OMST 2.6_2.7

OMST parents and athletes,

The slopestyle weekend was a great success as everyone rode really well over the two days at Mount Snow. We set a team record with 20+ OMS/OMST athletes who competed and had an athletes in nearly every age group! This weekend, the last set of USASA BX races will be at Stratton on Saturday and Sunday. For the athletes who are not racing, there will be a heavy dose of halfpipe this weekend as Okemo’s pipe is scheduled to open on Wednesday and will be the first full size pipe open east of the Rockies!

USASA BX  #3 and #4 at Stratton:

Please meet OMST coaches in the West Wing of the Stratton Base Lodge at 7:30am on Saturday and Sunday.

Online registration: Please make sure that you register your child online for this weekend’s events by visiting the following link:  Online registration closes on Thursday 2/4 at midnight.

Bibs: Make sure that your child brings their USASA bib to the event

Tune and Base structure: We are now halfway through the season and also time for a base grind and structure and board tune. Like treads on a tire, bases need structure to reduce drag. A base structure helps a board glide more smoothly and makes it faster.  A structure and edge sharpening are especially important for speed and if you could have your child’s board tuned by the weekend, that would be great. The Totem Pole in Ludlow offers excellent tuning services.

Friday BX Training: Eddie Johnson and Betsy Gritman will be leading a BX training session at Stratton on Friday for athlete who are 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 and provide you with a meeting time and location. Eddie’s email is: Training tickets are $25 and athletes must bring their USASA card or printout of membership to receive the discount. A 1/2 day training fee of $60 must be dropped off at the Comp Center for OMST athletes who will be training on Friday.

If anyone has any questions on anything, please let me know.
