Six local snowboarders named to U.S. team

— A big batch of Steamboat Spring snowboaders were included on Wednesday when the U.S. Snowboard Team announced its athletes for the season.

No surprise, leading the way was a trio of half-pipe riders, including Taylor Gold and Matt Ladley on the men’s side and Arielle Gold on the women’s.

Nik Baden was on the top men’s slopestyle team. Mick Dierdorff, meanwhile, was on the Snowboardcross B team. Justin Reiter, finally, was the lone member of the U.S. Snowboarding Alpine Team.
