New in 2020: Amateurs Compete Across Eight Age Groups to Qualify for USASA National Championships
Big Bear, CA (Feb 23, 2020) – ASA Entertainment wrapped two days of action-packed snowboarding contests and live concerts during the Nissan Super Girl Snow Pro at Bear Mountain Resort this weekend. Hosted by 4-time Olympian and 10-time X-Games Gold Medalist, Lindsey Jacobellis, the event showcased many U.S. and International Olympians, including Faye Gulini, Rosie Mancari, Sarka Pancochova, Carle Brenneman, Tess Critchlow, and more. Live concerts included Ally Brooke (Fifth Harmony) and New Hope Club.
Top amateurs also competed alongside the pros in a one-of-a-kind Pro-Am format designed to elevate the next generation of snowboarders, including team competitions that paired elite pros with amateur riders as young as six years old.
Day one of Super Girl Snow Pro featured high-flying Big Air jumps and tricks, with Olympian Silvia Mittermuller (Germany) in 1st, Possum Torr (New Zealand) in 2nd, and Serena Shaw (USA) in 3rd.
Torr, who came out of retirement for the event, wowed the judges by pulling out tricks like she was back at the Sochi Olympics. “I’m so grateful for Super Girl Pro. This contest is honestly one of the most fun, well produced contests I have ever been to. I’m so stoked to be back snowboarding with my friends again.”
