OMST 1/7-1/8 and USASA GS and Slalom Comps

OMST Parents and athletes,

Happy New Year to all and I hope everyone enjoyed the amazing conditions over the holiday break. It was a first in a long time that we had the option to escape the crazy lift lines with t-bar access to two awesome parks and we saw some excellent progression from all the OMST athletes. Kudos to Okemo and SPT for building both parks this early and in time for the holiday break.
This weekend marks the start to our competition season in which nearly every weekend from now through early March consists of Southern Vermont Series USASA events:
USASA GS and Slalom at Killington (1/7) and Bromley (1/8) 
On Saturday, there will be a USASA Slalom and GS doubleheader held at Killington and on Sunday there will be 2 Slaloms and 2 GS events held at Bromley Mountain. If your child plans on competing in these events, you can pre-register online by visiting the USASA SVS page.  Online registration closes on Thursday 1/6 at midnight.  The Series has decided to do all GS and SL this weekend so there will not be another opportunity to compete in these events after this weekend.
Athletes should plan on meeting OMST Coaches at 7:30am in the K1 Base Lodge on Saturday and in the Bromley Base Lodge at 7:30am on Sunday. Drive time from Ludlow is 35 minutes to both mountains.  Also, please make sure your child’s board is tuned and hot waxed with weather appropriate wax for the event. Totem Pole offers excellent race tuning and board structure services.
 
Friday 1/6 Gate Training
Also, if any OMST athletes would like to receive extra training in the gates, we will be setting gates on Friday morning with gate training from 8:30am-11:15am. The cost for morning training is $30 and you can pay with cash or check at the Comp Center. Please let me know if your child will be there so we can staff accordingly. Athletes who will be training on Friday should meet OMS coaches at 8:30am in front of the Sitting Bull.
Lastly, OMST athletes who will not be racing this weekend will follow our regular training schedule from 8am-1:30pm on both days.
