Weekly update for 2/10-2/12

 This past weekend was a very successful weekend for MMSC with lots of great results both Saturday in Halfpipe at Loon Mt, NH. and at Stowe for GS. Our MMSC riders continue to make us proud on many levels.

This week is again a very busy one.

Saturday we will send a crew of riders to Loon New Hampshire for a Half Pipe contest. We will leave from Mac's Market in Stowe @ 5:15, Shaws parking lot in Waterbury @ 5:30. This trip will be a down and back trip the only cost for this trip will be gas. I am estimating the cost will be between $15 and $20 a rider depending on the #.

Remember all riders must register online for the New Hampshire series HP. To register please go to From there click on the shaded box to the right of the chosen event;  If you will not be attending with your child please contact so she can email the waiver to you.

After the contest which should be over by noon. We will stay and train for Sunday's slope style and then return @ 3:30. This will be a great opportunity to get a half pipe result in the books before our NVT HP's in Killington. The New Hampshire series is a great series to continue to work on developing our half pipe skills and to get experience in a competition setting. This series is a small series, the events run quickly. Please email me asap if you are interested in heading to loon on Saturday.

After further review and doing an analyzation of this Saturdays forecast we will change plans and offer slope training on Friday instead of Saturday at Sugarbush. Saturday is forecasted to be very cold and windy which does not make for good slope style training weather.

I am still currently working on discounted passes for Sugarbush. I hope to have more solid information for you all tomorrow.

Nick "Sev" Pintauro will meet everyone in the Mt. Ellen base lodge at 9:45am. Our full day crew will ride till 12:00 and break for lunch from 12:00 till 12:45. Any rider who can not make the morning but would like to meet up for the afternoon should be there by 12:45. After our lunch break we will ride the Mt Ellen park till 3:30.

Please email me if you plan to ride Sugarbush on Friday. Also include if you will ride full day or just Afternoon.

Sunday we will have our first USASA NVT slope style at Sugarbush. Registration will be on the third floor in Mt. Ellen Base Lodge from 8-9am.

Last this Sunday we will have coaches available at Stowe for any rider not competing in Slopestyle. Please email me if your rider will not be competing in Slopestyle at Sugarbush but will be training at Stowe on Sunday. In order to Staff correctly for Sunday I will need to know asap.
