USASA Snowboard Slopestyle

 Spencer Vaughan, of Steamboat Springs, flies through the air while spinning a frontside rotation off a kicker during the USASA slopestyle competition Saturday, January 10th, in Golden Peak. Vaughan finished with the highest points in the men's open division with a score of 90.0.

At the request of the Vail Daily, I took my camera gear, my board and my snowboard poles to hobble around with protecting my injured knee to witness the USASA snowboard event for the season opening of the Golden Peak terrain park. Lots of rippers and a handful of poachers today.
