Editor’s Note: The normal Morning Update has been posted as the story just under this announcement!
The Southeastern Division of the United States College Ski Association will compete Saturday, January 27 and Sunday, January 28 at Hawksnest Ski Resort, located atop Seven Devils, North Carolina.
The Southeastern Division of USCSA is comprised of university and college race teams from North Carolina and adjoining states. Annually, the Division holds several race events at ski resorts on the east coast, sponsoring events in West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and North Carolina.
USCSA is the sports federation for collegiate team ski racing and snowboard competition in America.
The USCSA provides competition and development opportunities for student/athletes in a team atmosphere leading toward National Titles in Alpine racing, Cross-Country racing and Snowboarding.
The USCSA National Championships are scheduled for March 5-10, 2007 in Winter Park, CO.
“We are very pleased to be hosting the USCSA, said Lenny Cottom, owner of Hawksnest Resort. “Our Topgun Slope, the longest steep slope in the South is a perfect fit for the USCSA. And our Sock-em-dog slope will be groomed into a boadercross course by Richard Rominger, our park specialist.”
On Saturday, approximately 250 college racers will compete in a Giant Slalom down Topgun. On Sunday, a Boardercross and a Skicross will challenge the college racers as well as the general public who are invited to compete in Sunday’s events.
On Sunday, the public will compete in two divisions, 18 and under, and over-eighteen-years of age. Registration for the events is from 7am to 8am on the second floor of Hawksnest’s Lodge. Race events will begin at 9am.
A race fee of $10 will be charged. In addition, competitors will need to purchase lift tickets.
Continuing its tradition of hosting competitions, more highlights of this season’s Hawksnest events include the Crescent Council’s Slalom and Giant Slalom, the High Country Junior Races Series and the Nest Games.
