From Sierra Nevada College: 

At the close of the 2016 U.S. Collegiate Ski and Snowboard Association (USCSA) Collegiate National Championships in Lake Placid this weekend, SNC Tahoe’s men and women had captured either the gold or silver overall team titles in all three of their divisions – snowboarding, freeskiing, and alpine skiing. The teams will return to Lake Tahoe this week.
The Men’s teams captured the Gold in snowboarding and the Silver overall in both freeskiing and alpine skiing, while the women’s teams brought home two Golds overall in alpine and freeskiing, plus a Silver in snowboarding.
SNC president traveled with the teams as support
On Saturday, SNC president Dr. Alan Walker, was interviewed in the box by USCSA about the legacy the ski and snowboard teams have built that motivates other athletes at the school to build winning teams: “Once you’ve set the bar the way our winter-related sports teams have done, everyone else wants to come up to that bar. It’s a great way to build an athletics program at a school that is on the way up.”
An avid Alpine racer himself, Dr. Walker traveled with the teams to Lake Placid to watch them perform; he will compete in his own races at the NASTAR national finals in Steamboat, Col. later this month.
