OMST 1/20-1/21 and USASA Stratton BX

OMST parents and athletes,

Due to the rain followed by another arctic blast, MLK weekend had it’s challenges with conditions BUT we are receiving a bit of snow today into tonight (calling for 3-5″) and the mountain is working hard on getting the slopes back in shape quickly. Conditions should be great for the weekend!
Our boardercross athletes will have their first USASA BX competitions this weekend at Stratton on Saturday, 1/20 and Sunday, 1/21. If your child is competing, please make sure you pre-register your child for both events asap via www.usasa.org Athletes should plan on meeting coaches in the West Wing of the Stratton Base Lodge at 7:30am. Stratton is about a 40 minute drive from Okemo and give yourself another 5-10 minutes for parking. Also, please make sure that your child’s board receives an edge sharpen and weather appropriate hot wax prior to the events. The Totem Pole in Ludlow offers excellent tuning services.
Friday BX training with OMS will also an option for our weekend athletes at Stratton. This is a great opportunity for your child to receive some extra training prior to the event. If the course is open (I will know on Thurs) training will be at Stratton, if not training will be at Okemo. Training will be from 8:30am-12pm and I will let you know the training plan on Thursday evening. Training is $75 through the Competition Center.
For OMST athletes who will not be competing, training will be as usual at Okemo from 8am-1:30pm. A heavy dose of park and pipe training will be our focus for the weekend.
