The Sierra Nevada College Ski and Snowboard Teams showcased their skills this past weekend at the United States Collegiate Ski and Snowboard Association’s (USCSA) Great West Regionals at Mammoth Mountain and achieved nothing short of success. Over the course of the two days, SNC swept the podium in nine of the ten individual events, competing against athletes from schools including Stanford; University of California, Los Angeles; University of California, Berkeley; and University of Nevada, Reno.

On top of this individual dominance, Sierra Nevada College also placed first in every team category as it prepares to defend its titles at Nationals in Lake Placid, New York, March 8th-16th.

The weekend consisted of multiple events spanning the two days.  On Saturday, the men’s and women’s, ski and snowboard Giant Slalom athletes hit the slopes, taking every podium in each discipline.  On Sunday, the alpine skiers raced on the slalom course, while the snowboarders and freeskiers hit the slopestyle course, placing first, second and third in all but the freeski men’s slopestyle where SNC placed first and second. See complete results below.
