Five years away created some serious longing. Finally, the U.S. Adaptive Championships will return to Big Sky, Montana from March 28 to April 2.  “They have a challenging hill and our athletes are really excited to go back there because it’s something different,” said USSA Adaptive Program Director Sandy Metzger. “We race on a lot of the same venues, so this is fun for our athletes. They get to compete on some other hills. They definitely have challenging hills that will be good for all of our athletes.”

The Championships will follow on the heels of the Paralympics.  “It’s nice to come home to the U.S. and finish up the season with a competition and a lot of support from the USSA,” according to Adaptive Alpine Team member Stephani Victor. “I always love the Championships. For me it’s like the prom, it’s a great way to finish up the year.”

The speed races will take place first followed by the tech events.
