Current Blast

Updated May 28, 2020 at 9:02 AM

Hello Busters and Families!

 

Epic! That describes the Leap Day Storm of 2020. It was historic, mostly not forecasted, totally under the radar… and it dropped 41 inches of fluff in three days! Buster coach Dusty Burke counted on less than five fingers the number of better ski days in his life! In addition to face shots and freshies, kudos to Buster coaches AND kids for keeping each other safe. When that much snow falls at once, safety and accounting for all become a team effort and everyone’s responsibility. Way to go Busters!

 

Mountain Conditions

A reminder to all that March is traditionally Vermont’s snowiest month. So don’t be surprised when we get hit by another big dump! Meanwhile, this week, temperatures have been all over the place and we're in a spring freeze-thaw-freeze cycle. Today, many ski school groups who have been skiing all over the mountain dialed back their terrain choices due to firm conditions. That could be the situation this weekend – including woods skiing, black diamonds, etc. We make this promise: Buster coaches and leadership will make the best and safest decisions we can for each group and for the program as a whole. And please remember: Buster coaches’ decisions regarding trail and terrain selection are final.

 

This Weekend’s Events

  • Sat, March 7th, 1230PM. Skills Quest, Comp Hill. (We canceled SQ last weekend in lieu of shredding pow; this week we’ll have our own private hill space to see where our skills are in this last month of the Buster season!)
  • Sat, March 7th, 1030AM. Ski with a Patroller. Top Patrol building (aka “269”). Mikah Ackerman’s Stowebusters.
  • Sun, March 8th, All Day. Garden Party! All Busters – those who are already park-rats AND those who are just doing their first-ever 90-degree slide on a box – will be sessioning in our very own, private terrain garden behind Midway Lodge. Parents, come check us out!
  • Sun, March 8th, 10AM. Ski with a Patroller. Top Patrol building (aka “269”). Chris Olson’s Mightybusters.

 

Snow Science

While Busters ski “in-bounds” at Stowe, we continue to incorporate snow science and avalanche awareness into our Buster experience. Groups have been digging snow pits with shovels and studying the layers in our pack (Might it slide? Is it stable?), measuring trail pitch with inclinometers, and rescuing “Avy Bear” with avalanche transceivers. Busters is an all-mountain experience – we ski everywhere from parks to trails to woods to gates. And we learn about snow and snow travel awareness while we’re at it.

 

Mark Your Calendars

  • March 28. Buster Championships! All Busters. A Giant Slalom race – fastest single run wins!
  • March 28. End of the Season Buster Après Party! Pizza for all… and a cash bar for parents.
  • March 29. We are not focused on this… but March 29th is the last day of Busters (sad!). Four weekends between now and then – that’s four weekends of great times, group camaraderie, and amazing skiing experiences. Don’t miss out… soon Busters 2019-2020 will be memories-only!

 

Thanks Buster Community! See you on the weekend!
