For Immediate Release
WHITE LAKE, MICH – Snowboarders from 10 Michigan high schools will compete in the Michigan High School Snowboard Association Bordercross State Championships Feb. 8, 2013 at Alpine Valley in White Lake. Racing begins at 9 a.m., with team and individual honors on the line.
Boardercross (also known as snowboard cross or SBX) tests riders’ skill and nerve as they race down the mountain in groups of four or five, over a course that includes jumps, rollers and banked turns.
The Michigan High School Snowboard Association started nine years ago to promote the appreciation, understanding and growth of high school snowboarding in Michigan. Today the organization has the largest high school snowboarding program in the country, with 10 teams and more than 500 athletes in two leagues. Leagues are based at Alpine Valley and Mt. Brighton.
