U.S. Ski & Snowboard today announced the 2020 Hole Shot Snowboardcross and Skicross Tour. The Hole Shot Tour will consist of four NorAm stops with the final stop selected as the NorAm Finals. The Hole Shot Tour is designed to bridge the gap between grassroots and FIS World Cup level competitions. The Tour also qualifies athletes to the Junior World Championships and Project Gold Development Camps.
The Tour will kick off in New York with stops at Gore Mountain and Holiday Valley. The Tour then heads west to Colorado’s Ski Cooper. The USASA Nationals at Copper Mountain, Colo., will serve as the final stop of the Tour and NorAm Finals.
The Hole Shot Tour is open to athletes ages 15 (SBX) / 16 (SX) and older, who are ready to take their racing to the next level. Athletes must have a current FIS and U.S. Ski & Snowboard membership to compete in the events. Each stop will also include a U.S. Revolution Tour event catering to the 13-15-year-old age groups.
“We are looking forward to another great Hole Shot Tour,” said U.S. Ski & Snowboard Sport Development Senior Manager Ashley Deibold. “These events showcase the top up and coming snowboardcross and skicross athletes.”
Registration will open Dec. 1, 2019. Please visit usskiandsnowboard.org for detailed schedules and registration information.
