Greetings! I hope everyone enjoyed their summer and is getting as excited as I am about this upcoming winter. As the leaves change and the mornings become frosty, my first issue of Transworld arrives and snowsports video premiers come to town, I know that the season is just around the corner. It is all I can do to not gear up and sit on my porch and stare up at the sky for the first glimpse of snow like my dog staring at his ball waiting for me to throw it.
We are very fortunate here in the Western Division to have two of our members make The AASI National Demo Team. I would like to congratulate Chris Hargrave and Seth Johns for their hard and dedication and look forward to working with them this season.
As always, we have a lot of cool snowboard events scheduled this year including a Freestyle event at Woodward Tahoe. Come check out this truly amazing facility. We also have many educational courses scheduled, including 3 different locations this season for our resort trainers course. We are working hard to bring the training and education to you and your resort.
This season is shaping up and looks to be a great one. I am looking forward to seeing all of you participating in events this year and thank al of you for help making this division the best.
Chris Lange, Snowboard VP
