About BUST

Welcome to the BUST 2019-2020 website. We one of the biggest club sports at Boston University with about 50 riders at every skill level and we don’t have try-outs. We just ask that you are willing to represent BU at competitions or train hard this season to compete in the following if you do not feel like you are at the right level just yet.

Every Sunday we ride at one of the mountains on the drifter season pass, with our home mountain being Mount Snow in Vermont.  This year our pass includes Attitash MountainCrotched MountainWildcat MountainJack Frost Big Boulder,Liberty MountainRoundtop MountainWhitetail ResortMount Snow, Hunter Mountain, Alpine ValleyBoston Mills Brandywine and Mad River Mountain. We mainly go to Mount Snow and Attitash. The team rides for competitive purposes, having weekend trips as practices. This year we will be competing in USCSA’s Easter Conference, and hopefully we will be sending a number of riders to Nationals again.  Because we’re a club sport, we have access to athletic trainers at Fitrec and we are affiliated with BU’s Club Sports Department. We fundraise for the team too. In addition to the Sunday trips, this year we’ll have weekday trips. Lastly, we hold meetings and events throughout the year.

We frequently get questions about costs of being on the team. Well first of all, we have $150 club dues. With that you get all the perks of being on the team including, access to athletic trainers, tips from our more advanced members, team deals, and you get the camaraderie of being on a team! There is the season pass which is around $400 (we get a deal on that too, promo code BUSNOWBOARD). Buying the season pass basically “pays for itself” in four trips. However, being on the team is priceless. You’ll meet all kinds of great kids who might just become your best friends –  and they tend to.

Reach out to our officers so that they can add you to the team’s official group chat: We’ll keep you updated about meetings, Sunday/weekday trips, and competitions. We add some pictures as well with your help (send them to us!). We’ll also post event info and sponsor stuff. Keep us bookmarked! Follow our instagram @busnowtm
