OMST 1.9_1.10

OMST parents and athletes,

Thanks to all the athletes who participated in our first holiday period and although the conditions could have been better, everyone was extremely positive and pushed it everyday.  Our coaching staff witnessed a ton of progression from all the kids over the course of the week. The good news is that Okemo is doing an impressive job pumping out an insane amount of snow thanks to cold temps and it looks like they will be blowing in the Crazy Train Park this week.

Coach Eddie Johnson and I will not be here over the next two weekends as we will be in Colorado with OMS. Betsy, Garrison, Gabe Vastola, and junior coaches Jack Valentine and Ben Black will be at Okemo. Gabe coached with OMST several years ago and teaches at the Springfield Technical Center. Gabe will be filling in here and there throughout the season. Although we will be taking 9 snowboarders with us to CO, there will still be a high athlete to coach ratio this weekend, so please bear with us. Coach Matt Fortuna is on the mend and will be back to coaching on the 16th.

As most of you know, this weekend’s USASA Southern Vermont Series Slopestyle events at Stratton have been cancelled due to conditions. USASA is looking at rescheduling one of the slopestyle events to Okemo in the latter part of the season to still offer 4 slopestyle events for our Series.

Please be safe this weekend and hopefully some fresh snow will fall here soon!
