A few weeks ago (April 1-7), Los Alamos snowboarders spent the week up at Copper Mountain, Colo., for the United States of America Snowboard and Freeski Association (USASA) National Championships.

In order to qualify to compete in the National Championships, they had to win the USASA Southwest Freeride Series, to earn the right to represent New Mexico against the best snowboarders from the rest of the country.
