Hole Shot Tour
The Hole Shot Cross Tour is a competition designed to bridge the gap between grassroots and world cup level for Snowboardcross and Skicross. The event also brings together athletes across the country to identify the top juniors in the country. Athletes 15 (SBX)/ 16 (SX) and older compete together in an open-class style event. The top juniors will be named to U.S. Snowboarding’s and U.S. Freeskiing Project Gold, a group of the top development athletes in the country who will train together in the summer and are invited to other select projects. Athletes also qualify for Junior World Championships and World Cup events from the Hole Shot Tour. Athletes must have a current National USSA license and FIS license prior to registering.
