MMSC snowboard Nov. 7 weekend recap and weekly update

Photo by Brian Jenkins @
This past Saturday MMSC began its first session of our new indoor freestyle training program @ Green Mt. Gymnastics. Using foam pits, Trampolines, tumble tracks and spring floors, MMSC coaches work with riders to learn air awareness and body control. Coaches guide each rider through progressions that teach proper front flips; back flips and overall take offs and landings.

This session will continue to evolve over the next 7 weeks. Our facilities are still a work in progress and will expand in the coming weeks.

On Wednesday the 9th we will have all of our riders focus on tumbling and continue to expand there knowledge of body control.

On Sunday this weekend MMSC held it's second rail session of the season @ the Burton factory Jib park. Parents and coaches trucked over 3 tons of snow to make it happen. We had a great turn out and all had a ton of fun. It's a great chance for us to get on snow and begin to dial in tricks before our mountains are even open. Thanks to all of our dedicated parents who helped out.

WCAX channel 3 news stopped by to film us and interview Jamal and some of our kids. The coverage aired on the 5pm news as well as the 11pm news and the 6am news.

Next Saturday is our MMSC Hall of Fame Dinner. Where parents and coaches kick off the season with a semi formal social event. This event is a huge fundraiser for MMEF our scholarship foundation. Also this coming Saturday will be our second session of our GMG freestyle program. This session will be held as an open house, and the time will be moved from 2pm - 4pm due to the HOF dinner.

Hope to see many of you this week.
