North Tahoe Series will be staging 10 more events over the course of the season at various ski areas. The next event, a slopestyle, will be held at Boreal Mountain Playground on Saturday, Jan. 22, followed by a halfpipe event on Sunday, Jan.23.
