PARK CITY, UT (March 9) – The U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association is making changes to its schedule for the upcoming March 19-23 Nature Valley U.S. Alpine Championships in Squaw Valley. The scheduled super G races have been canceled to allow organizers to focus on giant slalom and slalom races. The super G events will not be rescheduled. In addition to the U.S. Championship giant slalom and slalom events, USSA is also adding an International Ski Federation giant slalom for men and women.
