OMST 1.23_1.24 and USASA Stratton BX Info

OMST parents and athletes,

Thanks to cold weather, some fresh snow, and an excellent snowmaking effort by Okemo, the conditions are back on track.  Snow Park Technologies and the Park staff are currently in Crazy Train, so we should have a slopestyle course in place for the weekend which is great. After Crazy Train, they will be moving to Lower Tomahawk to get another park built for the weekend.
USASA BX #1 and #2 at Stratton
For the athletes competing in this weekend’s USASA BX events #1 and #2 at Stratton, please make sure that you have pre-registered your child for the events by visiting the following link and registering online: USASA SVT SERIES  Registration closes on Thursday 1/21 at midnight. 
Athletes must meet coaches in the west wing (gondola side) of the Stratton Base Lodge at 7:30am on both days.  Athletes must also bring $20 cash on Saturday to cover their bib for the season.  This is new to this year and the bib will be kept all season and must be brought to each event the rest of the season. The $20 will be reimbursed at the end of the USASA SVT Series year. If your child already has a bib, please make sure they bring to the event. Also, there will be no GROMS Okemo training this weekend as Betsy will be at the BX events with the Groms. Good luck to all who are competing!
Lastly, if the BX course is open for training on Friday, Eddie Johnson and Betsy Gritman will be leading a BX training session with athletes interested. If anyone would like to train on Friday, please make sure that an email is sent to Eddie in advance so he can tally the numbers- If for some reason the course is not open, Eddie and Betsy will hold a training session on Friday at Okemo with a variety of BX drills and techniques. Eddie will email all who are interested with details and costs when we hear from Stratton.
For the OMST athletes (ages 10-18) not competing at Stratton, training will be as normal this weekend with an 8am meet at the Sitting Bull on both days.
