Over 400 rippers from around the country and from a few far-reaching places around the world converged on Copper Mountain in Colorado for the 26th annual USASA Nationals on April 3rd-8th. This marked the ninth time the event was held at Copper and throngs of the world's future Olympians and  potential X Games riders all laid it on the line in halfpipe, slopestyle, boardercross, and in slalom events.

Nationals is a grassroots event that has long served as a feeder to pro level and Olympic competitions and this year the riding level was one of the highest we've ever seen.
