Snowshoe Magazine Becomes Platinum Sponsor of the U.S. Snowshoe Association and its 2013 National Snowshoe Championships

Snowshoe Magazine, the Internet’s No. 1 resource for all things related to the sport of snowshoeing, is stepping forward as the Platinum Sponsor of the United States Snowshoe Association (USSSA) and its 2013 U.S. National Snowshoe Championships.

“Since starting this wonderful magazine in 2003, I’ve always dreamed of supporting the sport of snowshoe racing and its governing body by becoming a sponsor of the national championship races,” said Ryan Alford, owner and founder of Snowshoe Magazine. “After printing a magazine in 2005 and then relying exclusively on the Internet to circulate our content, we’ve helped introduce the sport or snowshoeing and snowshoe racing to thousands of outdoor enthusiasts.”

The United States Snowshoe Association is devoted to promoting outdoor winter safety in conjunction with recreational snowshoeing. The Association also serves as the lead governing body for the sport of snowshoe racing in the USA.

This past season, Frisco, Colo. successfully hosted the 2012 National Snowshoe Championships and many of the world’s top snowshoe racers. As a result, two of Colorado’s top athletes were crowned champions: Josiah Middaugh of Vail and Sara Tarkington of Boulder. For the upcoming season, Bend, Ore. will host the 2013 National Snowshoe Championships on March 15-17.

“Ryan Alford’s dedication and passion to developing the sport of snowshoeing has long been so important to the USSSA,” said the Association’s Sports Director, Mark Elmore. “We are thrilled that Snowshoe Magazine has committed to stepping up its partnership with the U.S. Snowshoe Association this season.”

In addition to supporting the USSSA, Snowshoe Magazine has become the Presenting Sponsor of the Granite State Snowshoe Series and a general supporter of acidotic RACING—the organizer of the snowshoe series and other events in New Hampshire and surrounding states.
