Former Slalom Bronze medalist at the USASA National Championships, Andrew Poladian, has come out of retirement to dominate the Open Class Alpine Events. Poladian racked up three Gold medals this weekend (2 in Giant Slalom & 1 in Slalom) on his 1st weekend racing since his decision to return to USA Snowboard competitions. Hard work, his new house and preparing athletes for the future are Andrew's focuses as we move through another Olympic year.

We had another great CMS weekend with an even larger number of competitiors than the week before and with the strongest showing of skiers yet. The first day at Windham Mountain brought blue skies and sunshine but also a very long day on the hill due to the first Giant Slalom competition of the season and a very popular Slopestyle contest. On Sunday at Catamount we were lucky not to get rained out  and were able to host  two alpine races and the second Halfpipe of the season.

The first Slopestyle event of the season took place in Hunter Mountain’s Park Avenue terrain park. Mike Valez and his park crew (local Bozwreck crew) built a jump line that consisted of a flat box, to a medium table jump, to an option of flat box or a flat down rail or a corrugated pipe/log jam, to a large table (with a smaller option), to an even larger jump (also with a smaller option), to the NIKE 6.0 car (a multi option box feature). These six features made a wide variety of runs possible and over 75 athletes showed up in -4 degree weather.
