Along with the benefit of being able to participate in USASA sanctioned events, membership value is extensive. Added value for membership includes discounts to marquee freeski and snowboard camps, including $300 off Woodward Camps, $150 off Windells and High Cascade Camps, as well as discounts with SASS Global Travel. In addition, members also receive discounts for some of the industry's best products including hard goods at Donek and membership to ExpertVoice, a leading product advocacy platform created for industry influencers. Also, USASA will again offer global travel insurance through Global Rescue as the number one resource for your protection while traveling abroad.
The 2019-20 competition calendar will offer an improved and expanded athlete development pipeline for young skiers and riders, illustrating the commitment to provide a healthy future of our shared sports of freeskiing and snowboarding. More specifically, USASA will become the sole entry point for grassroots freeski and snowboard competition. The expanded development pipeline will offer five to six new co-hosted USASA, U.S. Ski & Snowboard, and FIS sanctioned regional events for slopestyle and halfpipe geared towards reducing travel costs and ultimately decreasing barriers to entry for young athletes looking to take the next step in their competitive journey. These changes are a result of fine-tuning the current development pipeline leading into FIS Nor-Am and other high-level freeski and snowboard competitions.
This year, members will notice an increase in membership prices from the 2018-19 season, purely as a function of USASA’s commitment to ensuring that all officials, judges, and coaches have been thoroughly screened and educated relative to SafeSport policies and procedures.
It would not be ski and snowboard season without the USASA Nationals. The 31st Annual USASA National Championships will take place at Colorado's Copper Mountain Resort, hosting freeski and snowboard slopestyle and halfpipe as well as ski cross, snowboard cross and parallel alpine snowboard events for all age groups. In addition, freeski and snowboard big air will be offered as a FIS-level competition demonstrating the commitment to aligning the development pipeline with the Olympic movement at the highest levels of the sport.
Together, U.S. Ski & Snowboard and USASA look forward to another great year of excellence, respect, fun and serving as the first step in the competitive journey for all of snowboarding and freeskiing in the United States.
