Resort with public boarder cross course

I've been searching Google for a resort that maintains a public boarder cross course.

I live in Steamboat, CO so something near CO or Utah is best but I'm willing to travel anywhere to get my board on a course.

BurtonX8 mentioned USASA earlier. Looks like they organize open events on a regional level.

I highly suggest the USASA events. It's a really good atmosphere, friendly people, raffles after every event, and free goodies from the sponsors. It's all ages and abilities, although you are judged/timed by your age group, but it's just a lot of fun and really helps improve riding all around. Yes it's competitions but its a very relaxed atmosphere. It's been a few years but I think the cost is 75$ for the membership and 20 per event if you register online. Helmets are required in all events.

Met some of the friendliest people ever here at the SnowOhio series, including Louie Vito, who used to kill it here in the slopestyle/halfpipe events.

I don't know about others areas, but around here the events are..

Slopestyle
Halfpipe
Slalom
Giant Slalom
Boardercross.

The one at copper is open to the public. Or at least it was a few years back. Very fun. Not as huge as the one on the olympics though.

I was at Windham today. I've never seen a bordercross course there. I know they build a snowmobile cross course occasionally. They DO have an awesome kicker with a nifty air bag set up though.

They have one at boreal and alpine, which are in the tahoe area, kinda far from you haha.
but if you want an olympic-ish one, Sugarbowl has the actual course one of the guys trained on for the ski cross, idk if the course is any different? but they plan on opening it to the public soon.
