The AASI Rider Rally kicked off Monday at Colorado’s Arapahoe Basin and will continue through through Friday, May 11, offering several days of incredible shredding and education with AASI Snowboard Team members and snowboarding colleagues from around the country.
The event includes freeriding with Team members, followed by four days of on-snow exploration, clinics for all levels of instructors, networking, and parties each evening. Attendees can receive 24 continuing education credits (6 per day).
Here, AASI Team members Brennan Metzler and Nicholas Alfieri wrap up the
events from Day 3.
Nick Alfieri: On Day 3, people really got into a groove and were getting to know each other better. The day started with giveaways for people who had exceptional clinic participation and Rider Rally spirit.
Brennan Metzler: Day 3 was rockstar! After two days of socials and getting feet back on snow, the Rider Rally crew really seemed to hit their stride. At this point, everyone knows each other, builds on each other’s successes, and pushes one another to try new things.
Highlights include multiple sets of giveaways, a fun après social on the beach, and of course, a range of on snow clinics that covered technical, people-based topics.
NA: I’m looking forward to Day 4. Today is the final day for Burton demos,
and the last day where the whole community will be spending time together at après before people have to leave.
BM: I’m excited to see where the community takes today’s experiences. The sun is out, the snow is soft, and for a lot of people, this is the last chance to snowboard and hang out with friends on snow before the summer ahead.
